Craving Some Good Hawaiian Eats (Part 1)

28 Jan

Ey Brah, howzit, we go get someting to eat, yeah? In case you have never heard a local Hawaiian speak Pidgin (English-Hawaiian slang or some may argue it’s the language spoken in Hawaii, because no one really speaks the Hawaiian language), it’s awesome. On Oahu, what’s even more awesome is the food. We have been feasting like Royal Hawaiian Kings and Queens, thanks to Trip Advisor Marshall and Food Advisor Face who got the inside scoop (from friends and Yelp) on some really authentic and delicious Hawaiian places that are a must eat for any tourist or local alike. Since my cravings have been on overload, I have to share…

    OMG………………… TOO delicious. I am in training so watching what I eat, with the consequence I am feeling desperately hungry after reading this blog. Truly wonderful.

      Yes, I am in Heaven and Paradise 🙂 What are you training for? I hope I’m not making you too hungry…

        Skiing. We are in the middle of the season and I do a bit of (amateur) ski racing. Great fun but very different from the delights of Hawaii and its cuisine.

        Yes, the snow brings a different type of paradise for me. I love when the snow feels like your carving through ice cream, have a great time and win some races ! 🙂

        Thank you. I’ve got a GS mext Saturday and a Downhill on Sunday. If I survive, I’ll let you know.
        Winning? Not much chance but I love it for the thrill and, let’s face it, for the danger too.
