Respond to Review of Our Place
by Vegan Jonathan
Review: Just back (summer 2009) from a visit to Our Place. Yusuuf makes lovely home made food, quite a contrast to the nearby high street. He spoke perfect English (he teaches it locally having married an English woman) and was patient as he answered all my questions on the area and culture. He eats meat and there was a single meat dish but he understood and catered for my vegan requirements from the menu and without fuss (or prior warning). There is an outdoor bar and pool, there was wireless internet the night we went and I recommend it highly, even if my wife thought it was all a bit hippyish! I asked him why there were no doors or locks or security and he replied that it is "our place" and if you steal from our place you are stealing from yourself. It's a grand philosphy and summed the place up nicely for me. Charming.
