Oh. I was at a Big Al's bowling alley with a recent vegan friend of mine. We were looking at the menu for anything that could possibly be vegan. There were:
Chips and Salsa
The choices were already not much. Everything was pretty meaty and cheesy. So we asked the girl at the front "Do you know if the onion rings have animal products in them?" She just looked at me, a bit dumbfounded. And said "Well, I know they use like a beer batter. I think. Here lemme go check *runs off*"
So we sat for about 5 minutes, then she comes running back and goes, "Well, there's milk stuff in them. and uh, they're kinda fried in the same oil as all the meat and stuff."
I was pleased that she knew the oil would count to us, even if there wasn't milk. We then asked about the chips. "They're fried in the same oil. Same with the fries. But I can give you um... A thing of salsa..?"
XD It was kind of funny. It's like, yeah we really want to just grab a spoon and dump salsa in our mouths. Forget the chips!
Luckily the pretzels were vegan and BAKED not fried, so everything was okay. Besides, my friend's gave everyone a huge vegan cookie after the games so it was all good. :]
I think that girl was nice about it though, and very informative.
