Tasty Vittles

To be quite honest with you, I am not such a big fan of the foods offered in Hawaii. To salty for me. We did run across a few things that were scrumdidlyumpous. Let me tell you about a few.
This is a picture from Ted's Bakery. They have what are called "Glazies" (upper right of picture), they are to die for. They kick butt over any donut that I have ever eaten. Kendall really liked the chocolate haapia cream pie.
These shrimp are from a road side stand called Romey's. The sign said we are not fast food, just food cooked really good and sometimes fast. We opted for the mild sweet and spicy. They were really good. A few days earlier we had tried shrimp from a shrimp truck called Giovanni's. They were good too. Kendall had the garlic shrimp ( he had to sleep facing the window) and I had the lemon butter. This is the pig from the Luau. It was good. It was the the only item at the luau that I cared for. If you go to the Polynesian Cultural Center, trust me, skip the luau. They really need to work on the food. I would have rather went to Golden Corral. Here is my $10 fruit smoothie. It was yummy!On the weekends these chicken stands pop up. They have the best rotisserie chicken. I don't know what they do to those chickens, but its delicious! On a side note, Hawaii has a chicken infestation. Chickens are running around everywhere. I wonder if the owners of the stands collect wild chickens? Hence the reason that they are only open on the weekends? One of our favorites was shaved ice from M. Matsumoto's. They are located on the North Shore. The shaved ice is awesome. We went back twice. Somebody in Utah needs to make these.


  1. Did you try them with or without the beans?

  2. Is that cream on the shaved ice? I love it that way. There was a place in Arkansas that did shaved ice like that, but I've never seen it anywhere else. YUM.
