The food – OMG!!! I’ve dined in Michelin starred restaurants that were a joke compared to this culinary taste sensation, LOVED it!!!
Best food I’ve ever had . . . ever – dangerously delicious!
My pallet is inspired and my eyes have opened to what can be done in the kitchen.
I did NOT miss meat for 1 minute. Food is fantastic!
This food is the best vegetarian food I’ve ever had. Usually my body and mind crave meat after not having it for a couple of days. But now, when I’m about to leave, I only want more of this delicious food I’ve been eating.
