Respond to Review of LaVietnamita
Review: I went here after noticing that they had 'vegan' written on their blackboard under the list of options. The way of ordering is to tick little laminated menu cards with a whiteboard marker. There is a menu of the day which says it applies on weekdays but I went on a Friday and was told that it was not applicable so I am not sure about that. This menu had a list of the curries which would be vegetarian with tofu. I got a seasonal curry with tofu, although it initially came with pork (yuck!!), I did not realise you had to tick a 'vegetarian' box on the menu, keep that in mind! They staff were very nice and made me a new one immediately with just tofu. The curry was a delicious red coconut curry with lots of crunchy vegetables, large chucks of smoked tofu and peanuts on top. For dessert I had a coconut banana tapicoa pudding which I was assured was dairy-free and was also very nice. I also got a homemade lemonade with apple, ginger and mint was was very refreshing. A two course meal (main and dessert) with a large glass of homemade lemonade cost about €15. The main meal portion was quite big and the dessert portion was quite small. My overall impression was good although be sure to tick the vegetarian box on the menu or you will get meat and tofu!
