Back a few years ago, on one of our trips back home to Hawaii, we went to the Honolulu Fish Auction, what a blast!
Palate after palate of the freshest fish, I mean just brought out of the Pacific Ocean fresh, kept coming out from the fishing boats. Eat more fish!!
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why not have the quintessential meal from Hawaii,
… and Diamond Head in the background!
Spam®, Eggs and Rice
but kick it over the top with a glass of Guava Juice; then Aloha Shoyu and Furikake for your Rice
It’s Aloha Friday and you couldn’t do better than this!

58 years ago today, the Aloha State was admitted to the Union, becoming the 50th State.
I truly hope that someday, if you haven’t already, you’ll make your way to my place of birth and enjoy everything about it. It’s people and their hospitality, nature’s beauty at its finest, the unique, multi-ethnic, diverse cultural blend and of course THE FOOD!
Ua mau ke ea o ka aina i ka pono
The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness
That’s right, in Hawaii, today has been designated a holiday, so no work til Tuesday brah!!
So live it up!
Have a terrific Bento Box lunch at Gyotaku Japanese Restaurant (we went to the one in Aikahi, but it’s closed now, dang it!). HEH! This is mine, go get your own!
This calls for some Hawaiian Food from Young’s Fish Market in Kalihi Hawaii.
Starting from the top/center of the tray, Opihi.
To the right of that is the Combination Plate: Laulau, Kalua Pig, Lomi Salmon, one BIG scoop Rice and Okinawan Sweet Potato.
Then you’ve got a bowl of Squid Luau, MMM!
To round it all out, the Kalua Pig Plate with Poi and Lomi Salmon.
DH and I shared this tray of ono~liciousness between us and inhaled every bit of it!
Not shown was a piece of Kulolo and Haupia for dessert.
Now, if we only had a Beer to wash this all down with, that my friends would make it perfect!
ALOHA! Enjoy your weekend!
