Re: “Bolat African Cuisine

While this restaurant might be an enticing choice for meat eaters, I was thouroughly unimpressed with the lack of vegetarian entrees. What made my dining experience more offensive was the fact that my waiter specifically pointed out "vegetarian" options on the menu, only for me to find a few bites in that my choice in fact contained fish (and a good bit of it). I ate the white rice from my dining partner's plate, as there was nothing more substantive on the menu that didn't contain animal products.

I don't know where the person that rated Bolat for the reader got the information about there being "many meatless dishes full of unusual ingredients"--perhaps he or she spoke with the same waiter that I did, or perhaps the meatlessness was inferred from the vague descriptions of dishes on the menu. I know that I, and at least one other party there that evening, attempted to dine there specifically because Bolat was portrayed as being vegetarian friendly by its Reader rater, which made for an unpleasant and awkward experience for both us and the waitstaff.
