Vegetarian recomendations?


Am heading to Vanuatu in 11 more sleeps (Yes I am counting down) and we are staying at the Sunset Bungalows.

I am just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on good places to go for vegetarian food?

Lots of places will have vego option on the menu or will concoct something for you. They have veg pizza at La Casa (not far from Bon Marche supermarket at Numbatu) but also the ladies at the back of the markets have laplap with island spinach and coconut cream on top and things like that. You may even get a vegie curry and rice there. You will find a great variety of fruit at the markets to take back to your bungalow for snacks.

Jill's will also have mexican style beany cheesy things available too.

Hi Sejie....Like yourself,we prefer vegetarian food...Tho', must admit we do like our fish as well....

However,we were the same looking for good vegetarian meals....

We eat at Gopinatha's/Hari Krishna temple once a week here in Sydney and it is so good and cheap....Tho' you will never find anything like that in Port Vila...

What PeaceandLight has mentioned is about as close as you will get to vego in Port Vila....Vegie dishes is kind of limited....

The Melanesian feast at Tara Beach Resort is a great night out with local string band,kava tasting and quite a variety of vegie dishes to choose from...

All income for their feasts supports the local village which is great.......!!

We were fortunate in that we had a kitchenette,so we cooked our own meals most of the time....Vegies and seafood mix compliments of Au Bon Marche Numabatu Supermarket....And saved a heap doing it this way....!!
