The Three Fat Pigs


I mentioned in a previous post that I was in Waikoloa on the Kohala Coast, west side, of Big Island. Looking for dinner one night walking distance of our hotel we found The Three Fat Pigs.

The restaurant does not cater to vegans or even vegetarians, but has one wonderful dish that is already vegan on the menu.


My tastebuds and tummy were very happy for this Acorn Squash. It was so much yummy that I didn’t even finish it. But I enjoyed every bite. “Whole roasted and stuffed with sautéed local root vegetables, sesame, ginger white beans and quinoa. Served with curried coconut gravy & saved coconut.” This is the menu description. If that didn’t make your mouth water, then, well, I don’t know what.

And with this lovely outdoor spot to enjoy while eating!


It was a wonderful find and I was grateful this restaurant was more thoughtful than my hotel.

Due to the fact that there was only one amazing vegan option, The Three Fat Pigs gets four out of five vegan cupcakes. I would go back just for this dish. Yummers!
