All the Food

While I may not be a plating genius, the welcome dinner poolside (and on a wooden surfboard) did not disappoint. All the sashimi, poke and sushi you could eat. Yum!
We headed to Imari for a work team dinner at the Hilton Waikoloa Resort where we stayed. I had a watermelon mojito and Brian and I shared the Agedashi Tofu, Sashimi Sampler, the Lava Tube (spicy ahi roll topoped with seared ahi and spicy ponzu sauce), and the Tiger Shrimp Roll (shrimp tempura, cucumber, spicy aioli and tobiko rice).
As soon as we left the resort, for our vacation time, we headed straight to a local spot, Broke da Mouth Grindz. I had this yummy calamari steak with kimchee fried rice and Brian had their signature Garlic Furikake chicken.
After settling into the treehouse, we headed to the Ohelo Café, about a mile away. It was a rainy night, so a four cheese pizza sounded perfect, to go along with my yummy blood orange martini.
Our Airbnb host left us all the fixings, and instructions for, this delicious papaya, key lime yogurt with toasted coconut and macadamia nut granola treat.
As mentioned in my last post, one of the owners of the Inn we stayed at is a chef and you have the option of adding dinner to your stay (a no brainer!). Everything Kenny makes is locally sourced and expertly cooked, like this amazing salad with lemon pepper fish.
The breakfasts at the Inn were also scrumptious - and I LOVE breakfast! From the homemade English muffin to the local fruits and veggies, it was pretty perfect.
At the end of our trip we raced the clock (and our returning flights) to have one last island meal. We headed to the beachfront, Huggo's on the Rocks for fish tacos that were as awesome as being able to watch the waves and have our feet in the sand.

There you have it, all the food highlights from The Big Island of Hawaii. Thanks for stopping by!
