I've noticed that many Asian restaurants we frequent list items in their vegetarians section that contain fish/chicken broth and sauces in alot of the items.
Example: We go to a Vietnamese Restaurant, and the other day we got an eggplant dish with rice. I immediately thought that has chicken broth! (you know you can tell by the texture and color) . When we inquired it indeed did, but had no mention of it on the menu. We looked at some other items in the veg section that did indeed say chicken broth. We were already used to seeing many with fish sauce , so it wasn't that terribly shocking. I'm just curious as to why, opening a restaurant in America,some places are so naive to our concept of veg*nism . I understand the differences in cultures, I just think its odd to be so careless, especially considering those with allergies..ie..eggs in meals without it saying such!!
Can anyone enlighten me? And while we are at it, do you have any experiences to share regarding this subject?
