As stated in a previous review I visit the Sprout every time I am in St Johns. My last visit in July was less than satisfactory, but I wanted to give them one more chance as they used to be so good! I was there this past week and I have to say, I officially give up on the Sprout. The service was marginally better than last visit, but considering this was one of our most expensive vegan meals in the city, the food was actually pathetic.
My husband had the soup of the day which was adequate, but his water came with a thick white dog hair attached. I had the daily special which was a portobello taco with black bean spread. It was one of the worst things I've attempted to eat, and considering I have eaten vegan food in 50+ countries, that's saying something. It was nicely presented and the salsa was good, but the portobellos seemed to be marinated in something sour/acidic which completely overpowered the dish and left a terrible aftertaste. I couldn't even eat half of it, which my husband commented 'never happens' as I take my eating very seriously.
After 7 years of faithful visits, I won't be returning.
