Vegetarian Specials

The word "vegetarian" apparently means something different to the person who designed this menu. At first it looks as if they think chicken is not real meat, but then you see pork and steak, too. Maybe it means "has vegetables in it"? Maybe not, as the first offering doesn't mention vegetables at all. Go figure! -via Arbroath

Well, without context from the rest of the menu, perhaps there is a page we are not seeing? I did once go to a vegetarian restaurant, where everything was listed kinda like this, but it was all tofu. It was explained in the menu.

Alternatively, chickens _are_ vegetarians themselves, aren't they?

As I understand it, Buddhists occasionally eat vegetarian. As a result, many Asian countries have created vegetarian versions of meats (based in seitan, tofu, lycoprotein from mushrooms, or various beans). I don't want this to seem spammy, but an example is here:

(I looked for others that I've been to, such as Golden Era, but their menu's been cleaned up to put meat-referential terms in quotation marks...)

My wife and I once noticed that a restaurant we used to eat at became a "vegetarian" restaurant. When we talked to the waiter he said that it was a business decision to set themselves apart from the competition, but not to worry - if we still wanted meat, we could still have it. I thought that was funny - usually, vegetarians ask if a dish could be made meatless. This was the opposite!

Ever been invited to a vege's house for a meal? No choice, you say? No consideration for your particular food preferences, perhaps? Food-fascist forcing their ridiculous and irrational "lifestyle" choices on you?

I went to a restaurant one time with a vegan friend, after we were assured by phone that they had vegan choices. We perused the menu, then my friend questioned the server. It turned out the restaurant considered the food vegetarian if it didn't have meat in it, as several of the supposedly vegetarian dishes were made with animal stock. The owner seemed surprised when we complained.
