Ed had coconut pancakes with Portuguese sausage at the World Famous Ken’s Pancake House. They even had coconut syrup (the white one). I tried the Guava syrup, but it was not for me.
We had L&L Hawaiian barbeque in Honolulu the day we went to Pearl Harbor. Hawaiian barbeque is not slow cooked like on the mainland. It was heavily seasoned, thin sliced and cooked in a skillet. We had chicken, beef ribs and beef steak. It was served with a heaping helping of rice and either garden salad or macaroni salad. So much food!
We went to a Noni fruit and cattle farm. I’ve done research with Noni fruit in ground beef. I took more pictures of Noni fruit and Noni trees than anything. More about that in another blog post.
Mixed-breed cattle in Hawaii, like these, are called Poi dogs
These cattle eat grass and the Noni fruit from the trees. The Noni farmer loves it because the cows keep the trees pruned so it’s easier to harvest the fruit.
At the Noni farm, we also learned about Korean Natural Farming. I am going to do some more research on the subject. It was very intriguing.
I am not normally a big grass-fed beef gal, but this was delicious!
Our new friends from the Noni farm shared home-grown avocados, papaya, and tangelos (a cross of an orange and a tangerine). And, of course, a Noni fruit.
We always visit the grocery store when we travel. We head right to the meat case and see how things look.
Hawaiian meat counters look a lot like those on the mainland, but remember that most of the red meat has traveled thousands of miles.
A more local choice was Big Island Beef that is raised right on the island.
|Chicken feet are very popular in Asian cultures. I had never seen them in the meat case, though.|
|Beef casing. I guess for making sausage.|
Pigs feet. I have seen these on the mainland.
Beef tongue. I’ve seen this one on the mainland, too.
I know this post has been quite different from most my previous posts, but I really enjoyed our trip. We learned so much and had such a wonderful time. I am planning a trip to Florida in a few weeks. I’m sure I’ll have some pictures of food from that trip, too.
