It’s important to have trust when dining out. It’s important to be able to go out to a restaurant and have the staff understand what the word “vegan” means, and be able to answer basic questions about the menu and its components. And if a particular staff member does not know, they need to be able to ask. It’s simple, right?
My veganism is important to me, so please don’t just guess, and please don’t confirm that something is vegan unless you are absolutely sure.
