Respond to Review of Saramago Cafe Bar
Review: My friend and I had lunch here today expecting it to be pricey. We figured we'd check out the Centre for Contemporary Art and have lunch here. The atmosphere was lively and we were attended to by a friendly member of wait staff. There was such a range of tempting dishes that I found it hard to decide but eventually settled on a pizza with cherry tomatoes, capsicum and roast garlic. (It was a toss up between the roast garlic pizza and the artichoke pizza and the garlic won). There were also a number of pasta dishes I wish I could have tried. While I was excited about the menu, I have to say that the pizza was fine but nothing remarkable. It was in the trend of simple, minimalist pizzas and the highlight was the roasted garlic, which was delicious, but otherwise the pizza was unremarkable (and lacked vegan cheese). My friend ordered the roasted red pepper and sweetcorn chowder and told me it was very tasty and enjoyable. It was a pleasant surprise to find a vegan cafe inside a significant attraction such as the CCA and it impressed my friend (along with other places we tried) as to Glasgow's wide variety and high quality of vegan food establishments. As for the price, it was perfectly reasonable for a cafe (around six to eight pounds for a meal) and comparable to other places we ate in Glasgow. I would have loved to come back to check out some other dishes here.
