When I travel I like to find the tastiest food I can't eat at home. Sometimes this can lead to fun adventures and sometimes it just leads to my travel partner's family home.
Should you find yourself in Hawaii here are some excellent local dishes you should try. If you can, make it out to a Luau and try these dishes there. Especially the pork. Something about the slow cooking and the earthy flavor of the smoke combines with the cabbage and all the other trimmings. OMG I am hungry just thinking about it!
You take a patty of sticky rice and add a burger and eggs over easy. Add some gravy and indulge!
The traditional way is to roast the pig in an underground oven. Smoke and salt make up the rest of the flavor.
One of my favorites! Take rice add spam. Doesn't get easier or more delicious. If you haven't tried it, you don't know what you are missing.
Another staple dish made from the catch of the day. I like the tuna poke, but I was told they can make it out of any fish.
Mango and papaya centers add local flare to this Portuguese donut. MMMM.
