Respond to Review of Halet Rawfood
Review: First let's set things straight. This place most definitely is NOT vegan, nor vegetarian for that matter. Being a LOHAS raw food restaurant we casually assumed it would be (and Happycow says it is), so we ordered a soba noodle set (it was -9 degrees outside) and some sushi. The sushi was ok although the 'rice' was made of nuts and honestly, I can't imagine how they think that is healthier than rice, enzymes regardless. The nuts by the way are from China and are not organic. They sell them by the bag near the doorway. For drinks we had the green smoothie which consisted of a whole lot of banana (in mid winter) and a few greens for colour. The main problem was when the noodles came. Shortly after we launched in we started to feel something was not right. Indeed. The main ingredient was chicken - you can imagine our surprise! When we sent it back to be replaced we were charged for the mistake which apparently was our fault. No mention anywhere in the restaurant is vegan I guess so in a way they were right, although who on earth makes a raw food restaurant that sells cooked meals and meat!? They clearly aren't sure what they want to be. The replacement noodles tasted ok but nothing special. There was nothing else on the menu that really looked to be a seriously nutritional and substantial meal idea. Couldn't think of any reason to come back really.
