  • stop melting pot was my absolute favorite, every birthday, every friends birthday, every special event…. I was so devastated thinking I would never go back. HOW DID I NOT KNOW

  • I really liked the vegan options at the Melting Pot except for the fondue itself �� The Disaronno Vegan Chocolate was delicious. I’ve never had fondue but it wasn’t that great. And my non vegan partner didn’t enjoy it either. I did LOVE the juicy tofu it came with. Thank you for sharing your experiences!

  • I want to be best friends with these two ladies! Vegan food and laughs! How great would that be not to be the odd one ”vegan” who gets left out or ends up having to eat something not so vegan because there is nothing else (and getting called out for eating it ��)

  • The more I hear about Vegan and the corners ya’ll cut with the diet the less I feel like it’s really that healthy. You allow cooked food and seeds like potatoes & beans on the diet.

  • 21:36 I have actually wondered about that information. I sometimes see that it shows may contain milk or whatever and I figured that’s what it meant but wouldn’t get the item because I had doubts still. So thank you for that. Also these videos help a lot I went to a local barbecue spot here in Las Vegas.. it was soooo embarrassing asking what they cook stuff in. The person had no knowledge and it just took too long asking all these questions and I have kids so at times I won’t even eat because I just doubt it and feed my kids non vegan food so they usually eat and I’ll be soooo hungry ������ so definitely helps

  • Wow this was so informative! I’m in Australia but when I go to the US one day I will have to rewatch this vid so I know where to go! Also I’ve never heard of Olive Garden before! Those breadsticks look delicious

  • In France it’s not so easy eating vegan. We dont have the veggie burger in Burger King. But some restaurants are agree cooking vegan if you ask before.

  • thats crazy, melting pot was my graduation dinner, 4 years later and now a new vegan ID LOVE TO GO BACK AGAIN!!!❤️ ty for doing this i dont have to feel so restricted when dining with friends and family!

  • In india the McDonald’s has a burgur cLled a mcaloo tikki burger which they make the patty with potato and the cheese can be veganed and no mayo

  • I have really enjoyed your videos! I’m new to vegan eating and you’ve really helped me. Are you from California? You talk really fast lol I love it thanks again

  • I just want to let you know but someone had said that they cook the impossible burger on the same grill that they cook the regular burger. I don’t know how true that is but I wanted to give you a heads up and if I’m wrong please let me know

  • I’m mainly a vegetarian I only eat meat occasionally. I’ve struggled with food and an eating disorder in my past and present but I do hope to incorporate vegan options more often I love your channel

  • During the first two years of being vegan I ate from a few of these places except McDonalds. Overtime these foods nearly killed me. Much of this food is processed. I had to go thru a healing process..these foods wrecked havoc on my gut. So, I am now preparing all my meals fresh from scratch. Research all ingredients in these processed foods and you would be blown away!

  • How can it be vegan when its been cooked on the same grill as the meat or fried in the same oil as meat products sorry but this is a fail.

  • I work at P.F. Chang’s and the Buddha’s feasts you guys got was not suppose to look like that, it’s a really good dish when made right

  • The 7 Layer Burrito at Taco Bell fresco, add potatoes, red sauce, onions with Diablo and Hot sauce. My favorite when I have to resort to fast food in a pinch.

  • I hope the two of you will go to IHOP because I called around in my area and none of them had vegan or �� based items. Thanks for sharing.
