Respond to Review of CLOSED: Pura Vida Bakery and Bystro
Review: here it is, i'm sure a few have been waiting for a vegan restaurant in Vegas, and it's here even if it is stuck in the back alley of the flashy Sin city. it's very easy to find once you know where you going and it actually gives a nice vibe of the true Vegas, hidden from the major tours eye. Once in, the place looks small, gives the feel of old dinner kitchen with REALLY white walls:) but it's obviously clean, which matter the most after all. i like the few personal touches and attempts of creative design but i just can't get away of how white everything is... needless to say the focus is on the food. the menu was very small for the day, which can be discouraging to some, but would never stop an adventurous vegan. usually only one entree can speak louder than 20 and thats what these dishes do! they were rich and flavorful, combining the right about of spice and sweetness, with perfectly prepared mock meats! i wander where they get the spicy sausage from? i should have asked if its made there. i never liked plantains and the way those were prepared went great with the empanadas! the staff is very friendly and one can tell the passion they have for this place! once you get to talk to the chef you can tell where all the rich flavors come from, she seems as charismatic as her dishes. i can't wait for another trip though the back alley, because now i know what i can find.
