Vacation Notice- Oahu

Wednesday, March 28, 2007

Aloha fair foodies,

Brownie Points Blog is taking out some Hawaii time on the island of Oahu.

We’re in for the wedding of our Japan friends, with Oahu serving as the perfect middle meeting ground for Oregon and Japan- lucky us!

Several culinary gems have already revealed themselves to us: Portuguese doughnuts, amazing fish, and the best Chinese food I have ever tasted. We’ll get those polished up in the next couple days for some blog post show-n-tell.

On the agenda are some busy wedding celebration days, to be followed by island excursions tracking down Giovanni’s shrimp truck in North Shore, slurping on some shave ice, and searching out the Poke Stop.

Let us know if you try the shave ice with the beans at Matsumoto’s. I didn’t love it, though their shave ice with softserve ice cream rocks. The place has so many ordering rules it’s like a Hawaiian Soup Nazi, but worth it. We got great poke at an Asian market-little mall sorta place with lots of small shops, near Waikiki.

Just had to say I discovered you through notmartha, I think, in my quest to perfect my marshmallow technique. Love your blog, and was delighted to note you’re a fellow Eugenian.

Thanks Sara. The Splendid Table Honolulu Special podcast gave me a heads up regarding Matsumoto’s… I also had thoughts of Shave Ice Nazi float up :) What was the order again? State number of orders – number of sizes – varieties – and then flavors, whew!

We picked up some happy poke in China Town today- tako and maguro varieties. Plan on going back to try the crab poke and mussel poke.

I was glad to go, but I am now glad to be back. I certainly didn’t get island fever but I knew that life on the mainland hadn’t stopped and we were falling behind on things.
