Ferry Plaza (Papeete), Tahiti, French Polynesia

Serves meat, vegan options available. At sunset each evening around 6pm mobile about 10 fast food vendors set up tables for casual dinners. Prices are around FR$900-1300 for each vegetarian fry rice or chao mien/fry noodle dish. Note that MSG is used so ask to leave it out. Ingredients used are conventional, so the quality is not particulary good or healthy, but one can at least get a vegetable dish here. Advice: come early and be the first person to order so food and cooking utentsil are not contaminated with meats orders.

La Burger Machine - Edit

This food truck has 1 vegan lentil burger option served in a bread roll with lettuce,tomato and Fried onions. The only sauce that is vegan is the tomato sauce. Served with french fries or Uru chips. It was really good and the portion size was huge! Also the staff speak good english and its written vegan burger on their menu. Its a great atmosphere and worth a visit.

Pros: Great vegan fast food , staff speak english, Great Atmosphere

Cons: Also serves meat , only 1 vegan option

great scene and ambiance, not too many options - Edit

There's a great new truck called La Burger Machine that will substitute lentil burgers for any patty. Delicious. Most of the other trucks (about ten) had few vegetarian options but they seem to think fish is vegetarian

Hit or Miss - Edit

Although there are about 9-10 mobile vendors cooking up Chinese hot foods and Pizzas, the choice for vegetarians is rather limited to vegetable fried noodles, veg fried rice, and some with tofu. I tried a veg rice dish at the "Hong Kong" stall and ask the chef to leave out the MSG, but I think he put it in anyway or maybe it was the canned mushrooms he used, because I didn't feel so good afterwards... the taste was okay, but the MSG made me feel bad. There is another Chinese food stall "Kim" that look decent, so maybe that one is a better try!

Pros: fast, baquette served with meal, affordable

Cons: not 100% vegetarian, not organic, maybe bad cooking oils

Nothing for Vegans - Edit

Ive been here many times over the years and have never found anything vegan. There are stalls that do stir fries but I would never trust the pots etc.

Better off to shop in the main large grocery stores for staple items (where prices are capped on staple items)and the public market for produce.

Some of the guest houses have kitchens where you can cook.

Most of the higher end rest. Ive been to in Pap. are expensive for the quality/quantity of food.

Pros: people watching, view

Cons: nothing vegan
