GustOrganics…bit of disappointment

Quinoa Balance

Quinoa Balance

I used to like this restaurant. They are not vegetarian or vegan, but had enough choices for us, vegans, and servers were cool and music was soft and jazzy. I haven’t been here for a while, then, this time, they disappointed me. Quinoa Balance should be better than this for $17. Everything was edible, but I want my food to be better than edible.
