When you’re a vegan, eating out with family and friends who aren’t vegan can be pretty difficult. I mean, you’re pretty restricted on what you can order off the menu. Regardless, more and more restaurants are making it easier.
But sometimes you get those restaurants that claim they cater to vegans, only to find out that they don’t actually do that. Regardless, they try to make an effort and serve you and your vegan dietary needs and you can’t blame them for trying.
People who don’t know what being vegan means think that they literally can’t eat anything…those people couldn’t be more wrong. There are so many delicious vegan foods, desserts, and restaurants and it’s getting more and more popular in our society.
However, for one restaurant in Spain, being vegan means simply eating a leaf of lettuce. Okay, maybe not that extreme but pretty close.
This past Saturday, Gabbie Jarvis took to her social media, posting a picture of her older sister Georgina’s ‘vegan’ meal.
In a restaurant in Malaga, Georgina, 19, and her family decided to grab some food while on holiday in Spain.
Georgina decided to order a vegetarian pizza without cheese. The restaurant staff told her that the pizza had egg in it, so she decided to go for a salad instead.
What the staff brought out was so funny, that Gabbie had to share the salad to the rest of the world. Her family couldn’t help but burst out laughing.
What was in front of them was a plate of chopped red onion and tomatoes. Gabbie told the Mirror, “When it arrived, me and Georgina shared awkard eye contact and I couldn’t help but laugh.”
Gabbie posted the photo on Twitter and the post has now been liked more than 81,000 times and has been retweeted over 16,000.
I mean technically this dish is vegan…a little too vegan! Gabbie captioned the photo “Out for tea and the restaurant claimed they catered for vegans, this was my sister’s amazing vegan meal”
