A Note From Joscelyn Abreu
Hawaii is a melting pot for many cultures and the cuisine has flavors influenced from countries all around the world. Most people who visit Hawaii for the first time may get a taste of the traditional food at a Luau, but the food locals eat goes beyond kalua pork and poi (mashed fermented taro root). There’s a large Asian population, so you’ll find a fusion of popular Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Filipino, and Portuguese dishes (just to name a few) to more unique dishes, like loco moco—a hamburger patty served over rice and topped with brown gravy and a fried egg. Get a taste of Aloha as we celebrate the flavors of Hawaii, from the expected to the unexpected.
