Food was ok but overpriced
Posted on 09 / 29 / 2013
It seems like all the other reviewers here managed to pick out the "reasonably priced" items, but unfortunately I did not. A veggie-tofu curry with rice served with plastic utensils on a paper plate at a generic cafe for $16 was laughable. To be fair, it was a decent dish - the sauce was flavorful, pleasantly spicy, nice and thick with plenty of veggies and tofu, but the whole experience felt too casual, if not sloppy, for that price point. Besides, the tofu wasn't even prepared or seasoned. It was nothing more than plain soft tofu chopped up and thrown into the stew. Knocking a few dollars off would have been more reasonable... or at least make an effort and use a better type of tofu. A firmer variety would be more desirable.
Another thing I didn't quite get was their environmental attitude. On the one hand, they seemed pretty green - separating trash and posting a note reminding people to only get one water cup per person to reduce waste, but on the other hand, those cups were plastic and food was served with plastic utensils, which were anything but eco-friendly. So what exactly they were trying to do, I don't know.
I was checking out the desserts on my way out and was directed by the staff to the health food market right behind them for vegan options. I should've just eaten there instead because for the same price I could've gotten a nice wrap/salad and a drink plus dessert... Well, too late.
overpriced, cheap utensils & plates
