Respond to Review of Eden's Vegetarian Dining and Catering
Review: On the long road from Boston to Hilton Head, we're passing through Smithfield and need lunch. Okay, we'd carried an old listing of vegetarian restaurants in the car trunk, remembered someplace in Smithfield, NC ... had to ask around a bit, locals not too certain it was still there. But lo' and behold, it is. And it's worth it. What a delightful surprise! Alex is exactly as others describe him, and so's his food. Normally I'm not a great fan of gluten shaped into meat substitutes: but his "ribs" were remarkable! The corn bread: smashing. The saffron rice and veggies: happy-making. The menu didn't seem germane: he seated us and told us what he was serving. Worked for us, may not for you. But I hope it does. It's worth a detour or a stop just to sample this guy's work, holed up in a small town and making food better than many of us in larger cities don't get to taste very often.
