Mock duck - all vegan?

My partner and I have just found a local Chinese takeaway that serves mock duck/seitan on the veggie menu and I was really excited to try it. I phoned them up to make sure that it was an all vegan dish but no-one in the place could tell me whether or not it was. They said it was bought in but for some reason she couldn't/wouldn't check the packaging - I think we were both struggling to understand each other. My searches online so far are showing that mock duck is always vegan, never has egg added etc - am I just being paranoid? Would you safely assume that mock duck was vegan as well as vegetarian? Or shall I stick to the veggies with cashew nuts?!

That awkward moment when your partner walks into the kitchen to find you huddled in the corner with an open container of nooch and a spoon and your mouth encrusted with little flakes...

As far as I know, it's always vegan.

I have never seen unvegan mock duck, but that doesn't mean it isn't out there. Maybe you can try calling again and home to get someone else?

If they serve vegetarian food, they shouldn't mind showing you the package that the food comes in. I would go there in person and ask - there has to be someone there that has greater fluency in English.

I have seen mock duck in an Asian market that had fish stock in it, so I'd get clarification somehow. (I am not sure if it was Korean or Chinese in origin, as this market has both kinds of goods.)

Thanks everyone, I will try and speak to someone again. Fingers crossed, I love mock duck and my homemade stuff is never quite the same!

I never acquired a taste for mock duck. My daughter & Son in Law like it, though.

I'm stuck on tofu & veggies.

All animals should be respected & should have the ability to lead a natural & enjoyable life. This means not eating them, or abusing them in any way.
