Opciones veganas - Edit

Buen restaurante ubicado en el centro de Alicante, tiene opciones veganas, vegetarianas y celiacas, la carta es extensa y de calidad aunque las raciones son algo escasas. Tocan varias cocinas, como la india, mediterranea, americana.... despues puedes hacerte el te en la zona de teteria decorada arabe y con sofas. Volvere a repetir sin duda.

Pros: muchas opciones veganas, muchas opciones mixtas, ideal para ir con gente que sea vegana y no sea ve

Cons: raciones algo escasas

Falafel and soy dessert - Edit

I have been to Mish Mish a couple of times. The staff is friendly and they serve a lot of vegan options. Normally I go for the mezzes, but the last time I went I bought a menu. There was one vegan option as a main dish, a sort of vegetable kebab (veggies grilled on a stick). I have to say I was a bit dissapointed with the main dish and the salad that came with it was floating in apple vinegar, making it too sour. However, this place is perfect for mezze, it has the best falafel I ever tasted and they have a vegan soy dessert which was delicious.

Pros: Amazing falafel, Nice lemon dessert made of soy, Nice and friendly staff

Cons: main vegan dish

Wonderful tapas - Edit

Lots of vegan and vegetarian options, with a perfectly simple and easy to understand menu. All the dishes we tried were delicious and the staff were incredibly friendly. Would happily give it 5 stars, but 4 is the maximum available!

absolutely brilliant - Edit

All food on the menu labelled with a colour code to show whether it is vegan and vegetarian and also shows all the allergens. The food was absolutely delicious and there's something for everyone to enjoy - my meat eating friends also loved it. Great service and also had two delicious vegan desserts. Decent prices too. Hope to visit again some day :)

Pros: All food labelled, Loads of choice, Delicious food

Wonderful mezze restaurant - Edit

We feasted on 5 dishes here and all we're delicious. We had the falafel, musaka, pafrittas especiadas, Falafel, baba ganush, espinacas damasco - highly recommend. The menu was well set out and the vegan options clearly indicated. The restaurant was also very clean and had a beautiful interior.

Its a very cute restaurant in the old town in Alicante. I recommend you to go inside because its very well decorated.

Pros: Friendly staff, Tasty, Good price

Cons: Needs more vegan options

Very Good - Edit

Saw this on happycow and stopped in to try it while on our trip. The food is vegetarian friendly, and the space is really nice. Good find for this area if you are veg. Do tell them you are vegan so they can show you which dishes are or can be without yogurt.

Arabic restaurant - Edit

The place is some sort of a fancy arabic restaurant with many dips and starters, fresh salads, two soups and some mains. Also serves traditional arabic desserts, which of them two are vegan.

The food is really good and it is totally worth is price, which is not so much: 5€/soup, starter, salad and 10€/main.

Here come the downsides. First, there is only one vegan main dish - grilled vegetables. There are more options labelled as vegan, but contain yoghurt. In fact, fallafel which was about to be served with tahini sauce, came with yoghurt instead.

Pros: price, nice, really good salad

Cons: yoghurt

MishMishAlicante 07 Mar 2017 - Dear customer,

We would like to thank you for your review following your recent visit to our restaurant. We view all comments as an opportunity to improve all aspects of our service.

We are very happy to know that you liked the decoration of our restaurant and food and consider us good value for money.

It has been thanks to your comment that we've just finished implementing a foolproof way to ensure all our vegan customers aren't served any of our yoghurt dips and sauces.

In our menu we took care to label all of our dishes that could be made vegan by giving them a small red circle. Essentially the Lebanese cuisine showcases many vegan dishes known as Mezza and some main dishes as vegetarian because of it's yoghurt salad served separately on the side. As a result we change the yoghurt side salad for our pomegranate molasses side salad for all our vegan dishes. This is something that always takes place whenever the customer tell us they are vegan. However, we started to notice that when placing an order customers rightly assumed that if a dish had a vegan legend then it must be vegan and sometimes didn't feel the need to tell us they were vegan. As a result the order was placed a a standard order and not a vegan one.

To solve this, we changed the ordering software used by our waiters. Whenever a possible vegan dish is ordered by a customer our waiter is prompted to ask our customer if that dish is being ordered as vegetarian or vegan. The order cannot be released to the kitchen unless a specific choice is made. Our vegan falafel is served with tahini sauce without yoghurt.

As we stand, we currently have 23 vegan dishes on our menu, with the majority of options available in our Mezza starters section of the menu. Our vegan customers usually order several starters/Mezza in truly Lebanese style. Admittedly we only have 2 mains and 2 desserts but I can assure you that we've already started working on improving on the variety of our vegan choices and we'll soon be introducing other main dishes to our menu.

We would like to take this opportunity to both thank you for your valued feedback and to apologise for our shortcomings. We hope that you can give us another opportunity to show you that one can have a very good vegan culinary experience at our place.

Maria & Mish Mish Family
