Respond to Review of The Soup Stop
Review: Upon arrival at the Soup Stop the overall feel of the place was reasonably good and we were happy to find it was open on a public holiday when some of the other places on Happy Cow were not. However, the big problem was when I observed some jelly lollies on the benchtop while considering my order. Taking a closer look around I realised they were stocking chocolates that have gelatin in them (e.g. Cherry Ripes) - see pictures. For this reason alone I would not call the establishement vegetarian. We did still eat there as the other vego places were closed. We limited our dishes to vegan options. This ensured we weren't consuming cream/yoghurt that may have gelatin or cheeses that have animal rennet. The food itself was quite tasty, although it seems a lot there is microwaved so it wasn't overly fresh. For those who are vegetarian and want dishes with dairy, I highly suggest you request to see the ingredients list of their cream, etc. I have contacted Vegetarian Australia regarding this issue and they will follow it up at their next meeting.
