Respond to Review of Lentil As Anything - St. Kilda
by beer and veg
Review: It's a great concept, based around really ordinary food. We were seated to the back, which felt cramped and not nice. The front tables looked more inviting. My serving of curry was quite small, and absolutely lacking in flavour. It was essentially 5 chunks of pumpkin in juice. The partner had a lentil burger that was truly below par. The savoury pancake thing was the only thing with promise. Surprisingly, my espresso was fine, and the long black tasted okay. The place is not without its charms, but seems to trade more on an idea instead of good food. If I return, I will be better prepared to keep asking for more dishes until I am full. Had I paid $10 for this meal, I would have felt ripped off. The payment thing is interesting, but at the end of the night, it doesn't really matter how little or how much I paid if I walk away hungry and completely dissatisfied with the quality of the food.
