Best meal I had on the big island

Finally a delicious, protein packed, ocean front dining experience where I wasn’t stuck with a side salad

Pros: Can substitute tofu for some of the main dishes , Staff and menu were clear on vegan items, Macadamia nut encrusted tofu is really good

Cons: A few options for vegans

New Menu, Vegan Options

I’ve been to Huggo’s a few times over the past year for their cocktails and lovely ocean breezes in spite of their lack of vegan options.

However, it looks like they finally figured it out! They have an updated menu with 3 AMAZING vegan entree options substituting tofu as an option to their seafood.

- Spicy Sichimi Togarashi tofu with mashed ube and haupia sauce (my fave)
- Macadamia nut crusted tofu with rice and a ginger lemongrass sauce
- Sesame seared tofu with yakisoba and an orange plum sauce

It’s WAY pricey (almost $40 for each entree), and it’s annoying that they don’t take reservations. That’s why I gave them 3 stars and not 4.

Cons: Expensive

A few vegan options, very tasty

We ate here for dinner one night during our stay on the island. Our group wanted a fancier dinner with a view. They had 1 vegan appetizer (fries) and 1 vegan entree (pasta). Both were very good- we especially liked the pasta! There was also a vegan dessert option (coconut sherbet), but we were too full to try it. Although we wished there were more vegan options, we were very happy with the ones clearly labeled on the menu and the non-vegans in the group were happy as well.

Pros: Amazing view of the ocean, Lots of drink options , Clearly labeled vegan options

Cons: Not very many vegan options

Worst meal I’ve had on the island

We went here because the menu posted online had a lot of vegan options. We showed up and there was a 30 minute wait. Ok, no problem, we will wait. As we’re waiting we notice that the menu posted at the entrance is different than the one online.... I figured it was the old menu and they just hadn’t updated it yet. We get sat and they give us a totally different menu than the one posted or the one online.
I got the jack sandwich and it was so bad. It was described as a jackfruit sandwich with guava hoisin and caramelized onions, and coconut slaw, but the onions were just raw sliced onion. And the jackfruit tasted like perfume? Absolutely horrible. And the coconut slaw that came in the sandwich equaled about 1 teaspoon. I would stay away from here. Hopefully they can get their menu figured out.

Vegan options on menu

As of January 2020 vegan options are marked on the menu at Huggos and Huggo's on the rocks. I believe their meat replacement is Beyond Meat products. They also offer Jackfruit. Great atmosphere, fun place to go!

Great for the vegan eating with the family

I had breakfast there, and we all know breakfast is hard to eat out vegan. But man was the modified avocado toast great. We went back for dinner and there were enough options to have actual choices and even an appetizer or two. It’s right on the water and beautiful.

Pros: Vegan options , Easy modifications , Beautiful ocean view

Cons: Service is slow , A bit pricey

Vegan options available!

Some items can be veganized with a plant-based patty or jack fruit. Wasn’t great.. maybe since the vegan options were new they’re still working out the flavors, but I give them credit for trying and for being one of the only restaurants in the area that even offered vegan options.

New menu alert! Several New Vegan Dishes

I was in search of a seaside dining option and called to see if they had vegan options. To my surprise they just revamped their menu and added hearts of Palm as a substitution for several of their main dishes. We tried two and they were both very tasty.

Pros: Fun location , Great drinks

Cons: Pricy

Went with my family who are carnivores and fried food addicts who are allergic to all vegetables. All I can find as a vegan was a green salad and brown rice. They should put up a large sign “Vegans can enter if they want to starve”.

Pros: Friendly staff

Cons: Expensive , No vegan options
