Hi Travel Lovers,
Today is all about Herbivores Vegan Fast-Food Hawaii restaurant. This place was a lifesaver for me and the Hippie when we where on the Big Island, in Kona, Hawaii. One of the best things about it, and we vegans appreciate this so much, is the fact that this Fast-Food place is completely vegan. We could have tried all meals without having any restriction. They even have gluten-free options.
The Location is great. It is in the middle of a parking lot, so you can come in and park your car. It is also walking distance from the beach. Can you imagine taking a vegan burger to the beach in Hawaii and just enjoy the view? It took our breath away.
The staff is super friendly, knowledgeable and fun. You can tell they put an effort into doing a good job.
I also like the fact that on each table you have info about healthy food and veganism. It is a great way to motivate people to eat more strictly vegetarian dishes and learn something new along the way.
We ate there about 3 or 4 times. We even attended an Open Mic Night that was happening behind Herbivores. The place is great and we recommend it just because of the good vibes.
Oh the food, let’s talk about the food. I have to admit it. I love fast-food. But with a healthy twist. Not always, but I try to keep a good balance.
My favourite was the Jackfruit Nachos! What a savoury treat. The best description of this wonder is made in the Menu:
“Organic Tortilla Chips, Layered With Organic Chili Beans, Organic Jackfruit, Cashew Cheddar & Cashew Sour Cream. Topped With Organic Lettuce, Local Tomato & Red Onion.” Organic, full of veggies, and the cashew sour cream is just delicious! This dish is to share with friends because for me it was too much for just one person.
The Chick’N Alfredo was another of our favourites. The Hippie loved it! “Cream Cashew Alfred0 Sauce, Gardein Chick’n, Spinach, Cherry Tomato, Garlic, Homemade Cashew Moxarella Cheese, Shredded Cheese & Parmesan.” Initially, the name made me think twice about this Pizza. I had to remind myself that this is a fully vegan place. And I just dug in! This mixture of flavours just works wonderfully on a Pizza.
In terms of desserts and sweet things, Herbivores has a lot of great options. When you are waiting to order you can see right next to you at least 3 or 4 types of XXL size cookies. Chocolate ones, or cream ones,… There is also doughnuts and cupcakes. I could tell you how many sweets I bought there in just a few days, but I am embarrassed to tell the number! (LOL!)
They have many other options but these are the ones that stand out for us!
Overall Opinion of Herbivores Vegan Fast-Food Hawaii?! If you like vegan healthy Fast-Food and you are in Kona, Hawaii, this is the place for you. Great food, great staff and customer care, close to the beach and with parking spaces all around it.
