How do you know which dishes are vegan? (I think you are fully vegan, right?!?) I've been there quite a few times since I live really close and they can never tell me which dishes are vegan friendly. So disappointing :(

Yep, I usually avoid the curry-like dishes and mostly just buy the drier stuff in case they put dairy in it. I also avoid the breads and sweets. I think you should ask the lady coz I think she's the owner. Most of their food should be vegan because they market it as "vegetarian/vegan". :)

Another thing I do at restaurants in case they don't understand me is show them what veganism means in malay. I have a note on my phone.

Good idea... How do you define veganism in Malay?
EtherealDarkling   Dec 15th 2016 at 9:27PM
My malay friend wrote this to show to restaurants:
"Saya seorang vegan. Vegan tidak menggunakan apa-apa yang mengadungi produk yang diperbuat daripada haiwan ataupun yang dikaji atas haiwan."

The longer definition and all:
Veganism merupakan gaya hidup yang ingin menjauhi semua bentuk eksploitasi dan kekejaman terhadap haiwan bukan sahaja sebagai alas perut malah pakaian ataupun perkara perkara lain secara sedaya upaya dan praktikal.
Makanan vegan tidak mengandungi mana mana sumber haiwan.

That's a great description! Is there a single term in Malay for vegetarian or vegan?
EtherealDarkling   Dec 15th 2016 at 9:38PM
For vegan, It's also "vegan" in Malay but most people don't know what that means or think it's vegetarian so need to explain lol. Don't know if there is a word for "vegetarian".

Thank you so much for your answer, EtherealDarkling! The problem I face is less explaining veganism than them actually being honest and knowing what is in their food. I was there last time with my boyfriend and I asked them in English which dishes do not contain milk, ghee, paneer etc., my bf asked them in Tamil (or Telugu, not sure, some Indian language) and we both got the answer that most dishes should be without. But when I pointed to some specific dishes, the waiter was just looking at me and saying that he thinks it's vegan. I just know that they usually dishes with cabbage are not vegan, and yeah, maybe you are right the "saucier" stuff could be unvegan.

But anyway, thanks again. Might give them another chance <3

Yep, you should! I am told that most waiters would not know much to answer questions like that. I think better ask for the person in charge (manager/owner). They should be able to give a reliable reply :)

That's true! Maybe I should go there for lunch once instead of dinner and see if there is someone who knows more :) And maybe one day we'll have vegan restaurants everywhere :D
