El Paisano, Banos
Posted on 01 / 14 / 2013
More than half the items on the menu are vegetarian. The 1st vegetarian menu, (ie not the vego pizza and not the vego omelete menus), everything is vegan. There's a lot of pizzas in there as well as a lot of soups and omelettes. The guy who works there is nice, un assuming and quite softly spoken.
Banos is a small town and I don't know if its because the competition for the vego market is fierce, but he said to me that as of 29 Feb 2013 they will stop doing food and be an art gallery only. The location is 5 mins further out of the middle of town than the likes of casa Hood. Its only a few mins walk round the corner from one of the thermal baths (the thermal bath that is open in the day time and the evening as opposed to the one that is open day time only.
Its a real shame its closing as I had dinner tonight it was quite delicious. I had the vego plato which was this thing I don't know what it was, it was like a couple of slices of a massive cucumber / courgette type thing but tasted different to both of those. It was cooked in sesame seeds and was great. It was served with casseroled green lentil, diced fried potato, cauliflower and a pleasantly dressed salad. For a starter i'd had the vegetable soup which was like a meal in itself. Add in a freshly squeezed pineapple juice and it came to 8 bucks.
Very enjoyable and if it was 100% I'd defo rate it at least a 4, maybe higher as this was top food I've just had. And by a lovely bloke.
Vegan friendly, tasty, inexpensive
Not 100% vego
