Respond to Review of Pure and Whole - JingAn
Review: Kush is the best Vegetarian restaurant in Shanghai; I have visited it over and over again when I still lived there. Every friend I took there was delighted and they told me they would return. Once I even met a carnivore friend who lives in the neighborhood and eats at Kush quite often as he loves it. My favorites? Difficult to say: Spicy Tofu Burger and Lentil Burger are simply yummy. And the bun is edible! I am picky when it comes to bread, but these buns are just wonderful. I never really could make up my mind which of the wraps is the best. My solution: order half a Caprese and half an Island Wrap. They both come beautifully arranged on a bed of salad greens. If you go for half a portion they only give you half the wrap, but the full size salad greens, yeah! The Raw Power Salad is just divine, I did not know that you could use coconut oil for salad dressings, and now I have started using it at home, too. And after reading Bruce Fife's "The Coconut Oil Miracle" I was even more impressed that a restaurant makes the effort to use the oil which is best for you in at least one of its dishes. Not to mention the lovely taste. Portions are quite big, so I had to learn to share with a friend or just go for half sizes. After eating at Kush I always felt like my body was recharged again with energy as well as had refueled on vitamins and minerals. And that is what eating is about: refueling your body to nurture it, food should be wholesome to make sure you stay vibrant and healthy. But this alone would not get you far, you also need the good taste. I have read some not so good posts and I am always wondering why that is. Whenever I went to Kush I made the right choices and I love this place. Or did I make the right choices BECAUSE I love this place ;-) "As within so without"
