Honolulu Magazine Spotlights Vegan Dining Scene

The Hawaii-based publication notes the rising trend of cruelty-free eating and the restaurants that cater to it.

Honolulu magazine recently published the article “Vegan and Gluten-free Dining in Hawaii,” which compiled a list of the best restaurants to serve vegan and vegetarian cuisine on the tropical island. Some of the eateries, such as Roy’s Waikiki and Opal Thai Food, cater to omni clientele, but have added cruelty-free dishes to their menus, while others such as Peace Café and the Loving Hut serve exclusively plant-based dishes. The author attributes the recent rise in veg cuisine to Hawaii’s cutting edge culinary experts, some of whom have made their way from the mainland. “Thanks to our forward-thinking chefs who keep in step with the national trend of putting the spotlight on vegetables, vegetarians and, to a lesser extent, the gluten-free can eat out well in Honolulu,” she writes. “The phenomenon of vegetable-as-main-dish has taken root here, especially with the influx of transplanted chefs.”
