Respond to Review of Vishnu - Ave 1
by Sarah P
Review: I ate at two different locations today. First I had the gallo pinto plate at the Avenida 1 location. It was delicios and huge, and the service was very fast. The arroz integral in the gallo pinto was very welcome after a white rice dominance for the duration of my stay. The gallo pinto was also very tasty, and came with toast, soy ham (which was not to my taste but which I ate with gusto to have a full vegan plate). Also included was a salad, which I had to send back to have the dressing removed even though the server assurred me there was no mayonnaise in it. Lastly included was the drink of the day- pineppla fresca, which was also tasty. The whole plate was 2,200 colones. Overall it was easy to order a vegan meal despite the presence of cheese on the menu, especially since I craved something with rice and beans rather than spaghetti or lasagna. After walking for a couple of hours at which point I was ready for more, I went to the Avenida 3 location and ate the epequeñae soy ice cream with fruit salad. It was ginormous, truly the biggest ice cream dish I have ever eaten, but it was so worth it. People at both locations explained to me that all milk, ice cream and yogurt products can be of soy and completely without animal milk, and so milkshakes and such are possible. The ice cream cost 2,300 colones, and it was definitely enough for 2 people or as a full meal. I was not sick in the slightest bit after eating the ice cream, and even after consuming such a large portion, so I am confident that it was in fact 100% vegan as stated.
