Another Vegan Meal

Sunday lunch. Try try. With Master W and K.

Site is a converted gas station.

Kaukau Lū’au

The Mouse’s order.

Local Okinawan sweet potato (u’ala), taro (kalo), breadfruit (ulu – when in season) and lū’au leaves soaked in a creamy coconut sauce with your choice of poi, brown rice or millet, tofu poke (plain or spicy) and fresh local greens.

The Mouse liked.

Coco-Bacon Super Salad

The Cat’s order.

Bed of fresh local greens with tomato, beets, carrots, avocado (when available) and coco-bacon. Choice of our house-made vegan ginger tahini or balsamic dressing.

Coco-Bacon

First time trying coco-bacon, coconut chip bacon substitute. Not bad, The Mouse is not a big fan, but not opposed to it.

The Cat chew chew chewed, got tired, so we switched plates toward the end. Hee hee.

The Cat liked desert.

Out of This Swirled Soft Serve

Our vegan take on “ice cream” (using a banana and coconut milk base), served with pineapple, banana, papaya, our house-made granola, honey, cacao “magic shell” sauce, cacao coconut flakes, and mac nuts.

Funny, although both The Cat and The Mouse were “full”, there was something “missing”. Especially after the vegetarian dinner the other night. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Place had good reviews, The Mouse had an urge to try.

I know, hospital cafeteria, but, write up was intriguing (from their website).

The Bistro is Adventist Health Castle’s cafeteria, located in the hospital’s lower level and open to the public.

 

In keeping with the traditions of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, The Bistro emphasizes good health.

Several features distinguish The Bistro from the cafeterias in most hospitals:

  • Although some of our dishes are made with dairy products or eggs, no meat at all is served.
  • We emphasize fresh foods. At every meal, there is always a selection of cooked fresh vegetables, fresh fruit, and a salad bar.
  • We take pride in not using dishes that are pre-prepared. Nearly all of our entrées are made from scratch. As much as possible, we use individual ingredients, not pre-packaged combinations.
  • Although not all of our dishes are moderate in fat and sodium, we always offer something that is.
  • We always offer at least one entrée that is strictly vegan—containing no dairy products or eggs.

The Mouse’s plate.

Mock Beef Broccoli, Vegan Lasagna, Roasted Eggplant and Bell Pepper

Not bad, bearing in mind this was a hospital after all. I think in trying to lessen the salt and oil, the chef over seasoned the dishes slightly. In The Cat’s words, “kinda medicine-y” taste. But price was decent, and try try.

Enjoy. Eat well.
