Aloha readers!

I’m back from Hawaii and just brimming with stories of my food adventures in this island paradise. The cuisine in Hawaii is amazing—my favorite aspects of Hawaiian food are the fresh fish, the various Asian influences, and the abundance of refreshing tropical fruit.

Over the next few weeks I’ll share some of my discoveries and dining experiences with all of you. Some topics will include enjoying Ahi Poke at the Sansei Seafood Restaurant, trying a Puka Dog with Hawaiian mustard and pineapple relish, enjoying a plate lunch at Me BBQ, indulging in fried rice with two over-easy eggs for breakfast at the Rainbow Drive In, watching kalua pork being unearthed from an underground oven and sampling poi at a luau, and sipping endless Mai Tais and Blue Hawaiians. The peak of my culinary enjoyment in Hawaii was sitting at the chef’s counter at Alan Wong’s, my new favorite restaurant. It was the most amazing meal I’ve ever eaten—a truly exceptional experience that I can’t wait to share with you.

I hope you all enjoy the stories to come as I bring you along through my week-long trip to Hawaii. Mahalo!
