Strip mall with very little vegan - Edit

I didn't try the food. But there is virtually nothing vegan on the menu. A ban me with tofu would be vegan if they didn't put mayo on it. There is one soup. Really depressing. Maybe something else I missed. Not vegan friendly at all.

Great Food & Great Prices - Edit

We really enjoyed our lunch at Be Le. We ordered a crepe to split and tofu sandwiches. The we asked them to add tofu to the crepe and it was really delicious. There were a couple of sauces that we weren't sure if the were vegan or not so we just went with what we knew, but I am sure they could explain what is vegan and what isn't. They were very friendly and helpful.

They were also flexible in taking off the mayo on the tofu sandwiches to make them vegan. The sandwiches were a very good size on fresh bread and were only $5/each. That is a GREAT price (especially for Kona). The french bread is amazing!

We live on the east side of the island and Ba Le now has me looking for excuses to visit Kona. I would give this 5 cows if I could, but since they do serve (mostly) meat options the system only lets you go to 4.

Pros: Bread, Price, Veg Options

Tasty Vietnamese food - Edit

Several vegan options, all very tasty. I especially liked the lemongrass tofu bowl. Just tell them you want it vegetarian and they'll make anything with a non-fish sauce.

Delicious Lemongrass Tofu! - Edit

I live in Kona and I am vegan and eat at Ba Le quite frequently. The spicy (or non-spicy) lemongrass tofu is excellent and very affordable. Where else in Kona can you get a vegan tofu sandwich on a house-made crusty french roll OR a bowl of vegan pho soup OR tofu over rice with a salad, for $5 each! You can't beat the price and the food is excellent. Lots of locals eating there.

Pros: Good value, Large Portions, Excellent Food
