Hi glad to enjoyed your self, I know what you mean about lack of understanding. When i order a chicken salad and tell the specifically that I want no chicken dairy egos cheese or any animal product they always ask if I want cheese. except waitresses that know me. this floored me, at subway I ordered a veggie sub no cheese, my wife had chicken. The sandwich make asked me if I wanted him to use separate gloves for the subs. It so startled me that I didn't think to thank him for asking

I just got back from a trip to Vegas. I was expecting there to be a bit more awareness about veganism, seeing as how the strip lives on tourism. Some restaurants knew what I was asking for and some, well, didn't understand that a chicken is an animal product. Geesh!

What did impress me were the restaurants in the Wynn hotel. The Wynn is owned by a vegan, so one would actually expect there to be vegan awareness. I really have to recommend those restaurants for having a good selection of yummy vegan food.

When I made dinner reservations there for myself and my husband, I told the lady taking the reservation that I'm vegan. She arranged for me to have a server give me a special vegan menu and explain the menu to me. There were vegan choices for every course, including desert (unfortunately, it was sorbet, and I'm not a fan).

This is my plug for the Wynn hotel and its restaurants. I was impressed overall, and also want to plug for the Wynn because it's owned by a fellow vegan who cares enough to cater to us vegans in his restaurants.

Kudos! Viva Vegas!
