There is only one item clearly labeled vegan on the menu and it is an appetizer, vegan pot stickers. We had them the first time we visited, though skipped them on our most recent visit as they were deep-fried and we try to avoid heavily-fried food.
This visit, we had edamame as an appetizer; they were steamed and lightly salted, a nice healthy start to the meal. For entrees, we had drunken noodles, substituting tofu for chicken, and a curry dish with white rice and tofu. Both entrees were very tasty. We had planned to take half of our large portions home for lunch the next day, but neither of us could stop eating. We left empty-handed!
There are lots of other choices, though you will want to make sure that you specify that you are vegan beforehand. Some of the dishes are typically made with chicken stock, though they can substitute with water if requested. We asked about the pad thai and the summer rolls, but both are made with fish stock and cannot be made vegan here.
This is a place with a huge potential to be even more vegan friendly. Both times, we felt that our servers were not that familiar with the contents of each dish. A simple labeling of items as vegan, vegetarian or can be made vegan/vegetarian with modifications would alleviate some of this need. To their credit, our servers went back to the kitchen to verify, though that gets uncomfortable when there are multiple trips back to the kitchen. Also, sometimes you have to pay an up-charge to substitute tofu for a particular meat. With a little effort, we feel that QQ Kitchen could be one of the go-to vegan spots in the Toledo-area. Perhaps other readers can provide suggestions on how to navigate their menu.
We wanted to end on more praise as there really is a lot to like about QQ Kitchen. We liked that we had the option of soft or fried tofu. The craft beer selection is wonderful and rotated significantly across our couple visits. And we found the dishes to be very creative, not just the rehashing of traditional Chinese-American dishes.
