Respond to Review of Heartland's Market and Kitchen
Review: Fabulous Chinese vegan place! Lunch is about $6 and includes soup, rice or noodles, a main dish box and a dessert, usually a candy or cookie. Water pitchers are available or you can order hot tea. The food is ready to go and you can choose one item or do the whole lunch. The 5 grain rice is the best rice I have ever tasted! You can take it to go or sit down at a table. I have gone 4 times and have never been disappointed. The lunch will vary depending on the day, so you don't have a choice of what is served, but it is always fresh and delicious. The store items are decently priced and I often get my Braggs products there because it is the cheapest place I have seen them. There is a variety of scoop-able grains and legumes, a refrigerated and frozen section, Asian produce and dry and canned good items as well as beauty supplies. Staff is extremely friendly and I even got a fabulous recipe from a lady who works there. She personally took me around the store and showed me items used in her traditional cooking style and explained how to make the dish I wanted to try. If you like any of the food you eat at lunch it is also available for you to purchase and make yourself. Be careful because some of the sweets they have in stock are brought in from other companies and may contain butter or milk, so ask if you are not sure. This is the place to shop if you are looking for specific Asian sauces and products that are normally not vegan. This is my new favorite place!
