Hooray! Vegan food for restaurant week

Earlier this week I wrote about how disappointing it was to discover that the only vegan menu for Palm Springs Restaurant Week had fish and honey on it.

Today I received a very kind e-mail saying that the menu has been adjusted.

Hello Maggie,

While I was retyping the menu for our website today it dawned on me about the Bonito Flakes. I did not know about Honey. I will update the menu.

Here are the replacements:

Vietnamese Vegetable Wraps:
Fresh Vegetables Wrapped in Softened Rice Paper Served Chilled with a Mildly Spicy Citrus Dressing

Spicy Tofu: (Our chef removed the honey)
Wokked in a Mildly Spicy, Garlic, Soy Sauce

Thanks for your input and for keeping us honest!

Sincerely yours,

Alford Harrison
Managing Partner, Wang's in the Desert

He also followed up with a very nice call.

So if you're a vegan/vegetarian in the Palm Springs area and you're interested in restaurant week, please support Wang's in the Desert. They put together a wonderful menu that not only has vegan options, but MULTIPLE vegan options. I also appreciate that they're so open to feedback from patrons.

Make a reservation today by calling 760.325.9264.

I'd visit that place for the name alone (yes, I am 10 years old).

I have to admit, that's what I love most about the place.

I'm pretty sure the people who run it also own Woody's at the Beach, a restaurant in Laguna Beach.

That's awesome. I'll definitely be going there.
