Craving Some Good Hawaiian Eats (Part 2)

29 Jan

Les get togeddah an’ talk story (chit-chat) ’bout da ono grinds (tasty food) dat brok da mout (tastes delicious)? In my last post (http://cravensavor.com/2013/01/28/), I mentioned how Hawaiians spoke Pidgin, but I forgot to mention that tourists are NOT allowed to speak Pidgin (only type 😉 yeah?) unless you want to get beat up. That is no joke, and neither is how incredible the food has been on my trip. So, I’m continuing Part 2 of my Framavings (Freakin’ Amazing Cravings) in Hawaii:

The Ice Cream Cake was Incredible!! And although I didn’t get to try any other flavor like the Smud Pie, Knock Me Up on the Blower, More than a Mouthful, Prisoner of My Mind, Functioning Prostate, Buffy’s Aural Massage, or Come Here Little, they looked and sounded pretty appetizing.

Craving a Mai Tai, PokÄ“, and Hakone Buffet

What’s the first thing I crave when getting to Hawaii? A Mai Tai, which I ordered virgin, and PokÄ“, which I ordered with a Chinese vegetable spring rolls appetizer with sweet chili sauce from the Mai Tai Bar at our hotel (Royal Hawaiian). PokÄ“ is a raw salad and is also a Hawaiian verb for “section” or “to slice or cut;” the island pokÄ“ trio we ordered came with three variations: octopus, shrimp, and ahi. Not long after; however, we were ready for dinner and headed to Hakone Restaurant at the Prince Resorts Hawaii for authentic Japanese food. Hakone offers a wide variety of Japanese cuisine, including assorted sashimi, salad, appetizer and entree buffet, sushi bar with a chef preparing handrolls and sushi a la carte, and a dessert station. My cravings were definitely satisfied.
