When Jeff and I travel, we like to enjoy the local food.
This is NOT a natural trait for Jeff, as he did not like trying new food when we first married. His first taste of Prime Rib didn't come until he went to dinner with me and my parents when he was 23.
Trying new food, particularly local favorites, is part of my heritage. I recall stopping at EVERY bakery in China Town to find the best almond cookie. And if it looks like a local food DIVE, we will stop and partake. . . .
Anyway, Hawaii was just a great big opportunity to try local food -- and for the most part, I got photos:
Above is a delicious Pineapple Burger from Kua'Aina in Haleiwa. There's a tasty grilled pineapple with grilled onion on this huge burger. We did manage to eat twice at this place! Shockingly, Jeff only had fries and cole slaw the last time -- may have had something to do with all the shrimp he ate the day before)
Not a great photo, but you'll get the point. This was my breakfast from the Hukilau Cafe. It's called a Loco Moco. There's a bed of white rice, a piece of mahi mahi, two eggs over easy and brown gravy. It's quite delicious and fairly unusual for this Haole.
