My wife and I have been to Maui 5 times. I'm vegan, she's lacto-ovo. We love it so much we haven't been able to bring ourselves to try another island. It's such a wonderful place and a great place for vegetarians to visit. We're from the Chicago area, and 2 of our most favorite restaurants are on Maui:<br><br>
VEG OUT vegetarian in Haiku, and Maui Tacos (several locations) for cheap, fresh, Mexican fare with a unique Hawaiin twist. Other favorites: Polli's in Makawao has many items including their incredible vegan fajita's, BJ's pizza in Lahaina for a nice dinner with terrific local entertainment/musicians/singers, Cheez Burger in Paradise also in Lahaina has a good tofu burger, Bella Luna in/near Wailea for a beautiful sunset dinner, China boat in Kahana. In Paia there's a place (used to be called Pic-Nics) that has a terrific spinach-tofu burger, and they'll put together a picnic basket for you to take for a day trip.<br><br>
And our favorite of all is Curry-in-a-Hurry in Kahului for all veg Indian cuisine<br><br>
run by a wonderful couple Hans and Lori Lee. They are a must-see if you go to Maui.<br><br><a href="http://www.curryinahurrymaui.com/" target="_blank">http://www.curryinahurrymaui.com/</a><br><br>
And next to Curry-in-a-Hurry is one of several Down to Earth stores<br><br><a href="http://www.downtoearth.org/" target="_blank">http://www.downtoearth.org/</a> a vegetarian grocery chain with a carry-out buffet/deli.<br><br><br><br>
One more thing, last we knew Dr. Michael Klaper <a href="http://www.vegsource.com/klaper/" target="_blank">http://www.vegsource.com/klaper/</a> was still on Maui.<br><br>
Well that's just off the top of my head.<br><br><a href="http://www.vegetarianusa.com/city/Hawaii.html" target="_blank">http://www.vegetarianusa.com/city/Hawaii.html</a>

veg*ns have it relatively easy here. There are lots of options everywhere. Vegan, naturally, could be a little more challenging...

I vacationed on the Big Island in 2004, and had a great time. I hate eating out night after night, so I found a hotel with kitchens in the rooms. I planted myself in Hilo (the 'wet' side of the island) and took many hiking day trips. I visited the local farmer's market, and bought some bizarre stuff you can't find on the mainland. I found the Kona side of the island (the dry side) to be a bit too much like any other beach-oriented place I've been, so thankfully I didn't stay too long on that side. If you decide to vacation in Hilo, send me a PM and I'll give you some hints on where to stay/what to do.<br><br><br><br>
Have a great trip!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sunny.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sunny:">

Thanks so much for your advice and about PMing you. As soon as I get my trip together I may well do that. Thanks so much
