The Tasty Island's First Birthday!


Everyone, please enjoy a virtual birthday Luau plate!

I just realized that The Tasty Island just made 1 year on June 8th. With that, in true Hawaiian fashion, we’re throwing a “baby” luau! A tradition that most families in Hawaii do on their child’s first birthday.

On that Luau plate above, from top left to bottom right is Squid Luau, Lomi Salmon, Poi, Big Island Smoked Pork, Kalua Pig, a small portion of a a Laulau, Chicken Long Rice, Okinawan Sweet Potato, Taro and a slice of Pineapple. All that’s missing is the Opihi, Raw Crab, Pipikaula Haupia and Kulolo.

I just want to send out a BIG, BIG MAHALO to everyone who’s visited, and especially those who have left so many kind comments. Lots of you have blogs of your own that I’m due to visit and reciprocate the gesture. It’s really hard to make time even to maintain this blog, but I’ll continue to share the aloha of great food, hopefully for many years to come.

Happy Birthday Tasty Island!

    Wow, it’s been a year already. Amazing………..Congrads!!!! I surely have been really enjoying your articles and pictures. And am looking forward for many more to come. BTW, where did you get the Haw’n plate from? I really would like to get my hand on some Big Island smoke meat. Much Mahalos for sharing your time and articles with us.

    Pomai,

    Congrats on ‘The Tasty Island’ and your first year in the blogosphere! I haven’t been too active lately, so thank you for helping to bring a part of Hawai’i to the rest of the world!

    This is such a good idea! I will try to remember to have a luau for my blog! I guess I won’t send a baby picture to KHON though. :) Hmmm… maybe I will just to see what happens! Seriously, this is so cute! I have to go check out your links to see who is open on Sundays! I need to find something different for lunch with Mom on Sundays.
