My Hilo Grandma exposed me to Hawaiian food though she once told me not to eat Hawaiian food infront of other people or else they will think I am a heathen. Also during college I used to be a vegetarian. Either way I respect people's choice what they put in their mouth and do not presume to judge what others eat... or do not eat.

Well here are some pictures that I forgot to post from my trip to Seattle. If some people remember I inherited some property from family and I lived there for about 13 years so it always has a special place in my heart.

Anyway here are some pictures of Hawaiian food for those who don't know about Hawaiian food as some people who read my Livejournal already know what Hawaiian food is. This is for those who don't know... or for those who wanna know what I like to eat LOL

Starting off with poi:

Note that I take crappy pictures but I go for content... not quality LOL

This is aku le mixed with some water and onions:

This is poke on the left and crab on the right:

Note that yes, it is raw crab but I'm Hawaiian. It's been part of our culture for centuries.

Last but not least... lomi salmon:

The last one is not really my favorite but if offered to me... I will eat it. It's usually too salty for me.

It's so good to see these wonderful Hawaiian foods. I've never had raw crab or aku le, but both look fantastic. What's great is that a more traditional diet with sea food, poi, fish, fruits, veggies and sweet potato is real healthy.

Great pics! What a nice walk down memory lane! As a child, I loved raw crab and lomi salmon. I appreciate your statement about respecting what others eat and don't eat. It's appalling how many people can't bring themselves to do that.

Ummm, I am debating whether I should break into your stash of Hawaiian food in our freezer. lol

Just kidding! hee hee
