In the Hawaiian language "Ono" means "yummy", "scrumptious", "flavorful", "hits the spot" and "delicious" to describe ones feelings about tasteful food that they are enjoying. We even go so far as to call it "Ono-licious"!
As I discussed in my post HAWAIIAN Spirits and Superstitions Hawaii has many different ethnic groups and so you may as well expect an abundance of so many different varieties of cultural foods as well. So embark on this journey that will definitely get your taste buds going and your mouth watering!
Definition of a Plate lunch?
The most important of all is the plate lunch. It's a meal composed of an entree or combination of entrees, served with rice and macaroni salad on the side. We have an abundance of "take out plate lunch havens" that include Hawaiian, Chinese, Japanese, Samoan, Filipino, Tongan, Korean, American and other kinds of cuisine as well as great on your budget! An average plate lunch is about $5 to $7 and you will be taking half of it home for leftovers.
The "plate lunch" includes entrees such as Chicken Katsu, Kalbi Short Ribs, Mahi-Mahi, Pork Adobo, Kalua Pork, BBQ Chicken and I can guaranty you will be standing to the side looking at the menu for awhile trying to decide what it is you want to try. I also guaranty you will be leaving the island with a few more...okay, a lot more pounds on you than when you arrived. Guaranty!
Okay. Hawaiian Food. the typical Hawaiian food spread will include (from middle right going counter clockwise) Kalua pig, (The word kālua means "to cook in an underground oven" which is commonly served at luau Hawaiian feasts) poi (pounded pasty substance from the taro plant),Haupia (coconut jello), sliced onion, lomi lomi salmon (cut up salmon,onions and tomatoes), laulau (wrapped up in taro leaves and consists of pork, butterfish or chicken and pork or any variety of meats) pipikaula (smoked beef and thinly sliced) and douced in chili pepper water. Yummy!
