Why don’t we talk about the fish in Hawaii?

 

Hawaii May 2012, this is the best quality fish

 

We produce some the best quality fish from the waters sorrunding Hawaii

 

Hawaii May 2012, I just drool when I see this kind of fresh fish

 

It’s so fantastic, that you don’t need to cook it

 

Hawaii May 2012, it just kinda taste like the ocean, clean, salty fish

 

Here’s a few assorted photos of the different raw fish that we ate, just about every day while in Honolulu,

even though we were not happy about the prices ...

 

Hawaii May 2012, limu ahi poke, sea weed ahi raw fish

 

We like to call this poke, it doesn’t have to be fish

 

Hawaii May 2012, poke doesn't have to be fish, it can be little octopus too, nice and crunchy!!

 

enjoy!  We Did!!

I’ve mentioned Zippy’s many times here at Chef Talk. 

They are a family restaurant on Oahu and now Maui. 

You can order from the take out counter or

sit down in the full table service section of most of the locations.

 

Hawaii May 2012, Loco Moco from Zippy's, YUMMY !!

 

You’ll find local favorites like Loco Moco, which is a Hamburger patty sitting in a bed of steamed white rice (or brown if your health conscious) topped by an egg and then smothered in brown gravy.  Sometimes you can get fried rice too…

oh yeah, MAC SALAD!!  OH MY!!  There's something about brown gravy and mayo ... this was my breakfast one day at the beach, I was VERY happy that day ...

 

Hawaii May 2012, Teri Steak (mini) dinner at Zippy's

 

Teri Steak (this is a mini, only because it has only one scoop rice) can you see that Mister K~girl couldn't wait to eat?

 

Hawaii May 2012, somen salad at zippy's

 

Cold Somen Salad, just that, a simple salad, cold noodles, scrambled egg, SPAM,

cucumber, Kamaboko (a steamed fish cake) green onions and a nice soy sauce based dressing

 

Hawaii May 2012, YUM we like out fruit punch in Hawaii

 

Hawaii May 2012, guava juice !!

 

We need something to wash this all down with…

Fruit Punch and Guava Juice are very popular drinks in Hawaii

 

Hawaii May 2012, portuguese sausage eggs and rice at zippy's

 

 

We forgot breakfast, Portuguese Sausage, Eggs and Rice (oops, where da rice sista?)

Folks in Hawaii will say that as one if it were one word

 

Hawaii May 2012, chocolate haupia or coconut pudding cake

 

How about some dessert?

(again, Mister K~girl can you wait  braddah?)

Above a slice of Chocolate Haupia Cake, oh my!!

Most of the restaurants have their signature bakery attached, Napoleon’s  

 

Hawaii May 2012, Apple Napples from Napoleon Bakkery within Zippy's Restaurant in Hawaii

 

What is that? A turnover?

No, Apple Napples

(I like the Coconut one, or cherry or blueberry cream or chocolate)

We ate these at the beach, so that's why it looks like some are MISSING from the box...

 

Hawaii May 2012, chocolate filled Long Johns from Napoleon's Bakery in Honolulu Hawaii

 

My husband loves this one, Chocolate filled Long John, no icing on please

 

Hawaii May 2012, Chocolate Dobash Cake

 

This is my all time fav, Chocolate Dobash Cake

I'm not a big chocolate fan like some women, but this cake ...

it's a very light sponge and filled as well as frosted with something like chocolate pudding

Not too sweet, but just right

Sista, Eat the street looks like fun, I don't think anyone in Hawaii knows how to say SMALL BITES. Where is that located on the island, it looks to be in a more local location. It's always tradition to stop for Garlic Shrimp at the Shrimp truck in Hale' iwa. I remember long ago going over the small bridge before you got to the town of Hale'iwa, there was a sign on the side of the road saying watch for Cane trucks. When we eat the garlic shrimp, everyone has to eat it or they would never make it home in the same car, The Garlic stays on you like stink on a pig............Love your trip report, when I read the report makes me want to go back to Hawaii...............................ChefBillyB

Sista K, the Portagee Sausage at Zippy's is good, some of the best on the island. How come no eat Portagee bean soup at Zippy's not to many places make it no a days.............

ChefBillyB, Braddah!!

 

We didn’t make the shrimp trucks (Mr. K~girl is highly allergic), but we did OTHER stops,

more of that later so stay tuned …

da Portagee Bean Soup at Zippy’s …

 

Hawaii May 2012, Zippy's Portuguese Bean Soup, I like mine WAY better ...

