Vegan in Maui - Pa'ia

Do you like Whole Foods? If you like the selection, but you think the atmosphere is too capitalistic and the man is bringing you down, then you'll love Mana Foods. Walking in from the blinding sun will have your tiny pupils working overtime to dilate enough for you to see in the dimly-lit store. Soon you'll see the organic and local foods stacked beyond reach up to the ceiling. Make your way through the labyrinth of aisles into the natural vitamin and body care section and you'll be equally overwhelmed... in a good way of course. This was a perfect place to pick up picnic supplies for the Road to Hana. See for more information.

After surviving the Road to Hana we stopped in at Fresh Mint, a vegetarian Vietnamese restaurant also in Pa'ia. We walked in and were greeted by one of the Vietnamese owners. I always assume it'll be authentic when the person taking our orders speaks just enough English to get the job done. We ordered Pad Thai and a vegetable soup of some sort. The meal was amazing and cost less than $20 total. Actually, every meal so far has been less than $20. I think this has something to do with the five meals a day rather than the normal three. The less we eat at each meal, the more food we can try.

Also... vegan wedding cake. Half chocolate and half vanilla. Cake testing is fun. BTW this is the after shot of the cake. It looked a little nicer than this before we started.
