Interesting space, great food, issue resolved
Posted on 11 / 17 / 2013
So, first thing's first: just got back from here and had some delicious chorisoya tacos. The space is relaxed, central, and unique, with a chilled ambiance and independent feel; it's locally owned as well, not especially common for establishments in the center.
Regarding the previous poster: thanks for uncovering this. I had a lengthy discussion with both the manager and the owner, who was personally very surprised that this had happened and promised me that the vegetarian section of the menu would be changed immediately. After doing some research on this "Guten" stuff (which sounds suspiciously like "gluten"), I realized that it is a source of confusion for many people and other restaurants within the country. Yes, it is a processed "meat alternative" product, but it does contain meat. In any case, they are now aware of the issue and are acting to fix it.
Like Michael, I also highly recommend supporting this arty, independent place. The previous poster was right to be disappointed, but the business moved to fix it as soon as they were made fully aware, and the place deserves a second chance as a Mérida "vegetarian oasis."
