Great place in Condado Beach
Posted on 03 / 31 / 2012
We were staying at La Concha and really pleased to find this place next door to our hotel. After one lunch, we were hooked and came back each of our 3 days.
I highly recommend the Falafel Salad. Instead of traditional balls, they serve it as a thin, fried cutlet serves over a bed of salad, with a hummus/tahini dip and a balsamic dressing on the side. They also serve it with candied walnuts, which made the whole thing that much more delicious.
The last day, we opted for their traditional "Teriyaki Chicken Wrap" but asked them to substitute the dead bird flesh for their tofu-based mock-meat. It seemed the throw them-- I guess they don't get many requests to change things. Still, they did it and it was a spectacular lunch wrap which held away our hunger for hours.
There is an exhaustive list of juices and smoothies, as well. All of them can be made vegan by using soymilk, though there is no alternative available for those looking to go soy free (which, thankfully, was not an issue for us!)
The hours (11-7) really restrict this place to being a lunch spot (or, an early-bird dinner joint.) The service was friendly always, and the speed of service seems to be directly proportional to the number of patrons there. It seemed on all 3 days that there is just one chef in the kitchen, so the more customers, the longer the wait. Still, the food is so healthy and delicious, it's a godsend for vegans staying in Condado beach.
