Every vegetarian’s dream is now in Fiji with the opening of Radisson Blu Resort Fiji’s first modern vegetarian restaurant called ‘Wild Thyme’.

This new food and beverage concept offers a modern vegetarian dining experience that vegetarians crave but rarely encounter in Fiji.

With “delectable à la carte” menus paired with vegan wines and bespoke cocktails, both vegetarians and vegans are catered for at the restaurant which lies by the hotel’s beachfront.

The ‘Wild Thyme’ menu is ultimately plant-based for vegetarians and vegans, immersing in an array of exotic flavours with a modern and stylish twist to the presentation of meals.

“All dishes are prepared freshly upon order, using authentic recipes with the finest local ingredients,” says a Radission Blu Resort statement.

“Delivered with impeccable service among intimate tropical surrounds, it is truly a modern dining experience first to Fiji and open for all.”

Andreas Reinhardt, Executive Chef at the Radisson Blu Resort Fiji said: “For non-vegetarians this is your chance for an exquisite dining experience keeping it meat free, be daring and try something new at Wild Thyme,”

On Thursday, April 28, members of the Radisson Blu team welcomed media and industry partners to the official launch of ‘Wild Thyme’ led by Mr Reinhardt.

Invited guests mingled during cocktails prior to the sit down three course dinner beginning with a crispy broccoli and spiced yogurt appetiser, selection of entrée, choice of main dishes followed by dessert using local chocolate and ingredients.

Some of the appetising dishes include heart of palm salad, flaky goats cheese filo and homemade gnocchi.

Able to seat 18 people at a time, the restaurant offers both adult only and family dining to accommodate guests.

“The anticipated launch of Wild Thyme was a success and we received excellent comments on the tasty vegetarian dishes by our invited guests,” Mr Reinhardt said.

“It is an exciting and unique dining concept foreign to Fiji and we are also able to cater for our vegetarian and vegan guests who stay at our hotel. “
