On this tour we will take you to eat some of the best authentic local food that locals love. This includes traditional Hawaiian food and fusion local food that were inspired & created by Hawaii's rich and colorful history. Along the way, our guide will explain some of the landmarks that we'll pass and will share some history and insight.
You will first head to try different types of fresh Poke (pronounced Poke-kay) from one of Hawaii's oldest seafood market (80 years in business!). Here you'll be able to see all the different selections of the local staple that has recently exploded in popularity. In addition to Ahi (blue fin tuna), you'll also have the opportunity to try other types of pokes made with fresh local ingredients such as Tako (octopus), O'io (raw bonefish paste mixed with limu (seaweed), local fern, and even Ake (raw cow liver poke, prounounced as "Ah-kay").
Next, your guide will take you to eat Garlic Shrimp with an Asian twist. After your tastebuds have been overloaded with the flavors of garlic and butter, you will head to wash your palette down with Hawaiian Shave Ice. Here you will be able to try the 10+ different flavors and option combos and also enjoy a little bit of local snacks such as "li hing mui / crack seed".
Finally, you'll head to the best bakery on the island where you'll try some local pastry treats.
You will be dropped off at your hotel lobby after your foodventure concludes.
