I just became a vegan with the help of my friend Leanna and watching Alicia on Oprah. My husband and I go out on date nights every week and he showed his support by taking me to a vegan place called Simple Joy. It was awesome, delicious, and interesting. I live on Oahu so there isn't a lot of places like this but this one is my favorite.
Down to Earth (http://www.downtoearth.org/) They have the best buffet style eats, and vegan manapuas, shakes and baked goods are vegan. I like the one in Manoa next to UH.
Whole Foods at Kahala Mall is good too.
Loving Hut, you like Simple Joy so you'll like their food also Vietnamese influenced. One on Pensacola St. and on King Street.
Spices (http://spiceshawaii.com/default.aspx) you'll like too. Owner was very knowledgable about the vegan diet. Although this place is not all vegan he can pretty much turn anything on the menu vegan.
Those are the top choices. Then of course you can head down to Ala Moana and hit up Macaroni Grill where you can create your own pasta, and CPK where you can order a vegan pizza (thin crust, veggies, no cheese), or go to Spaghetti Factory where you can have the marinara sauce.
Oh yea!!! KOKUA MARKET!!! I totally forgot. They are great! It's actually right down the street from Down to Earth near UH Manoa. They have great raw food. The chef is raw too and actually worked at a famous raw food restaurant in Cali. Their steamed taro in the refrigerated grab and go food section is so ono.
