Review: I have the recipe book and a lot of items contain honey. The waitstaff didn't seem to know which items contained honey. I also don't eat soy so no Nama Shoyu, liquid aminos or miso for me. Again, blank looks from the staff. The restaurant is commonly referred to as being raw vegan but because of the honey is not. I went down the street to RFD for some truly vegan food.
Funny I found Real Food Daily's food to be bland and definitely soy. Most "vegans" I eat (and many raw foodists who eat no dairy meat eggs and only eat 100% raw) still eat honey. Juliano explains in a little pamphlet there why they use the honey candles and to me (even though I eat honey) which foods had honey in them. Sorry it was not a good experience for you (It wasn't for me but for other reasons) but still WAY better than RFD.

I think honey is a personal choice that some vegans choose to eat. Also, it's hard at Juliano's to know much about the food when you first start working there, there is no training, so if you are new to raw foods it takes a little while in order to be able to help people without asking the kitchen(and even harder if you don't speak Spanish.) I think nama shoyu is the only soy product used in the restaurant.
