Respond to Review of Eden's Vegetarian Dining and Catering
Review: I called the restaurant on the Friday before Father's Day. Chef Alex is just as pleasant and kind in person as he is on the phone. Smithfield is about 30+minutes from our home in Raleigh, so we thought. Chef Alex pointed out a short cut to our home accompanied with scenary. That's how cool he is. Now to the food. The salad with house dressing was just ridiculously AWESOME! the foccacia bread that accompanied our salad was so tasty. We were offered another slice and readily accepted. My husband is originally from the south (NC) and I'm from Oakland, CA (the bay area). He's a big meat eater, and has been putting up with my new vegan lifestyle. Thanks to Alex's cooking, he's considering becoming more vegetarian. My hubby ordered the vegetarian lasagne with string bean casserole. His first bite of the lasagne and he was amazed. I ordered the vegan barbeque ribs with rice n' peas and broccoli n' carrots. My hubby kept taking meat off my plate and asking over and over again, "that's not meat?" Chef Alex's food prep is awesome and you can tell that he enjoys what he's doing. God's blessings to him and his family as he continues to prepare healthy foods for us all. We have vowed to returned at least once a month. Lastly, the food was inexpensive. You spend more money at Applebee's, Fridays, etc. not including the extra time to the gym and poor health. We can all help the health care system by treating ourselves to fine dining like Eden's Vegetarian Dining and Catering.
