Respond to Review of Quan Yin
Review: Maybe I am wrong, but to me a vegan is not only a person who avoids eating all animal products, but also a person who wants to eat healthy. Since meat, dairy and oil are now known to be the very cause of cardiovascular disease (read EAT TO LIVE by Dr. JOel Fuhrman) being a vegan means we want and need to know who serves vegetarian, healthy food. Well, this place is a complete joke if you want healthy food. Everything, and I mean everything on the menu is either deep fried or stir fried. Even the soups are loaded with oil by the managements own admission. Are they themselves health conscious and educated on a healthy lifestyle? NO Way. They think that deep fried is great and oil is king. They acted like I was a nut for asking if there was at least one dish that did not have oil. This place does not even have brown rice. And as for the fake meat dishes. Hydrolyzed Soy protein. And whey. If you call that healthy and even vegan, you and I are not on the same page as to what being vegan is all about. If you like deep fried so much and if you like oil so much, heck, just go to McDonalds and get fries and a Big Mac. Vegan is more than just not eating animal products, its about eating healthy and this place does not have the slightest idea what eating healthy means.

I think by making vegan food more appealing to the general public, it will be accepted more readily. Being vegan is about not eating animals. If I want to deep fry some onion rings, I'm going to do so, and I don't care if it was fried in vegetable oil. If it's just onion, flour and cornmeal deep fried in vegetable oil, who cares? Eat what makes you happy as long as you aren't eating animals.
That said, if they use whey, then that is definitely not vegan. That, I will agree with.
