Respond to Review of The Vegetarian Kitchen
Review: I walked past this place several times over the Christmas/New Year period 2012/13 before finally finding it open and getting the chance to go on my last day in Quezon City. The roller door had been concealing a courtyard at the front, which was cute, but my partner and I sat inside where it was cooler. The menu seemed interesting enough, with a few vegan options clearly marked (except I had to query a supposedly vegan meal with buttered rice: turned out they could make it vegan) and Filipino dishes. The kitchen and counter are a fair distance from the tables, so I had to get up and walk over to the counter and wait for somebody to come out of the kitchen (which could be a while)or call out before I could ask for something. There's an interesting array of fruity cold and hot drinks and organic coffee. The food was all right, but really just what I'd expect from mock meat: I ordered the "Korean spare ribs". Our drinks were refreshing and afterwards I had to order the carrot cake with "butter" sauce (the only dessert at the time). Very nice but so much sweet sauce I didn't know what to do with it. I'd certainly go back to sample more menu items but alas it was my last day there.
