There are some AMAZING things about Hawai’i Nei and one of those Amazing things are it’s FOOD! So what makes food in Hawaii so Amazing?….FUSION, that’s what…The great thing about Hawaii is the Fusion of Food from all over the World brought together in one condensed place. Here in Hawaii our Fusion Food consists of a Mix of HAWAIIAN, EUROPEAN, AMERICAN, PORTUGUESE and ASIAN consisting of foods from: China, Korea, Japan, Thailand and the Philippines.
People don’t always remember where some of the food we love to eat today in Hawaii came from…The Chinese brought the MANAPUA, STIR FRY, SWEET & SOUR, DIM SUM, the Portuguese brought SWEET BREAD and MALASADAS, the Japanese brought the BENTO, MOCHI, SHAVE ICE and SUSHI, the Koreans brought KIMCHI and KOREAN BBQ…The list goes on and on.
With these PLANTATION FUSION FOODS came the local PLATE LUNCH, the SPAM MUSUBI and items like the LOCO MOCO.
So with all this AMAZING FOOD and an a MILLION other plates we’re going to discuss the best LOCAL RESTAURANTS to Taste and enjoy the HAWAIIAN FUSION CUISINE here in Paradise…one of the many reasons why we are so Lucky to Live HAWAII!
