Respond to Review of CLOSED: Dandelion and Burdock
by ml3369

Review: We've driven past this place a few times and it looks lovely so decided to go for Sunday lunch. It was virtually empty but the service was nonetheless very poor - slow to stop. Also do note this is a VEGAN place - which means no milk with a coffee even if you want it. That should be fine except that just about everything is Tofu based. Very unimaginative - for me this is the sort of food that gives vegetarianism/veganism a bad name. When the plates eventually arrived, one breakfast was cold, the toast on the other was soggy from sitting in some sauce on the plate. Food was tasteless and, well, tofu. Wouldn't go again. There's a tapas place a couple of miles up the main (oldham) road towards the motorway called El Gato Negro - this isn't Vegetarian but has plenty of vegetarian options including Syrian Lentils (vegan) which are stunning so I advise you go there instead.

Bit of an odd review. This is a vegan place, so of course there's no dairy milk, (as dairy milk is a particularly abusive part of the meat industry, no animal lover should touch it)but there's good soya for lovely hot chocs and coffees. There's also a huge range of vegan soft drinks, spirits, wines and beers.
There's some tofu on the menu, but very little, and it's delicious. El Gato isn't very good for vegans at all, and really IS unimaginative. Lentils? Got a cupboard full, thanks.

I agree this is an odd review; as a regular visitor here I have never seen more than one tofu based main dish on the menu, often none at all. Tofu cheesecake crops up now and again in various flavours along with lots of other choices. Most of the food is freshly prepared as you wait so it can sometimes be a 'leisurely experience' but usually service is very good. Its a great place where you can take your friends veggie or not and the food is always impressive

This is the funniest review of a vegan restaurant I have ever seen. How dare they not give you milk, and how dare they have tofu on the menu.
