Hawaii : Food Adventure

As promised, here’s a tidbit of our Hawaiian food adventure. The first day on the island was a food tour – they took us around honolulu and let us try about 15 different types of food in total… yes, it was a food marathon and food marathons are always fun times.

According to Guy Fieri (Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives Host), fresh poke is a local favorite and a must-try in Hawaii… So from the moment we settled in, we started on our hunt for poke… Ended up eating poke at least once a day!… So good. Seemed like there were endless seasoning combinations to the different types of fish available too.
