If one is a true strict vegetarian, Asian restaurants can be
tricky. Miso soup often contains bonito (fish) flakes or
stock. Fish sauce is a key ingredient, also in Thai
restaurants, they don't always realize that the fish sauce
needs to be left out of "vegetarian" dishes. Chinese often
think "chicken water' is okay, particularly if it is run by
Chinese people and the language is a problem. Just a word
for interesting, interested women in the
second half of life and living it well!
