Olu'Olu Café

Restaurants & Cafés


You'll first get sucked in by the garlic edamame beans (see below). We have no idea what goes into that garlic sauce but it turns what is usually a fairly bland dish into something we now crave. Then you'll be seduced by the crispy vegan gyoza and the creamy 'detox curry'. But the more you visit Olu'Olu Café, it's not just the 'vegan junk food', as the owners call it on their blog, that will inspire you to return, it's also the atmosphere. The Hawaiian theme of the restaurant is carried through in the surfboards suspended from the ceiling, the surf films on the TV, and the sign on the door that invites you to come inside even if you're not wearing a shirt or shoes. You're also welcome to bring along your pet pooch. They have a wonderfully extensive menu, all translated into English, that brings to life soya-based dishes with coconut milk, veggies and brown rice, along with a variety of pastas and other vegan delights. On the drinks side, you'll find smoothies, 'wheat' coffee (made from grains like rye and barley), and brown rice vinegar mixes. The only stress you'll feel when eating here is how on earth you're going to fit in a bowl of vegan ice cream at the end.
