I've been in Hawaii for the last 4 days enjoying some amazing views and food. Everywhere you look on this island there is a new view to be seen and new foods to try. I'm here with my family of 8 and so far we have done a rafting boat tour, tubing, the Taste of Hawaii and hiked up the Napali coast. The scenery on the boat tour was great but getting there was not so fun. You had to hold on to the boat with ropes for your dear life so by the time we were all done, everyone was burnt and had sore hands and a sore butt. We got to see some amazing scenery and the spot where Mary J Blidge shot one of her videos at. Saturday we went tubing and got to see 5 underwater caves. Every tour we went on they served us sandwiches at the end of it cause we were all starving by then.
The Taste of Hawaii was my favorite part. We went to this beautiful garden area and it was almost like a food tour of Hawaii. They had chefs from around each island in Hawaii there and we got to sample all their wonderful food. My favorite was the beef with the egg on top. I've never had such tender beef in my life. It was served with rice and a hard boiled egg. The food at the Taste of Hawaii was 5 star quality and I've never taken pictures of such beautiful food before. Every booth there served their food on white paper plates minus the prawn below that was served on a wood bowl. So sorry guys you're going to have to see a lot of them in the following pictures. Oh yes, and the Mai Tais here are excellent.
I've got to try so many new foods I've never had before like this prawn. It was so messy it had some red sauce with it and they were hard to open. The sauce got all over my dress. Some other food I've got to try was poke, cavier, dragon fruit, lychee, oni, and sushi. The fruit here is the best. Right outside the condo we rented there's a coconut tree, lime tree, lemon tree, avocado tree, banana, and pineapple growing right out of the ground. Do you know how badly I wish I could win the lottery right now and move here? You wouldn't have to go to the grocery store to buy fruit! There's also chickens running around everywhere here.
Imagine tasting a lemon bar instead being mango.
These are soba noodles.
This dish was everyone's favorite. The beef was so tender and the egg yolk was cooked perfectly. The rice here has been so good I've been really wanting to get a rice maker.
