Respond to Review of CLOSED: Java Green
Review: Sigh...another wasted trip to try this place. I really read the reviews, and each one was raving about this place, so I thought I'd really enjoy it. No, I did not. There was a heavy grease smell in the air, so now my clothing and coat reek of it. No bathrooms here, so you have to exit the restaurant, and use the bathroom in the basement. OK, I was told by the cashier that the most frequent item people had was the "chicken java", which was put into a panini style sandwich with vegan cheese, roasted red pepper, fake chicken meat (it was sooooo tough, it was difficult to actually swallow), and to ruin it, it was flavored in a hot chili sauce. I am not a spicy food eater, so I was really disappointed. But even if I had ordered it plain, it would still be tough and chewy. So, I spent $31 in cab fare to try the place out. Very limited seating, I sat facing the window, wishing I had gone somewhere else. Maybe this would have been fine if I was already in the area, but it really was a take-out kind of place. Is there any way that Happy Cow can separate those restaurants that are sit-down, waiter served experiences, to the sandwich fast-food palaces? I hope I spare one innocent person from making the trip there. At least both my Ethiopian cab drivers made up for it in personality.
