I have vegan friends. When we go out, it's usually to a place that is vegan based. They watch expectantly as I try the impossible burger, coconut calamari, and heart of palm crab cakes. I always predictably tell them that while they taste decent, they taste nothing at all like what they claim to be. Afterwards, I usually make a late night trip to In-N-Out.
I completely understand the reason behind this, and I appreciate it.
