hey all

ive been vegetarian for 2 years but...

right now im in japan for a month visiting my sister who lives here and we went to this chinese restaurant. we were very careful to ensure that my meal was vegetarian and our waiter was very good with it.

however we decided to get dessert and we had a different waiter. i ordered what we thought was cashew pie (my sister read the japanese menu for me).



when it arrived it looked ok little pastries with stuff inside i had some couldnt recognise the flavour so tried it again. started to get suspicious so my sister tried it. thats when we realised that it was like sweet and sour pork/processed spam kinda stuff.



we left really soon after that both feeling sick and i went to the nearest toilet to throw up. just wanted it out of me!



i dont know, nothing i can really do just feel stupid but who expects actual meat in a freakin dessert! god so pissed off! sorry so long, just needed thoughts...

Ugh. Well, I hope you're feeling better.



When I was in China, we were frequently served steamed buns. The fillling would be a mystery until you bit into it. I loved the sweet bean paste ... but they alternated it with bbq type pork and sausage. My boyfriend at the time was my taste tester.

There are different threads on here by veggies/vegans who wonder if relationships with meateaters work. Reading Jinga's comment about her former boyfriend being her taste-tester made me realise that I'm secretly glad that my partner does eat meat (although he doesn't very often at home - thankfully!). I don't know how I would have survived on holiday without him disecting and tasting everything for me!



Sorry to hear about your meaty dessert - yuck! Although, over here (UK) it's not uncommon to to find 'meaty stuff' in mousse/triffle type products! How anyone (meat-eaters included) would even consider buying a sweet product which actually has the word 'beef' of 'pork' on the list of ingredients is beyond me!

Buns are usually marked, so that you know which ones to take.

With ravioli style pasta (jiao-zi, guo-qie, wan-tan - actually Chinese and not Italian inventions) it's different, you better open them before biting into them. Sometimes Chinese friends make some with veg fillings for me, but still I have to look out not to spoil my meal with the meat filled ones.

If I'm not answering quickly enough - leave a note on Twitter for @Rheumatologe

Not these. It was a group situation at a school where they'd just cook what they wanted and have the plates on the table. They'd have one plate of buns at a meal, all the same, whether it be bean, pork, or whatever. No matter the filling, they were big ole white puffballs. It would probably be different if it was something where we were pointing and choosing ourselves.
