Respond to Review of The Magic Apple
Review: (January 2008) The food resembles what you'd see in other alternative cafes or Hare Krishna restaurants. A counter meal/combo plate of beans, dahl, felafel etc from under the hot lights costs $18. When I went there, the beans were undercooked, and had rankled slightly. It was also quite bland, not much in the way of spices or seasoning - Im sure I could have cooked much better myself. To be fair, the desserts are much better - there is a large selection of cakes there and they are all very tasty and impressive. Then again, at about $7- $8 a slice or $50 for a whole cake, they'd better be. Whether you get anything out of the Ravi Shankar quotes and new-age dedications covering the wall (the *whole* wall, mind) is up to you, I didnt care one way or the other.
