Respond to Review of Sipz Fusion Cafe - North Park
Review: I had read about this place on happycow and ate here in June 2012. Here's my Sipz Fusion review. Some years back I had visited their first location in San Diego Clairmont Mesa area. This time I was in the North Park district and decided to try this Sipz. It's located in a busy commerical section that also houses 2 other veg restaurants and 1 veg-friendly Mexican place right next door. The inside is simply laid out with dark furniture, and natural sunlight comes through the tall front windows. The menu is quite extensive with all kinds of Asian style rice and noodle dishes, appetizers, and soups. There is also a vegan sushi menu but it wasn't being offered until starting 5pm and we were there for lunch. We shared an iced green tea with boba (tapioca balls), a Vietnamese style appetizer rice rolls, and the Japanese fire noodles (medium spicy). The food tasted okay but was not totally authentic but more like made-for-Americans taste. The noodles could have been called "Chinese" or "Thai" and it would have been the same. Everything is supposed to vegan except for a noted dish containing vege shrimp. At the front of the restaurant is a glass case displaying their in-house vegan baked goods made at their other location. From the selection I got a vegan peanut brownie and it was very yummy. Overall, a good place to meet up with friends or have a casual bite alone that's all veggie.
