British woman Georgina Jarvis found one of those places. The 19-year-old was on holiday in Spain with her family, when they sat down to dinner at a restaurant in Fuengirola, near Malaga on the Costa del Sol.

“A member of staff came out to greet us and my dad asked if they catered for vegans. The man claimed they did,” Georgina’s sister Gabbie told The Mirror.

Look, the girl is holidaying on the Costa Sel Sol so our sympathy isn't overly 'substantial'. But dear God, at least whack some dressing on there or something. Maybe an olive or two, even a lettuce leaf.

Gabbie shared the images to twitter, and they have since attracted 55,000 likes and been retweeted 14,000 times.

The question most commenters had was "how much?" The answer: €6-€9.

Apparently Georgina is accustomed to eating salad veggies, so ate what she was given.

But not before ordering a side of bread.

Without butter, of course.
