Calling all veg heads - what are your common pitfalls when ordering at non veg restaurants?

Nikki NYC | Feb 16, 2007 09:19 PM

I try to stay as close to vegan as possible and I find that ordering in non-veg restaurants takes a lot of strategy and diligence. Many times the waiters push the "vegetarian" risotto on me until I ask if it is prepared with chicken stock - it always is. The other common problem I have is if I forget to tell them to hold the cheese then they find a way to sneak it in. What issues do you have?
