    @AB Bride:  I like to share, depending on who I am eating with. If its my boyfriend, I like to share.

    We typically share. Much of my family is vegetarian, so we always share ours with each other and the dead animal eaters do the same.

    We sometimes share the pho since DH always get the xe lua/extra large but we usually have our own take out since it’s hard to split the com ba mau/pork chop rice plate or a com tay cam/rice in claypot.

    Always family style, comes with growing up Chinese I think.  I’m pretty sure DH always ordered his own dish until we started dating.  The portions are SO big though, how can you not do family style!?  Plus you get more variety 😀

    I don’t want to share.  I don’t want to eat what someone else ordered if I don’t like it, while they are eating some of mine.

    @AB Bride:  I always like to share, and if it’s my FI and I, then we always always share, even when going out to eat.  Typically with other friends, family etc. I don’t.  They don’t seem into it.

    Only exception is going out for sushi with friends.  Then we usually order a bunch and share it all.

    We always do family style. Except for pho, then we get our own (and usually eat at the restaurant).

    @AB Bride:  Ideally I would like to share.  But I don’t always want what the others have ordered, so then I end up eating my own dish.  Booo.

    This thread is making me hungry… 

    We typically order our own individual entrees, and end up trading bites.

    Vietnamese to me is a Pho so it’s not really designed for sharing. FI and I often swap mid meal for a taste of what the other is eating. If I like his then I keep it 😉

    Vietnamese near me comes family style by default.  They just put the dishes in the middle of the table.

    Unless it’s Pho, we share our orders.
