Respond to Review of The Wandering Buddha - Pop-up
Review: My boyfriend and I were on holliday in New Orleans, and found this place on Happy Cow. New Orleans isn't an easy place to eat for a vegan, so we decided to try it out. It's a little out of a tourit's way, but after a good walk we arrived at the adress. First of all, it's hard to find because it's in this strang bar. When we walked in, we felt like turning back and leaving: the bar was nearly empty, and very strangely decorated. The place needed some fresh air, and smelt like it hadn't had any in a while. The restaurant is in fact a couple of tables in the bar. Never the less, we stayed, having walked all this way. The waiter, who is also the cook I think, came to take our orders. He was very friendly and enthousiastic. We both ordered a dish, and soon the smell of cooking food drowned out a little the dusty smell of the room. My dish (the rice cake dish) was quite nice, although there was a little too much sauce. However my boyfriend's dish (the tofu dish) was salty - and we both tend to put too much salt on our dishes normally! Finally, I'd say that the fact the bartender was washing Scareface just next to us while we were eating didn't help - specially since my dish came just as the chainsaw scene started, not very appertizing. I appreciated the cook's enthousiasm, but he needs to find a real room, and cut back on the salt.
