When a restaurant compliments itself in their NAME, they’d better live up to it. You can’t make a claim like that if you actually suck. It’s like saying “Bob’s Best Burgers” and the burgers taste like dry corkboard (yes, I realize by nature corkboard is dry), or “Bueno Anti Pasti” and it’s not so bueno, after all.
Thankfully, that is not the case with Siggy’s. I’m glad they didn’t take advantage of their “good” name (get it?).
What I also appreciate about Siggy’s is that they strive to be organic as much as possible — but what’s strange is that they say the below on their website:
“WE USE ONLY CLEAN, PURE, ORGANIC products. If it is not USDA Certified Organic, you can be sure it is SIGGY’S Certified for Clean Pure and Real food.”
…which I really don’t get the meaning of. So not only already claim your food’s good, but now you make up your own certification? How presumptuous!
Just a note that this establishment is vegan-friendly: they do serve meat.
Siggy’s is the type of place you’d feel fine bringing either a date or a group of friends for a get-together. Warm, muted lighting, quirky alien-themed décor and wood furniture make it quite welcoming and puts me instantly at ease.
I also love the wall art in the bathroom. Nothing gets you pooping like readable decorations!
Every server at Siggy’s is super friendly, helpful on menu suggestions and attentive. Plus, our waiter was absolutely adorable, which always helps. A little eye candy dessert during dinner is a welcome asset!
I did have to wait a half hour for my food to arrive after I got my smoothie, which was insane considering they weren’t that busy in the first place.
Spa Skin Secret Smoothie:
I had a honey-less version of this yummy, refreshing smoothie that tasted a bit like a sorbet/milkshake hybrid. Not sure whether it actually helps with skin issues or not, but I did feel fuller and more satisfied till my food arrived a half hour later (insane wait, by the way).
Eggplant Veggie and Tofu Lasagna:
Saucy, rich and filling — those are three appropriate adjectives to describe Siggy’s veggie lasagna. The plate comes completely covered with a rich, sweet tomato sauce, so I’d recommend getting some complimentary bread slices (that came with a dish of olive oil!) to soak up all that yummy goodness. The tofu ricotta is decently textured: not the most amazing ricotta, but pretty tasty. The eggplant lasagna layers didn’t overpoweringly taste like eggplant, and I barely noticed it didn’t have pasta in it.
I did want to sprinkle vegan parm on my lasagna, but for some reason the waiter (not the cute one) told me they don’t have it, even though they had it the last time I came here. Lame!
One line rhyme-ary: Siggy’s “Good” Food put me in a good mood, though their organic criteria gave me diphtheria.
