Respond to Review of Makro Vega
by Michelle Stoddart
Review: After spending 7 days on the island of Brac (limited vegan options: salad, pizza, pasta) I was really pleased to get to Split to go to Makro Veg. The location is quite cool, a little out of the centre but easy enough to find when you have a map. The decor is lovely, minimal and modern - very nice and very clean. The service was friendly, we went for the daily menu at their suggestion. It's a lot of food at a very reasonable price, very nicely presented too. Nice, wholesome food with lots of great elements and lots of variation on the plate. I was so pleased to have some tofu, tempeh, beans after a week of no protein! However, the food wasn't very hot (maybe there's a macrobiotic element to the restaurant?) and I found it was lacking in flavour. I like a lot of chili, spice, garlic etc.. and was hoping to get this at Makro Vega so I was a little disappointed. Saying that, no other meals in Croatia had much garlic, spice either. My boyfriend isn't vegetarian and he noticed the same thing for all is meat, fish dishes so maybe that's the norm for Croatia. I would go back to Makro Vega again but would try something else on the menu in hopes of getting a little more flavour. Nice find in Split.
