Greens & Vines

This is my sister Sylvia’s new restaurant, Greens & Vines, which is located on the corner of Ward and Kapiolani in Honolulu.  There are seven parking stalls on the ground floor inside the building that are free for customers.  Others can find parking on the street.

Here’s a shot of the indoor dining area.  As you can see, it was packed on a Saturday night.

Gigi’s dessert:  Organic tangerine cheesecake.  (Tangerines, cashews, almonds, dates, agave, coconut oil)

We didn’t get around to trying the other entrees, Hawaiian coffee and herbal teas, but this will be an incentive to return to this fabulous restaurant.  It really is a unique place offering unique delicious food.  CONGRATS, SYLVIA!  I AM SO PROUD OF YOU, SIS!!!

    Looks tasty. Maybe Sylvia has a website with menus? I “binged” it yesterday and saw many other good reviews, but didn’t see the restaurant’s website. Was the living lasagna warm or cold? It’s on my list for the next visit! DrumMajor

      The lasagna is chilled. No food is cooked. That’s why the sign says “Raw, Vegan, Gourmet.” Sylvia believes that cooking destroys enzymes and other nutrients.
