Respond to Review of Yerbabuena
by estefinparis

Review: While visiting friends in Madrid I convinced them to try out Yerbabuena, having read an excellent review on VegNews. Our experience was nothing like the one described in the magazine, in fact I thought the food was pretty average. The menu proposed what sounded like delicious and innovative dishes (the website does a very good job at suggesting that too) but the food didn't live up to those expectations. The tofu and seitan foie had the texture of gum, the boulgur salad was mrerely ok... Even the gazpacho, so easy to get right and perfectly vegan in its basic recipe, had been amended to include what I believe was "pimentón" (paprika) - leaving me wishing for the real thing. I definitely think Isla del Tesoro is much better, not only from a culinary standpoint, also in terms of service and decor. I was actually really surprised VegNews didn't include it in their article about Madrid...
