Respond to Review of The Veggie Grill - Carlsbad
by Gyan Penrose-Kafka
Review: I've been there once and that was enough for me. Fried foods, whether they're fried in "healthy" oils or not, are still fried foods. The majority of the menu seems oriented towards people who want fast/junk/flavorless food with things like burgers, fries, etc. They do offer some less unhealthy options (I got the Gluten Free Power Plate - some tempeh and portobello mushrooms - it was OK, but mostly without flavor or distinction. The atmosphere was very corporate - no real warmth, lots of orange colors (which is used in a lot of fast food places because it seems to get people to leave quicker, thereby freeing up table space). I guess I'd have to say this is like a vegan version of Denny's.
