so i’ve been in oahu pretending that it’s summertime everyday and everything is magical fun.

I WANT TO GO BACK!

most of the time we were being frugal and eating boring things, but we found a few good vegan places to eat! here’s the scoop!

The first place we found was Peace Cafe. despite only serving decaf coffee, the food was great! it’s a small place, everything is vegan and delicious. It’s around the University, near some good veg groceries.

Here is the BBQ tempeh plate! coleslaw, cornbread, BBQ tempeh, salad and rice

Next up is bibimbap! pickled carrots, bean sprouts, seaweed, kimchi fresh tofu and rice.

this is Lucy the dog! she lives at the first house we were staying at and we fell in true doggy love.

One of the great finds was Downbeat, a diner in Chinatown. it’s not all vegan, but everything there CAN be vegan. there is a venue attached, good drink specials and breakfast all day. We weren’t staying really anywhere near Chinatown, but we made it to downbeat twice because it was so delicious.

Here is a “buffalo chicken” sandwich!

everything we cooked was pretty much some weird combination of sprouts, avocado and random veg. oh and chips. we had limited cooking facilities, at times, none. here’s marky beachin’ it and our super fancy tofurkey sandwiches.

Another top pic! Beet Box Cafe. it’s a small restaurant in the back of a health food store. i wish we’d been able to eat there more than once. we got a particularly good tofu scramble with black beans, fresh avocado, broccoli and rice.

this sandwich was INCREDIBLY GOOD. tempeh bacon-style, tomato, avocado, pea sprouts, red onion, veg mayo, grated carrot and good bread.

we spent part of  our trip staying on the beach in a hut. these two dogs ran the place.

here are some chickens i didn’t eat! there were roosters and chickens running wild on all the beaches all over. and one rooster who was intent on waking us up everyday at the crack of dawn.

Our last night we took another swing by Downbeat for happy hour.
