Respond to Review of Kombuse
by Arif

Review: After hearing about Komb├╝se from friends for nearly two years, I finally got to try it myself. It's a very pleasant atmosphere but with limited seating, so it can fill up quickly. One sees the efforts of the kitchen to be creative within the scope of a rather narrow food offering, and while many of those efforts are promising, some fall short. I ordered the soup of the day, potato-eggplant, and the special plate of the day, creole-style braised vegetables with potato-spinach cakes. The soup had a really delicious and delicate flavor (which inspired me to try making it at home sometime) which was unfortunately overpowered by way too much chili. The creole vegetables were quite good, except for being a bit too heavily weighted with paprika, but still in search of exquisiteness. Unfortunately, the sauce also contained seitan, which I can't eat. They could have written that on the specials board and I would have ordered something else (which I told them), and they probably would have taken it back if I had asked, but since it was there, I elected to pick out the seitan and eat the dish anyway, which I don't regret. The potato-spinach cakes, however, were unremarkable. On the plus side though, my meal was served piping hot. My companion had the black-bean burger with everything and was quite pleased. I tried the burger and found it interesting, but again, not execptional. The salad and potatoes which can be ordered as side dishes were both tasty, in particular the salad dressing, and the portions were both generous.
