Respond to Review of Red Velvet Cafe - Sahara
Review: During our recent vacation to Las Vegas, we ate at Red Velvet Cafe. I ordered the vegan chicken soft tacos, and my wife had the vegan ravioli. When my tacos came, the first thing I noticed was the "vegan" cheese. I opened the taco, and too my amazement, the cheese stretched all the way across the taco. As someone who eats a lot of vegan cheese, I have never encountered a vegan cheese that stretches six inches. So, I asked the owner what brand it was. He said that it was homemade. I asked what was in it. He said soy. I asked what specifically was in it to make it stretch. He said it was a secret recipe. A few years back, I had the same exact conversation with the owners of Gianna's Grille in Philly, who claimed to make their own vegan cheese (which was also super stretchy). It turned out that Gianna's lied about their cheese and were actually using non-vegan cheese (they are scumbags). So, I am very skeptical of a person who claims to make homemade vegan cheese, especially when it stretches and stays together when heated. So, i didn't get anywhere with the owner. He went back to the kitchen, so I asked the woman working the counter the same question. She said, "I'm under contract and can't tell you the ingredients." Since I wasn't getting anywhere, we ate around the cheese and paid the bill then left. So here's my take. The owner doesn't make vegan cheese. Since they won't disclose the ingredients, and they also serve meat and dairy, they are lying about the vegan cheese. I have come to realize that there are people in this world who will prey on other people just to make a buck. Do not support this restaurant.

Maybe you should stay at at hotel with a kitchenette if you don't trust other people to make your food.
