Do I just have bad luck or does this happen to others?
I hate restaurants. I do not even know why I try to go to them.
I went. I ordered and the waiter said, "oh you are the one that called." I answered politely, "yes" and I politely asked, "with the feta not on mine, is there anything else a strict vegetarian would not eat on it." He smiled and said, "vegan? Yes it would be totally vegan then."
It came. It was good but small. Then after eating about one fourth of it, I noticed it had some yellowish-white strands about one centimeter long, melting. It was sparse amounts but was on all the toppings. I did not say anything and being hungry and it being so little, I ate it.
The restaurant was not very busy; it was early, so I see no excuse for what happened to have happened. I understand the staff actually cooking the food is just following the orders but if I phoned about ingredients and then iterated my questions to the waiter who used the word 'vegan' on his own, why can the waiter not tell the staff not to add the cheese (again, the restaurant was not busy.) The menu did not state any parmesan or mozzarella cheese was on the pizza, so there is no way I could have known. The waiter should know the food.
Or am I completely wrong assuming it was cheese. Is there something else with that description (thin, short, whitish strands that melt?)
Sorry for the rants but I wanted to express myself.
No, your not alone. Happens all the time to me.
