Mocha Java Cafe, Honolulu
Our new favorite place to eat when in the Ward area is Mocha Java Cafe in Ward Centre. We are trying to eat vegetarian these days and this place has a very nice selection of vegetarian dishes to try!
Up at the top is the Vegetarian Szechuan Stir Fry – Tofu, peppers, and onions in a shoyu based sauce. If you are afraid of heat, don’t worry…this is a very mild dish.
Here is the Vegetarian Burrito – Whole wheat tortilla filled with vegetarian beans, potatoes, peppers, onions, served with brown rice, salad, and salsa.
This below is the Veggie Stir Fry – Italian veggies, bean sprouts, cabbage, with shoyu based sauce, served with brown rice.
Whenever we’ve come here there seems to be at least two homemade soups on special. Here is a cup of Italian Vegetable Soup that we got to share.
Next is one of my favorites, Vegetarian Curry Chapati – Italian veggies and potatoes in a curry sauce, wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla, served with chutney, brown rice, and salad.
On the outside the Chapati below looks just like the Vegetarian Burrito, but inside it is very different. It is a mild Indian style curry coating all of the veggies inside. This makes for a very satisfying and hearty meal!
And finally, here is the Vegetarian Hash – Red potatoes, pepper, onions, crumbled veggie burger, topped with low fat cheese and served with sour cream. If you like potatoes, this is the dish for you!
If any of you are vegetarians looking for somewhere to eat on Oahu, this is a great place to try. Or if you are just concerned about your health and want to try eating healthier this is also the place for you.
For any of the dishes that uses eggs, you can replace it with either egg whites or Egg Beaters for a small additional charge. Also, the brown rice, whole wheat tortillas, and toss salad (instead of mac), make Mocha Java Cafe a great place to eat for any meal of the day!