 

Das why we when eat one mini Teri Steak and Somen Salad so we can have one small soup (and dessert)

But you know, I tink so who eva’ when make that one, man… was junk (I like minez one!)

 

That Eat The Street Food Truck Rally that I went to was in Waipio by da Costco, inside the Tony Auto Group on Ka Uka Blvd … was right on!!  No more roach coaches for us folks in Hawaii ... I when see plenty peoples I when know …

(I did a hyperlink so that everyone could look that up)

... And no, I don't think that we do ANYTHING small in Hawaii my friend ...

The Friday before Mother’s Day we ventured out to Chinatown. 

We both worked in the Downtown business District,

which in Honolulu they are pretty much in the same areas. 

Needless to say, we both had many a lunch from the different food vendors. 

I couldn’t begin to tell you the names of any of them, we just knew where to go.

Trying to find a place to park was the first order of the day, and not pay an arm and a leg to do so. 
We found a metered stall down on Maunkea & King street and then hoofed it. 

I didn’t get a lei on May Day, so my husband was going to buy me one, but WOW!! 

There are a lot of lei stands along Maunkea, but what I found out

was that there has been a flower shortage therefore driving up the cost. 

A single plumeria lei was $6. 

My sister and I would go in our front yard and make leis from the flowers on our trees all the time. 

I took a pass. 

Onward. 

 

Hawaii May 2012, Chinatown In Honolulu Hawaii

 

Hawaii May 2012, Chinatown in Honolulu Hawaii

 

It’s fun to poke around in these shops

 

Hawaii May 2012, goodies from Chinatown, Roast Pork, Char siu or BBQ Pork and some Duck, I think it might be under that mountain of porky delight ...

 

We got some Roast Pork, Char Siu and Duck, my fav!! 

 

Hawaii May 2012, butter mochi in Chinatown Honolulu Hawaii

 

Let’s not forget dessert

 

Then we had to find our dim sum place, and funny enough I looked up and that’s the name of it, Dim Sum House!  We gathered our booty and got back in the car and headed for the beach.  We wound up at Kewalo Basin Park which is next to where the sport fishing boats go out.

 

Hawaii May 2012, Kewalo Basin Park, great place for lunch al fresco

 

It was so beautiful, right on the water …

 

Hawaii May 2012, Dim Sum House in Downtown Honolulu Hawaii

 

 

Let’s have lunch …

We had agreed at the start of this adventure in Paradise,

that on the weekends we would forgo the beach,

only because it gets uber crowded. 

We took a ride out to the North Shore via Kaneohe...

 

Hawaii May 2012

 

Let’s start off with an early lunch at Genki Sushi

This location in Kaneohe isn’t far from where we used to live, so we ate here often. 

Every time since we’ve left, we make a pilgrimage.

It use to be BYOB, but that is no longer the case, oh well, it was a little early for a beer.

 

Hawaii May 2012

 

You can sit either at the counter in front of the conveyer belt going around the restaurant,

carrying those tasty small plates, or at a booth, we prefer a booth, more room to spread out.

So grab your chopsticks and some pickled ginger and let’s grind braddahs and sistas.

 

 

Hawaii May 2012

 

 

We usually begin our sushi-o-rama with a bowl of Miso Soup and Edamame, then move on from there.

I know that it’s considered boorishly American, but we do so love our Wasabi

mixed in a small dipping dish with some Shoyu or Soy Sauce

(and no they didn’t have any Aloha Brand, bummer)

and then dunk your chopstick full of goodness in it, YUM!! 

My husband likes his, “nose hair singe-ingly” hot with Wasabi.

 

 

Hawaii May 2012

 

 

The skilled Shokunin or sushi chef, made some scrumptious morsels

Above is Ahi Poke, a little spicy but so delicious.

 

 

Hawaii May 2012

 

Sushi isn’t just fish, seedless Cucumber is a favorite of ours

 

Hawaii May 2012

 

Hawaii May 2012

 

And it’s not all rice either

Here we have Baked Mussels and deep fried Chicken in a lovely sweet-savory-tangy-garlic-soy-sauce

 

Hawaii May 2012

 

You pay by the plate color and we did 19 in total, that was NOT a record for us

It’s so nice in this type of restaurant, you eat a little, drink some tea, watch the different plates going by waiting for your desired dish, you chat, and plain have a good time at your leisure, no rush and not expensive either.

I wanted to take a moment and let everyone here at Chef Talk

know that I have not altered any of the photos that you see within this thread. 

