Respond to Review of Yerbabuena
Review: Open 13:30-16:00 and 20:00-00:00 We visited six vegetarian restaurants in Madrid and this was, by far, by leaps and bounds the VERY, VERY best. Sadly this was the last place we ate but if it had been the first, we probably would not have gone anywhere else. This is first-class, delicious food served with flair. My companion and I both had different items from the Menu Del Dia (for 12 Euro). The chef is a master of texture, colour, and flavour. Presentation of the food was perfect. We could not each have our own dessert and had to split one because the other courses were so filling. The meal was started with bread and a little dish each of fresh hummus. It was capped off with a very rich, delicious-smelling tea. From start to finish it was simply, purely a delight. The decor was different and much nicer than any other place we visited. It was bright, sunny, clean, and cheery. Music was Spanish and well-chosen. Great, easy-to-find location. English menus available (except for the set menu). If I went back to Madrid, I would only eat here and at Maoz (for a light meal). I wish the proprietors of Yerbabuena a very, very long and fruitful career in the vegetarian restaurant business.
