 When I first became vegetarian some 20 years ago, eating out was a world of vegetable lasagna and macaroni cheese, and that got better slowly overtime.

The vegan equivalents, today, are hummus/oilves/pita,  and superfood salad, or in less cosmopolitan places, a baked potato and beans.

I may have hummus fatigue by new year.

Best eaterie so far; wagamama. They are totally geared up for world of veganism, a well oiled adaptation machine. Second is Loungers, with a whole vegan menu, but it doesn't change very often. 

Here is hoping ti improves faster than vegetarian food did.

I always try to notice the number of vegetarian/vegan options on the menu as it's relevant for so many people I know. Fingers crossed that vegan options become more readily available.

IIRC, ubiquitous vegetable lasagna was replaced by ubiquitous goat cheese and chili tart.

My dad was vegetarian from the time I was small and has been vegan since I was in my mid-teens, my sister has been pescetarian since she was twelve, so I notice the availability of vegan and veggie food wherever I go.

Dad loves desserts. He may scream if anyone offers him another fruit salad, which is the default people give him when they realise he can't have dairy or eggs.

Finding vegan food is so hard. It's even worse here in Canada, where you're often lucky to find vegetarian never mind vegan, but it's a struggle everywhere. If you're ever in London, Mildred's always has a couple of good vegan options and their menu changes regularly.

We find Thai food is often good--most Thai places we've been to will have tofu options on their curries and servers should know whether something has fish sauce in (it's usually only the pad Thai).
