|Well Bento Vegan Plate Lunch|
If you find yourself in Pearl Ridge (not far from Pearl Harbor) for the Sunday swap meet at the Stadium or the Kam drive-in, you can pop in for a tasty & healthy lunch at the Down to Earth cafe & grocers. There are also branches of Down to Earth in other parts of the island.
The most popular spots with the locals are the plate-lunch eateries: Graces, Diners, L&L, Zippy's and other local style plate lunch places around the island offer 2 scoops of rice, macaroni salad (green salad or coleslaw choice too) with a main dish. Most offer fish options alongside the usual meat fare and Zippy's also offers tasty vegetarian chili & rice, veggie tofu burger and meat-free saimin noodles.
|Banzai Sushi Bar- Vegan sushi|
The Banzai Sushi bar also in Haleiwa also gets a thumbs up for its many options without meat or fish. Don't miss the melt-in-your-moth shaved-ice (try azuki bean and vanilla ice cream in the bottom) from Aoki's or Matsumoto's before leaving Haleiwa.
Pali Gardens, Lanikai Juice, or the middle eastern foods at Pita Pocket Cafe are also great.
