Aloha and welcome to The Tasty Island!

Comments are welcome and certainly appreciated, provided they are in good taste.

All reviews here are express personal opinions and not paid endorsements. All editorials and photographs are original work of this site, unless otherwise noted.

You are free to use any text copy, photos and/or intellectual content from this site, with or without permission, provided the intent you incorporate and/or display it are within the context and respect of this site, which is all about the GOOD NATURE of FOOD and EATING FOOD.

THE TASTY ISLAND MUSUBI RATING SYSTEM

The Tasty Island uses an informal rating system based on Hawaii’s very own Spam Musubi icon, and new since June 2012, an Ume Musubi icon. Informal, meaning that the “Musubi Grade” isn’t mathematically averaged from total point scores on a set of various criteria, but simply by my overall impression of the restaurant, item or recipe at hand.

This is simply a fun and easy way to identify with visitors that The Tasty Island truly has Hawaii in its heart.

The Tasty Island Spam Musubi Rating System
This is the “Hungry Choice” system, used to rate food products or dishes that have absolutely no dietary restrictions. “Anykine broke da’ mout’ onolicious grindz” as we say in Pidgin English here. 


  • (5) Superb. Worthy of repeat visits or purchases. (Broke Da’ Mout’!)

  • (4) Excellent. Worth another visit or purchase. (Winnahz!)

  • (3) Very Good. Considerable of another visit or purchase. (Supah’ Ono!)

  • (2) Good. I’m glad I tried it. (Ono)

  • (1) Average. (She Go)

The Tasty Island Ume Musubi Rating System
This is the “Healthy Choice” system, used to rate food products or dishes that are light and healthy, ideal for weight loss and management.


  • (5) Superb. Worthy of repeat visits or purchases. (Broke Da’ Mout’!)

  • (4) Excellent. Worth another visit or purchase. (Winnahz!)

  • (3) Very Good. Considerable of another visit or purchase. (Supah’ Ono!)

  • (2) Good. I’m glad I tried it. (Ono)

  • (1) Average. (She Go)

Notice there isn’t any grade below average as I don’t want to go into “bashing” territory here.  If an item is included and is below average, I may make a note of it and that’s it. If it’s so bad that it reduces my entire impression of the product or restaurant, then that said place or product will simply not be qualified to be posted on this blogsite.

After all, this isn’t the “yucky” island, it’s The TASTY Island!

    Pomai,

    This is an awesome site.

    I’m glad to know/find someone who can celebrate the spam musubi.

    I LOVE local; food since I was brought-up on it.

    If you share recipes, I would like to give you some of mine. I’m not formally trained (I don’t even have the proper equipment for a truly functional kitchen), I just like good food, and cooking, for me, is a means to an end.

    I tried to share on H/T website, but people seem (and maybe it’s just me seeing things from a narrow perspective) to take things personally instead of extending themselves to attempt to understand information and share with others.

    I very much enjoyed & appreciated your contributions.

    Your stretching info in the diet thread should be a sticky post. I stretch because of a past spinal chord injury, and it reduces spasticity.

    ….and your input made you the lord of the airshow thread (great shots, Man! Well done) as far as I’m concerned. Maybe you’re just more active in the threads than other members are at the moment, but for all I can see in REAL contributions, I think that you are the heavy one who carrirs the threads.

    Your pal,

    W/M

    Aloha Pomai,

    I just found your site while searching the web for images of the Limited Edition Hawaii SPAM can. I am from Hawaii, born and raised on Oahu and am currently living in London. I am throwing a SPAM party next Friday for a couple of friends and the star attraction of the party will be a platter of SPAM musubi.

    I love your site! It made me hungry! Thanks!

    The Blazin’ Steaks in Windward Mall Kaneohe is good but the customer service sucks. There was this young, local girl with piercings on her face who was so very, very rude. Even if they served filet mignon for $6 I wouldn’t go back.

    Oh man, you make the mouth water looking at all that ono food. Mahalo for sharing the island taste. I will have to make a point of going to see the Bento Man. My sister’s were raised in that region. When I do get home from Germany every three years we always run by Hawaii Kai and this next time I will be sure to stop in and check out the ono grinds. Next time will be in the summer of 2010 for myself and my wife. Can’t get what you have there but my wife of German decent can whip up some great local dishes here in Germany too. Again, mahalo for the site and information. OK, let me clean off the saliva from the computer screen. \m/

    Hi:

    I get to visit the Islands every few months, and some time back across from the McCully Shopping Center there was an Indonesian restaurant. I think it was the called “Bali Indonesia Restaurant”. The last time I was there the building was razed and there was a new building going up.
    My question is: Do you have any idea where the restaurant moved? Are there other Indonesian restaurants on the Island?
    I am enjoying reading your blog, and hope that you might be able to point me in the right direction. Thanks!
    All the best,
    Mark Schweer

    What I know about Hawaii I learned from a trip there when I was 7 years old (1978) and from old Five-O reruns (Seasons 1-3 were the best).

