Respond to Review of Zakaim - Vegan Boutique
by Kalorienbombe

Review: The interior already makes you feel nice and homey. Its a total mish mash of different furniture, plates, cutlery... but in a good way. It's extremely hipster. The food is full of flavour. I went there twice and tried quite a few dishes. One dish I wasn't over the moon about was a mushroom dish with spring onion and lima bean puree - the mushrooms tasted burnt. Otherwise I recommend the smoked wheat with dates and nuts and the tomato soup with basmati rice. It's nice and fruity and the rice gives it some nice bite. The hand torn fries are also very good, though not for health-food enthusiasts. It would be great if you could get a smaller portion of them because if you want them as a side, you'd have to be at least two people to finish them. Two small thing I would criticize is 1) the lack of different textures in the dishes. Flavourwise everything is spot on but everything might seem a bit on the mushy side. You could eat every dish with a spoon. 2) The timing - All dishes on an order start getting prepared when the order comes in and that means there might be quite a big difference in time before dishes reach the table. It can be a bit of an offset, especially if there are only two people at a table and you have to jealously watch your partner eat on his/her own because he/she doesn't want the food to get cold. Dessert-wise I only tried the chocolate mousse which was very good. I just thought that the desserts seemed quite expensive. Otherwise the pricing seems fair. It is more of an expensive venue but it's worth it once in a while (not every restaurant has to be cheap)
