You'll have to watch animal abuse videos!!
Posted on 06 / 17 / 2009
My vegan partner and I went there tonight, SO excited that a new vegan restaurant had opened in San Diego. Soon after we ordered we realized they were showing videos of horrific animal abuse on two huge wall mounted TVs. I'm talking cutting up live cattle, and other stuff I won't mention. It was surreal!! We jumped up and told the staff we couldn't bear to watch the images. They were apologetic, and one worker said "We don't usually have this video on at this time" whatever that means!
Anyway, we took our food to go. I'm sorry to say it wasn't very good. Perhaps after the restaurant has been opened longer the food quality will improve. The workers were nice and insisted on giving us free dessert to make up for our horror, so I won't comment on the dessert's quality.
On the other hand, the restaurant staff seemed really friendly and seemed genuinely apologetic for the offense we took at having gruesome animal abuse videos playing as we dined, though also a little surprised that we were offended. The restrooms and dining area looked very clean.
It was beyond bizarre--how could the operators of a vegan restaurant possibly think that its patrons want to watch graphic scenes of animal abuse while they eat?
Friendly staff, Clean, Good portions
animal abuse videos, food wasn't good
