Respond to Review of CLOSED: Dandelion and Burdock
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.

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.
