It can be tough finding vegan items on restaurant menus, but in 2019 most places have stepped up their game with plant-based options.
However, one Twitter user has shown there's still a long way to go, by sharing the sad surprise she received after a celebratory dinner.
"I went out for my birthday and I'm vegan so they gave me a single slice of banana instead of cake," wrote Yazmin.
She shared a photo of the slice of banana in the middle of the dish accompanied by 'Happy Birthday' written in chocolate syrup, which Yazmin later confirmed to be vegan - a nice touch.
The tweet has racked up over 8000 shares and almost 60,000 likes, with many fellow vegans sharing their own disastrous birthday 'treats' - including this sad tale from Logan.
"One time I went out for my birthday and they gave me a cup of ice with a cherry on top," he revealed.
"I got a half-peeled orange with a candle lol," recounted another Twitter user.
"I too am vegan and one time one of my colleagues was moving to another store and he got everyone cookies and me a celery stick," wrote another.
