Ordering Thai food with no fish sauce?

By | December 17, 2013

I am a new vegan and I LOVE thai food. I've researched the ingredients in my favorite dishes and Fish Sauce seems to be the only non-vegan ingredient. Has anyone simply ordered their favorite thai dish without fish sauce? Does it taste remarkably bad? Is the restaurant usually fairly accommodating?

Thank you!

I did not ask a question about the authenticity of Thai food when it is missing a key ingredient. If you can not answer my question, please do not write anything – Keep your snarky comments to yourself. Thank you.

Thai foods without fish sauce is fine. If you cook them yourself you can have soy sauce or salt instead but I do doubt for the restaurants, some foods have been prepared, it might not be possible to have them without fish sauce.
