Uses MSG

Posted on 12 / 15 / 2011

Food is ok, but quite oily and I have just discovered they use MSG (ajinomoto) in their food.

Pros: Quick service, Pure Veg (no eggs)
Cons: MSG in the food

    Thanks a ton for letting everyone know about the MSG. Its sad when vegetarians restaurants use MSG they think its the only way to bring taste. You know that they are using cheap, low quality ingredients or could be serving you stale food. With MSG you cannot detect stale food.
    A self respecting chef would never use MSG
    And a responsible restaurant owner would not allow it. Its really bad for health

Plantain Leaf is my favourite restaurant in Goa, it is great for breakfast/brunch, with the masala dosa and a banana lassi or a poori bhaji. They do a very well priced thali at lunch, and many different curries as well from lunch to late from all over india. Their Bhaigan Bharta is a particular favourite of ours (smoky aubergine curry).

Pros: great value, pure veg, very clean
