They had "butter" in most of their dishes.  I asked them about it and everything they sell is vegan, but they call Earth Balance or whatever they use "butter".  Quite misleading, I say.  There are omnis who don't want hydrogenated margarine and I, as a vegan, don't want dairy butter.  They should switch to olive or coconut oil or something like that.

About the avocado taco:  I talked it down so much, I felt obligated to try it.  It's as pointless as I thought (I did try it with an open mind and a hungry stomach).  The food doesn't match the hype, but I'm happy I tried it once.

HH, I grew up in Iowa. There, bog-standard soy-oil margarine was called "butter" by most people, because they never had anything else. Dairy butter was usually reserved for fancy cooking at Christmas etc. So I'm not that surprised that some people use the terms interchangeably, even in the restaurant business.

Me too, I have tried things once just to see, and to keep an open mind. Kind of like what happened this BD when we went to Bioparc. It was overhyped for what we got, but I'm glad I went, and I hope they make it better over time. Yeah, I was kinda disappointed, but I also had my heart set on having a good time, so I did.

Have I mentioned on here that I've had deep-fried Oreos?

I have.

I knew I had to get them, expected disgustingness, experienced unexpected deliciousness.

Felt disgusting afterward, tho.

Once my assistant manager brought fried oreos into work but she fried them the day before (I didn't eat them anyways because the batter) and they were all soggy and gross.

But I want to have them in a delicious fresh version.
I also want fried pickles.
Fried food for life.

Do you batter and fry?

Do you use onion ring batter?

I'm investing in making this happen.

HH, you could try this batter for frying: http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=32274.msg387076#msg387076
Of course you can leave the coconut out.

We had an interesting experience frying some stuff the other day. DH dredged the food in potato starch instead of wheat flour, and while it was hot it was really soft. But when it got cold it was deliciously crunchy!! Weird.

Nice.  I have some homebrew, so I'll give that one a shot.  I'm going to try and bake them, since I don't own enough oil to be able to fry.

:o
Wow. Cultural differences. I buy it 5 litres at a time, in two types: the expensive cold-pressed stuff for salads etc. and the cheaper kind for frying. So that means about 2 gallons of oil in the house at any one time.
Promise me if you use that recipe you'll review it!!

I didn't have much oil at a given time before either (maybe a liter), but then I got a Costco membership and a deep-fryer... so now I always have 2 gallons+

I chucked mine because it took so darn long to heat up! I just use a heavy, deep skillet about 14" in diameter, and one of those Chinese strainer-scoop things.
