Ms Murnane said she was disappointed to be served such an average meal given veganism is now more common.
‘This happens all the time, but vegans are not that uncommon anymore,’ she said.
‘I’m pretty non-confrontational, so I didn’t complain or anything. But I won’t be returning anytime soon.’
The Newcastle restaurant reportedly refused to comment.