It's all just unadulterated honest good food. 

I mean come on, how fantastic does it all look. 

I don't have a fancy camera, I wanted you all at CT to see

and experience the foods from where I come from. (if we just had smell-o-vison)

I've been reading all these magazine and newspaper articles about

Hawaii foods and that it's a pinnacle on the culinary landscape,

but I felt that way from a long time ago! 

I just could never convince anybody of it!

Let me also say that I have no affiliation with any shop,

restaurant, food truck, vendor, conglomerate, government, or anything that you could dream up.

I have not been paid, nor did I receive any type of gratuity.

I just love food, I love to cook, and I love where I come from, HAWAII!

ALOHA!

One of our Sundays in Honolulu, I can't recall which one off hand, but ...

We took a drive and found ourselves looking for lunch late in the afternoon.

We were cruzing down Beretania Street and the next thing I know,

my husband is pulling into Pier 38 or "the Fishing Village", yeah baby!!

One of our haunts when we lived here was Uncle's Fish Market & Grill,

they hadn't been open for very long prior to our departure,

but long enough for us to visit several times. 

It's nothing fancy, another place where you look up at the board,

tell the nice lady what you want to eat, pay for it, get your tray of food and find a place to sit. 

It was always crowded!

 

 

Hawaii May 2012

 

But...

they've gone glam on us since we've been gone,

Now it's table service and a full bar!

(had a lovely white from New Zealand with my lunch)

with that said, it's still an easy going, casual, local joint with super good fish

So...

Let's EAT!!!

 

Hawaii May 2012

 

Hawaii May 2012

 

Hawaii May 2012

 

let's start off with some pupus or apps..

Tako or Octopus Poke; Sashimi or raw Tuna, really any type of fish but this is Ahi, think Carpaccio; Ahi Poke, a raw Tuna salad if you will (did you see those chopsticks going in for a bite before I could snap a pic)

 

Hawaii May 2012

 

Garlic Ahi, oh my gravy, that's my husband's lunch...

 

Hawaii May 2012

 

Hawaii May 2012

 

this is MINE!!!  ALL MINE!!  HA! (he's allergic, poor thing)

Opakapaka or Pink Snapper with a Mushroom and Lobster Sauce

Do you see those nuggets of goodness?

Never and I mean never have I had a "Two for one plate" as the wait staff called it.

Two nice sized fillets of fish and then topped with easily a decent sized slipper lobster, and oh yeah an ONO (delicious) Mushroom Sauce.  I could not finish, but then I really wanted dessert.  There's a cold case off to the side of the restaurant with the cakes already sliced and waiting to be served (I had already checked that out as we waited for our starters).

 

Hawaii May 2012

 

Hawaii May 2012

 

Chocolate cake for Mister K~Girl and Japanese Cheesecake for the girl.

I had never heard of that kind of cheesecake before, the wait staff all said that was their fav. 

(we got excellent service mainly to the fact that we were the only ones there)

Pier 38 is where the Hawaii Fish Auction is located, so man, you just cannot get any fresher fish than right here.  The commercial fishing boats pull up not 150 feet from Uncle's front door. 

I would say to you that if you find yourself in Honolulu,

GO!!!  EAT!!!

Hawaii May 2012, Dole Plantation in Hawaii

 

Why don't we take another ride, it's the weekend and the beach will be PACKED!

Not terribly far from my Sister-in-laws house is the Dole Plantation, and you know what? 

Neither my husband nor I had ever been there. 

 

Hawaii May 2012, very different types of Pineapples in the gardens at Dole Plantation

Hawaii May 2012, we feed the Koi Fish at Dole Plantation, fun...

 

We walked through the gardens that they have with several different

varietals of Pineapples, along with their histories.

Then it was over to the Koi Pond to feed the fish, What a blast!

 

Hawaii May 2012, Pineapple Dole Whip, BRAIN FREEZE!

 

It was a little warm that day, so we went inside, did a little souvenir shopping

and had a "Dole Whip" which is like a Pineapple soft serve, delish. 

Watch out, BRAIN FREEZE...

 

Hawaii May 2012, Banh Mi from Ba-Le sandwich shop, I waited almost five years for this!

 

On our way back to the house, we stopped and got my all time favorite sandwich

Banh Mi at Ba-le Sandwich Shop, YUM-O!! 

I have been waiting for this for almost five years! 

I savored each and every bite!

 

Hawaii May 2012, Chinese take out from Ginger House, OOPS, we ate it all, sorry

 

We got take out dinner for the fam at Ginger House,

Well, it's our last full day in Hawaii.

