In this photo Yoshiko Kobayashi gives the shaka sign in front of the Ono Kai Hawaiian BBQ restaurant in the Bay of Islands on the North Island of New Zealand.
First of all, they spelled ono incorrectly.
Secondly, plate lunches are not Hawaiian food. Note the tag line, "Hawaiian BBQ." Hawaiians have never served plate lunches nor have they had rice in their diet.
Thirdly, it's annoying yet it also shows how people buy into the lie that plate lunches are Hawaiian.
I have news for you: Whenever you go to L & L "Hawaiian" BBQ... and others places like it... remember they are lying to you.
In the end all you are buying is into a lie and the plate lunches make you FAT.
Just say "No."
Want Hawaiian food? Try some poi, aku palu, ake, and/or wana.
That is all... for now.
