Great Passion, Lack of Cleanliness
Posted on 02 / 18 / 2014
I was excited to visit, my mom has taken classes on vegan cooking from the owner, who she says is very nice. We unfortunately had a negative experience, which I'll get to in a minute.
The menu was typical vegan loving hut menu, they had chow mein, fried rice, and soy meat remakes for traditional chinese food. They were cooking with a lot of oil, so this may not be the best choice for vegans who eat low oil. They had a few desserts like flan, cheesecake, and ice cream. When we were there, they were out of the cheesecake, ice cream, and five other menu options. They also had a locked fridge where they sold soy meats. For atmosphere, they had a giant chess board and a checkers set. You can tell the owner is passionate about veganism from his brightly colored car in the back, the the pro vegan signage around the restaurant.
When I asked for the restroom key the owner shrugged towards me and said it was, "right there". I looked around, couldn't find it. Looked all of the the front of the counter, the areas around it, and on the walls. I asked again and he turned around and shouted that it was "right in front of my face". He was kind of acting way too busy, since we were the only people there except for one other couple. =/ I had to ask him again,, and he turned around in a huff and pointed towards the key without saying anything. It was actually behind the corner of a wall, so that really wasn't in front of my face, but whatever. I'm a polite person who doesn't enjoy being yelled at, so I thanked him and went to the restroom.
The restroom was so gross that I couldn't use it. So gross, that I feel queasy thinking about it. They had just opened after having been closed on Sunday, so my guess is that it had been left that way since Saturday. I was so disgusted, that we left without eating. To be fair, the owner was nice and gave us our money back, which we didn't expect him to do. He offered to clean the restrooms, but with the way the restroom looked, it would have taken a long time and the idea of him making our food after cleaning that area was not appetizing. So yeah, maybe he was having an off week. Owning a business is tough. I feel for him, but I won't be going there ever again, as it makes me ill to think of it. =/
