Kaya’s Kitchen — A favorite for vegan dining

One of my favorite vegetarian/vegan restaurants is Kaya’s Kitchen in Belmar, NJ.  I first discovered this restaurant when my daughter and I were visiting relatives in the area.  We simply googled vegetarian restaurants, and Kaya’s Kitchen came up.  It looked good so we gave it a try.  Now I try to get there whenever I am in the area!

The food is fresh, organic, and the vegetarian entrees can easily be made vegan.  And for those of you who are Gluten Free, they have plenty of GF options as well.  I recently enjoyed a dinner at Kaya’s with 3 non-vegetarians and they also enjoyed their dinner!


We started with the Turkish Delight, which consisted of plenty of hummusKayas, falafel, babaganouj,tabouleh, olives, pita bread and tahini — Delish and just enough for an appetizer to share or even for a meal.




Kayas2For dinner I tried the Coconut Pineapple Curry which included sweet potatoes, vegetables and pineapple in a mild curry sauce all served over brown rice.  As I’ve been here quite a few times, I have tried several of the entrees and even some of their sandwiches — all very good.  Plus, the vegan cupcakes are terrific!
