I have been in Kaua’i, Hawaii for the past week and an half, (thanks to the kindness and generosity of my extended family) and in addition to snorkeling and hiking I’ve been trying to document any interesting vegetarian or vegan foods I’ve encountered. This post is just a preview of some of the things I’ve found.
There are farmers markets basically every day of the week somewhere in Kaua’i. We visited the one in Koloa. These are chicos.
We visited the National Tropical Botanical Garden and saw a garden filled with native foods as well as foods brought to Hawaii by Japanese and Polynesian people.
I had an interesting black bean burrito from a food truck in Hanapepe, a vegan brownie from a bakery in Kapa’a, and an incredible plate of crispy fried avocado tacos from a restaurant in Poipu. I’ve got three more glorious days to enjoy here, so look for more details on my Kaua’i culinary adventures next week!
