Omg, I love and miss Thaifoon. I now live in Tucson but I miss this place so much. It has probably some of the nicest owners I have ever met at a restaurant. They have excellent curry dishes and egg rolls, which they have told me do not contain egg. Even if the rolls did contain egg, this is seriously the ONE place in the world that I would make an exception. It is such a great hole in the wall place (seriously, that phrase must have been created due to Thaifoon). It is probably my favorite place to eat in Prescott and has beat Hugos (or whatever it is called now) in my mind.
The new owner is really nice, but that could be due to the fact that he and my father grew up in the same town in Iran. They offer many vegetarian and vegan options, though I'm always confused on what exactly is vegan for certain. If you go, just try to specify what products you cannot eat, but if you're vegan that you are already used to doing that.
I really love their vegan pizza, I think it is the best in town surprisingly. Old Chicago on Broadway often has really soggy crust and spinach, and the last time I ate one of their veggie pizzas it made my stomach turn. Fortunately, Frog n Firkin's pizza crust is excellent; firm and fairly thick. They have a lot of optional veggie toppings like artichoke hearts, sun dried tomatoes, jalapeno, and others. There are a few other vegan options on the menu, including I believe a veggie sandwich, which I have not tried. They have a good selection of beer as well.
Of course, the environment sucks. But it's a college bar on University, what do you expect? My girlfriend and I usually find the most quiet spot, which is usually in the back of the restaurant past the bar. Frog n Firkin offers delivery, so if you hate the environment but love the food, then you can order delivery.
I initially thought that nothing could be made vegan here, and this belief was due to an employee at the location on Ina and Oracle telling me that nothing could be made vegan except for the white rice. Later, I researched online and found that there are items labeled vegetarian by a little green leaf. Vegetarianism excludes fish products, so I imagine this means that there is no fish sauce included in those dishes. This is again contrary to what I was initially told by an employee, but I can't imagine that corporate leaders of Pei Wei would not understand that vegetarians don't eat fish.
I have gone back to Pei Wei and have had the Spicy Korean dish with vegetables and tofu. The dish was excellent, though the last time I ordered it it tasted somewhat funky, like something was burnt or that the flavor of eggs transfered from something else they cooked before my dish. As with many restaurants, the cooks don't always clean their cooking apparatus, especially not when they are busy. I guess this is an issue I've come to accept, as I'm a student and need to often eat out as I can't always go home to cook.
I just found this website that lists what is vegan:
As already states, this place is very friendly to vegans. Plus they have amazing coffee that is brewed as you order it. I always enjoy the ambiance and the employees are exceptionally friendly. I like the music that they play and I would love to see a dance party there sometime. :)
