How to Approach Restaurants -Advice Needed
Posted by VeganSally at 08/15/2011
There are a number of restaurants in my area that are so close to being good, if they would only offer more vegan options (soy milk, soy sausage, Daiya cheese, etc). Have you ever approached a restaurant and asked for more vegan menu items? How did u do it? What do you say? How were you received? Any tips are greatly appreciated.
I would dine at restaurants that were all into organic food, cage free eggs, and eco-friendly awareness, that you would think would be more sympathetic to Veggie-friendly request, whom would not budge to vegans after many request. If the restaurants didn't oblige to vegan request after having years of my business, they simply lost my patronage, simple as that. What else could I do? compromise my diet?
Not to make this too long, but strict vegans have to be careful of omnivore restaurants because there are so many hidden animal products in restaurant food that doesn't specifically cater to Veggie people, even cross-contamination, and animal bone-char laden sweeteners.
Honestly, the best thing to do is stick to Veggie friendly spots or learn to make your fav recipes from those restaurants at home and hope your favorite spots one day come around. (shrug..)
