I did a postwhen I went in may, you might find it helpful if you are staying in Waikiki. In short, there were just a couple of health food stores that were only open during the day and restaurants seemed to cater to the tourist fish eating crowd and weren't always so willing to accommodate. At one restaurant I asked if the vegetable rissoto was vegan and the guy literally laughed at me (way to serve your customer). After that I learned to always call ahead. My favorites were definitely a stand called da falafel king (I went at least three times) and breakfast at Lulu's. And Maui Tacos!

I loved the swimming pool at the Sheraton, they had an amazing one for kids with waterslides and toys and then a beautiful one for adults only. I could live my life in that pool.

I stayed in Waikiki and got by on salad bars. That sounds kind of sad, but there were SO many of them, the prices weren't bad (in my opinion, but US food prices always blow my mind for being so much cheaper than here), and the stuff was generally pretty fresh. I also found a few beachside places that did vegan smoothies. I wish LazySmurf's post had existed before I went!

I'd meant to check out a few vegan-friendly Chinese restaurants when I was downtown and in Chinatown, but for some reason I was never really that hungry in Hawaii and was always just looking for fresh stuff. It's the closest to raw I'll ever have been! But I would have definitely gone to that falafel stand had I found it.

There is a Whole Foods, so if you stay somewhere with some kitchen amenities you can probably make that work.

It is probably different with kids in tow, but I spent so much time walking around that I didn't really find it necessary to do a bunch of advanced research on where to eat. The most annoying thing about being in Waikiki was that the only fresh papaya and mango I could find were in plastic containers in 7-11 stores.

Thank you both for your replies.

Great help and I understand there are two Loving Huts so I'm positive we will not go hungry.

Cheers.

I went to da falafel king when I visited Oahu in September, after reading lazysmurfs recommendation. It was sooo good. I could have eaten there every meal. We stayed on the North Shore, where the vegan options are almost nil (Turtle Bay had a vegan entree at one restaurant but it was not very good). I stocked up on fresh fruit, hummus, and crackers at Costco. I was glad we had a minifridge in our room. Had we stayed longer, I would definitely have gone to the Whole Foods. I wish I had known there are Loving Huts there! Hawaii was so beautiful - enjoy!

I am currently residing in Hawaii.

Here are some places.
1)Loving Hut off of King St. (There is one on Pensacola, but they are ok.)
2) Peace Cafe
3) Licious Dishes (Raw Vegan To-Go)
4) Simple Joy
5) Down To Earth is a vegetarian/vegan mart that also has a food area. They have a location in Honolulu, Pearl City, Kailua, and Kaneohe.
6) Whole Foods
7) Z-Pizza which has a vegan pizza (located at the Ward Center)

Oh yeah...there is a vegetarian Dim Sum place in Chinatown (during brunch hours)...they have several vegan items.

Hope this helps!!! <3
