Avo Curry Salad at Under the Bodhi Tree, Mauna Lani

With Pumpkin Seeds & Pumpkin Curry Dressing

One bright & beautiful Tuesday morning last month, I set off on Saddle Road towards my lunchtime destination on the other side of the island. I had an engagement to meet someone to interview & photograph for my “Portrait & Dialogue with Vegans” series and I also was excited for a vegan meal at Under the Bodhi Tree.

The salad was simply delicious and my only regret is that I did not try more dishes here!  Next time I am on the Big Island I will save room for at least a couple of delicious vegan meals here! You can see some of my dialogue & photography with one of the cafe owners here.

On a side note, there is also a delightful water play area for children in the Shops at Mauna Lani that my son took to immediately. I must note that he was fully clothed when we arrived at this open air shopping complex.  But once I saw the play fountains I knew what was coming.  Later on several kids showed up specifically to play in the water here.  Very cool little area!
