Pictures of Hawaiian food


Many people have asked me how the hell does Hawaiian food look? Well it's very difficult to buy Hawaiian food in the islands since many fish markets like Bob's Fish Market have closed which makes me upset. Anyway for those who have asked me repeatedly for the pics and/or for more pics... here they are.

First... one of my favorite foods, poi:


Picture 1: Poi




Picture 2: Ake (one of my favorite foods)







Picture 3: FOOD lol


In the back: Tako poke, limu poke
In the front: Poi


Picture 4: Opihi on the top... raw crab on the bottom




Picture 5: Opihi



Picture 6: Limu poke



Picture 7: More

Counter-clockwise from top left: Limu poke, dried aku, opihi, and tako poke



Picture 8: Tako poke

Tako poke up close




I realize that these foods seem abnormal to some but I would take it any day over a five star restaurant. In fact I have been to very expensive restaurants and did not enjoy the food. I would rather have Hawaiian food... hands down. Just give me poi and aku palu and I'm happy. (I am very easy to please.) Of course other Hawaiians already know about these foods. I am posting these pics for those who have never ever seen Hawaiian food before in their life lol

Anyway this is what I ate in my hotel room while I was in Las Vegas courtesy of my mother. She knows how much I love my Hawaiian food and brought them all the way from Hawaii to Las Vegas which I really appreciate.

Opihi! Tako! Yum!! (though I'm vegan now) "Tako" was one of the first Japanese words I learned as a child. =) Thank you for posting these pics!

That's what I was concerned about because there are many vegetarians whom I know plus my uncle is a vegetarian. I could not eat these foods infront of him and I didn't want to offend him and at one point in my life for about 10 years I was a vegetarian too. Anyway you're right about opihi :-)

It's okay, I love that you brought back those memories. =) And we're going to Hawaii in August, so I'll have to steel myself for being surrounded by all that amazing, fresh seafood, anyway! It's going to kill me--I went vegan immediately after getting back from Hawaii the last time (two summers ago), so this will be my first time there as a vegan. It will be really hard!

Fantastic pictures. I miss Hawaiian foods, particularly poi. I have never had opihi or aku palu, however I learned to love tako in Hawai'i.

I found poke easy enough to get in the super markets on O'ahu. Were you talking about one of the other islands? Do you like breadfruit?

Where might one find these foods on the continent to try? They look interesting. And is Tako Poke octopus? Mmmmmm.
I'll trade you some wojapi and NDN tacos for some poi and aku palu.
