    well this one doesnt, and seeing as its your friends birthday its her choice where she should go. Why should she put her and everyone else out just because your bf is a picky eater. There are veggie options at nandos

    its your friends birthday not yours - she goes where she wants to go - if your bf cant deal with a bean burger plate of chips garlic bread whatever then tough

    shes asking us what we think about going there, she said 'how about nandos?'

    They do veggie options at nando's. And appetisers. Or you two could go to the meal, have a salad and then eat properly at bowling, i've done that before.

    yeah but my mates are split the bill right down the middle type people so if we go and have a salad and end up playing OTT for it then have to have something at bowling its gonna cost us a fortune and its money we havnt got to chuck away

    Sort out such a simple problem on your own? If your bf can't eat there, tell him to join you all later, as it's his bizarre choice not to eat meat, not yours, so don't let him mess the night up for anyone other than himself.

    Wtf? None of those options, you and your bf go. Just 'cause he's a fussy sausage doesn't mean a) you can't go and b) your friend should change everything just for him. Just mix and match things - like stuff from the appetisers and a couple of sides ect., and ask them to be presented as the main course/whatever. And if worst comes to worst and there is a severe lack of things he likes on the menu (Get him to take a look at the one online), have something to eat before you go and having a little something there as well. I've done both for various reasons.

    we wont be able to have something before we go as we wont be at home we will be at my parents and im not going to ask them to make something for us

    option 1 will be the best probably if he doesnt fancy anything

    right so my mate has planned a night out for her bday (cool) bowling (great i love it) then she decides to maybe go for something to eat beforehand (ok) so how about nandos? (ooh bit of a problem now)

    basically if they go to nandos me and the bf wont be able to go, he doesnt eat meat (he eats fish though) but nandos dont do fish, so i basically have 3 choices

    1) me and the bf go somewhere else to have something to eat then meet up for bowling

    2) ask my mate if she wouldnt mind going somewhere more pescy friendly

    3) not go at all (we will have to leave about 22:15/30 anyway as we have to get two buses home

    so what do we do?
    i dont really see what the big deal is
    im veg and i love nandoes, they have veggie pittas/veggie burgers and more

    Can you not take something with you to your parents house, or even ask if you can make him something?

    But anyways, they do an absolute tonne of non-meaty stuff (Veggie stuff, sides ect.), so it's easy enough to mix and match

    You get chased by an angry mob for being a vege in a chicken store.

    Seriously though, get some hallumie cheese as a side order, he will love it.(its vegetarian)
    Halloumi?

    and no it isnt
