What does eating vegetarian really mean?

The one who declares him/herself being vegetarian does not eat animals. He or she does not consume meat, neither from mammals nor poultry, nor seafood. The vegetarian excludes the cooking methods including animal fat such as animal oil and lard although he generally consumes by-products of animals such as milk, cheese, eggs... while the one who declares him/herself being vegan does not consume meat nor animal by-products and thus consumes no animal products at all.

The rants are rated from 1 to 5  *  based on the effort made to satisfy the vegetarian clientèle – the criteria are: the number of vegetarian dishes served, but their quality and their nutritional balance too (the protein content, the presence of cereals...).
