katherine – vegan fail (or vegan win?)

April 18, 2011 - .  

brunch: coffee; leftover pasta with weird coconut-tomato sauce and chickpeas

cashews; Dogfish Head Raison D’Etre (vegan according to Barnivore)

dinner at Central Seafood, after explaining what a vegan does not eat, but feeling like perhaps the waiter was being somewhat lax in his interpretation: smoky apple in lettuce appetizer; snow pea leaf dish; tofu and mushroom dish; white rice; a few bites of a noodle dish before stopping because I was sure they tasted like egg noodles; Tsing Tao (I don’t know if it’s vegan)

After specifying the vegan restrictions, and asking the waiter “do these noodles have eggs?” and him saying “no, they’re wheat noodles,” and everyone at the table thinking they tasted vegan, I very annoyingly refused to eat them. But then Michael’s mom (quite craftily) tried, “These noodles taste so good. Where can I buy them? What are they called?”, which got us the answer: e-fu (egg) noodles.

Anyway, a good tactic to try if you encounter this situation.
