Review: My first experience with Aqui was at their Campbell restaurant. The food was kind of the norm for Cal-Mex and I wasn't especially impressed. It was good, but it wasn't outstanding. Recently I went to the Cupertino restaurant with a friend, and the food is still pretty good, but leaves much to be desired for vegans. I have a feeling I'd have a much a better impression if I were lacto-ovo vegetarian, and much better options. Otherwise, you're pretty much stuck with a salad or appetizers. My friend, of course, was pleased because he's omni. What *is* really cool is Aqui does designate the vegan dishes/ingredients on their website, the down-side is that the selection of vegan dishes are incredibly sparse, though I'm sure you could have some of the vegetarian dishes modified to your specifications to remedy this? Maybe?
