food The vegans don’t want to split the bill with you. Shannen Findlay

“It can really suck.”

“As a vegetarian and non-drinker splitting the bill can really suck. Also, if you have fellow diners who order entrees and desserts. We had this continually happen until my cousin spoke up and we are glad she did as she rightly said her veggie pasta should not cost her $100.” — Sarah.

“I’d rather not let money muck up a relationship.”

“I’m vegetarian and always happy to split if we’re all sharing! My friends and family are always super accommodating and ensure we order lots of vego stuff for the table. If we’re ordering separate meals and I got a $20 pasta and someone got a $60 steak, I would feel less inclined to split down the middle. But, I always take the approach that I’d rather not let money muck up a relationship.” — Sydney.

“We usually just eat vegan.”

“I’m a vegan who eats out with non-vegans all the time and we usually just eat vegan. It’s very cultural to share meals when we eat in a group so we all split bills in equal amounts.” — Maddy. 

“You pay for what you had.”

“I’m vegan but that’s irrelevant as food usually costs the same anyway. One friend picks up the bill, posts a picture of the receipt and you pay for what you had.” — Asten. 

“I got sick of paying $110 for some broccoli.”

“I’m vegetarian, gluten-free and hardly eat anything when out to dinner (weird ADHD food things). So, I announce at the start I’m paying for my own only as I often can only get a side of steamed vegetables off the whole menu for $11. I got really sick of paying $110 for some broccoli.” — Clare.
