Very helpful but tofu contains egg - Edit

Lovely food, and very helpful, but staff a bit confused on their own ingredients.

Separate vegetarian options are listed, and we requested the standard no fish sauce no egg etc. The green curry is listed as including 'egg tofu' which we'd never heard of. The waiter was kind enough enough to show us the tofu packaging which was a weird squeezy tube, with a drawing of a woman holding eggs on, so we assumed it wasn't safe. He left out the tofu and added extra veg instead. However, we had also ordered the crispy tofu which didn't mention it was made with egg tofu, but had a very creamy consistency. When we were back on WiFi we googled it and it was clear that the crispy tofu is made with egg tofu, and that egg tofu does contain egg.

Aside from this confusion the rest of the food was good (smoky aubergine dip) and it's a great concept, training up disadvantaged children with working skills. Just not great for vegans.

Pros: Does social good, Some vegan dishes

Cons: Mislabelling, Tofu contains egg

fresh and tasty - Edit

These guys understood the 'no fish sauce' request which can be a challenge in Laos. Very nice meal tapas style
