investigates: Cabarete, Dominican
Republic... a popular Kite Surfing
destination that is vegan friendly
Cabarete, DR… most people know
of this Caribbean destination for wind and
water sports, like kite-surfing,
wind-surfing, and some good old classic wave
surfing. But considering the rest of the Caribbean,
the last thing you would think of is vegan
food when going to Cabarete. So I was surprised
to find a great variety of vegetarian and
vegan friendly restaurants throughout this
town, so I just had to write about it and
Vegetarian and Veggie friendly Restaurants
that you should check out when in Cabarete,
has 2 sides. One is the beach scene and the
other is the town of Cabarete itself. There
are some good options in both.
At the beach I grabbed some
fresh veggies and fruits to sustain myself
at Sandals and Voyvoy, a
local Mexican restaurant, however there were
bigger restaurants all along the main street
behind the beaches.
And around town I was able
to find unique and vegan focused restaurants.
Fresh Mex, Cabarete, DR
Great option for Mexican food was Gorditos.
I was happy to see that the rice did not have
butter and that the beans were not cooked
with meat. The owners were really cool also
and were aware of veganism.

Flop Falafel, Cabarete, DR
My friends grabbed some sushi next door,
but I was able to find a hummus platter at
Flip Flop right when they opened doors at
lunch time. A protein packed life saver!

Fresh Cabarete, Cabarete, DR
I didn't see this restaurant online when
searching, but it was really one of the best!
They had a full service juice bar, vegetarian
desserts, and some great wraps.
I didn't get the address... if someone
knows please share under comments below.
This was my favorite! The owner and martial
artist Papo really put some love and creativity
into his dishes. You can tell that they really
care about the food that they make. It's an
island's style restaurant that serves some
pretty world class meals! :)

Cafe, Cabarete, DR
Before heading off on a trip to Gri-Gri
Lagoon we stopped at Claro Cafe to
get some food for the day. Their tofu scramble
with some hummus was pretty good!

This is one of the main party spots in town.
At night they have some fun Karaoke and some
dancing video-games. But this bar is also
a restaurant, so I grabbed the fruit platter
while relaxing on the beach.