A friend has asked us to lunch

He says that it's for the Military, active duty and retirees

Schooners, Where?  It's under the Ford Island Bridge...

We head out and then I remember, oh my gosh,

it's Memorial Day!

 

Hawaii May 2012, last stop, Pearl Harbor on Memorial Day

 

Pearl Harbor is going to be so over run but what a pleasant surprise

The restaurant is just one big covered lanai (porch) overlooking a marina

with the Waianae Mountain range in the far background, WOW!

 

Hawaii May 2012, Huli Huli Chicken at Schooner's next to Pearl Harbor

 

... and the food was pretty good.  I had the Huli Huli chicken 

our friend and my husband both had the Kalua Pig Plate (they gobbled it down so fast, I could get a pix)

 

 

Hawaii May 2012, Nico's Pier 38 in Honolulu Hawaii

 

 

 

Our last meal in Hawaii as back down at Pier 38

this time I asked my sister-in-law where she wanted to go 

she nominated Nico's and was quickly seconded by her husband

it's right on the Harbor, what better place to be for our last meal in Honolulu

I just realized that this is another restaurant that has the wide open patio

 

 

 

Hawaii May 2012, Ahi or Tuna Poke Sampler @ Nico's Pier 38 in Honolulu Hawaii

 

The Poke Sampler was very nice, Ahi or Tuna done three different ways,

Spicy, Shoyu Onion and Seaweed, Oh Yeah Babe, that's the stuff!! 

As a garnish, if you will, they placed tiny Steamed Oysters around the plate...

 

Hawaii May 2012, fried Calamari @ Nico's Pier 38 in Honolulu Hawaii

 

Fried Calamari for the table, just a squeeze of lemon for me, YUM!

 

 

Hawaii May 2012, Furikake pan seared Ahi or Tuna @ Nico's Pier 38 in Honolulu Hawaii

 

We ordered three Furikake pan seared Ahi plates (always the two scoops rice)

 

Hawaii May 2012, Opah or Moon fish with a saffron cream sauce @ Nico's Pier 38 in Honolulu Hawaii

 

and one Opah or Moon Fish, the catch of the day, with a Saffron cream sauce

 

I've come to the end of our month long respite from the desert

on the sandy shores of Hawaii Nei, my beloved Hawaii

I've appreciated everyone reading this thread

and I hope that someday in the not too far future,

you too will be able to enjoy my Islands.

Ooooh Dole Pineapple whips! AFAIK the only other place to get them is is Disney World. I am however ashamed to admit I bounced around in a pineapple field like a total fudgie picking pineapples on a tour in the rain. (hangs head in shame)

Duck, Loco moco and Poke....Yum.

I gained five pounds reading this thread.

Self-made billionaire David Murdock, who owns Castle & Cooke, said he would keep his home on Lanai and the right to build a wind farm, a controversial project that would place windmills on as many as 20 square miles of the island and deliver power to Oahu through an undersea cable. Murdock said in a statement that selling Lanai was not an impulsive decision, but he has been looking for a buyer who would have the right enthusiasm, commitment and respect for the island's residents. "I have learned in life that change is inevitable and can be quite positive when guided in the right direction," Murdock said.

 

The island boasts unspoiled charm with 30 miles of paved roads, 400 miles of unpaved roads and no traffic lights. According to the Hawaii Tourism Authority, more than 26,000 people visited the island from January to April of this year, a 6 percent decline from the same period last year. The utilities commission is reviewing the prospective deal because it involves indirectly transferring public utilities Castle & Cooke owns on the island -- a water company, a bus and shuttle service, and the island's wastewater utility. Castle & Cooke asked for interim approval by June 26.

 

Above is quote from LA Observed by Mark Lacter

 

Yeah, we got that on our IPad yesterday, very interesting?

I just hope that Murdock chose the right buyer and that

Larry will do right by those folks.

I know lots of people from Lanai and they are all so nice.

so, i've been thinking for all you spamhead maniacs, maybe a line of spam products...here's a few thoughts;...

 

~ the patron saint of spam...dashboard statue

~ spam sandals...(maybe call them 'spammies')

~ spam toothpaste

~ spam candles...smells like grilled spam when lit

~ since a girl can't ever have too many accessories...earrings, bracelets, pendants, and of course a spam tiara

~ edible undies...is that pushing it?

~ eau de spam  perfume essence, body lotion and soap and skin care and shine hair care products