    What I know about (Asian) cooking I learned from various family, my mom buying me a wok & Chinese cookbooks when I was a teenager, working at a Chinese fast-food joint in Tulsa, Oklahoma (with a muti-ethnic crew, heavy on the Vietnamese), a (native) Japanese girlfriend I should have married, and the internet.

    Now, between your blog (for inspiration and recipes), Tony Bourdain proclaiming that he would want Spam Masubi when stoned at 2:00 in the morning, and…

    http://alohaworld.com/ono/index.php

    I have really embraced Hawaiian cuisine! (When you think about the multi-ethnic influences, the food of Hawaii is one of America’s Creole cuisines.) For feeding my family and I, it has been a godsend.

    Affordable, easy, filling, healthy (somewhat). Here in Austin, Texas, we have a good sized Asian community (Viet, Chinese & Korean mostly), so ingredients are no problem.

    Thank you SO MUCH for your blog! Don’t quit! Mahalo, brudah!

    Hey Pomai,

    just found your blog yesterday (feb. 20, 2009) when I did a search on Queen Street Cafe and came with your dec. 14, 2008 chowdowns reivew. a co-worker was just there and I wanted to know what the ruckus mentioned about that place and thus the search for that store.

    but i noticed today you have the same place listed with another write-up on Queen Street Cafe again on jan. 13, 2009 – can’t keep up with you. great job on write-ups of this place.

    actually great job on this site – i like your detail description of each item, and thoroughness in covering all items. comments on other things that go with the meal and may not have any bearing on the food itself adds to the correct ambiance.

    and posting of prices is most important as we all have our economic limits on food dishes no matter our economic level. even the super wealthy can be seen at popular hole-in-the-wall shops.

    i have saved your site in my favorites and will have to catch up on your past posts to see where i am missing some good restaurants to visit.

    keep up the good work, and keep blogging…..

    Mark, we had lunch at Bali Indonesian Restaurant once a long time ago. I can’t remember much about the food though, except that it was a buffet and it was really cheap. Like just $6, or something like that. That property is now a storage facility. Ugh.

    Looking at the directory on Yelp, there’s currently no Honolulu listings for Indonesian restaurants. If I find any more information, I’ll get back to you.

You have a rating scale that revolves around it! I got off of a 26 hour duty and ended up cruzin your site for about 2 hours. The next time you go to the BI you gotta write a review on Tex malasada’s and post some pics! Aloha man and thanks for eating!

    I changed my domain name and site host about that time, and am still going through my archives fixing broken photo links. Don’t worry, I still have all the photos. A reader hooked me up with a WordPress plug-in that should be a quick fix. I’ll get to that ASAP.

    You’re the best Pomai. I look forward to reading your blog everyday. It’s not only informative but also very entertaining. Just great! I have another quick question and I know you can answer it readily with no problem.
    I’ve always wondered how Manapua outlets like Libbys, Chun Wah Kam, Royal Kitchen, and Char Hung Sut have always manged to get their Manapua perfectly “round” and smooth. For the lack of a better term or technique are they shaping their manapua by hand or is it the machinery they’re using? Curious my brother. Just being curious. Mahalo plenty Pomai.

    Paki, I honestly can’t answer that question, as every time I’ve gone to the manapua shops, all the manapuas were already made and sitting in warmers ready for sale. You’d think with the volume they produce and uniformity of each manapua, that it is a machine doing it.

    Now you have me inspired to do another “Unwrapped” style video of them making manapua, like I did of the Mandoo machine at Grant’s Grill Mandoo Express. I’ll hit-up Char Hung Sut or Chun Wah Kam and see if they’ll let me do a video shoot.

    Jacqui, it sounds like you’re in East Oahu, where there’s a number of options. In Koko Marina there’s Loco Moco Drive Inn and Zippy’s, both of whom offer catering pans and platters.

    Then in Hawaii Shopping Center, there’s L&L Drive Inn, who also offers catering pans in various serving sizes. I’ve tried both Zippy’s and L&L’s catered chicken katsu, and was never disappointed. They were both surprisingly decently moist inside and nice and golden crispy on the outside. I’d give the lean to Zippy’s, as they have a better Katsu sauce, and also a better presentation, as they use a round plastic platter that looks more presentable (versus an aluminum pan).

    STILL, whichever one you choose, I highly recommend you go to the supermarket and buy the BULL DOG Tonkatsu Sauce and serve your guests that. It will make any Chicken Katsu (providing it’s not overcooked and dried-out and/or soggy) GREAT!

    looking for a restaurant we were taken to last week near ala moana center by auntie and uncle. kind of a hole-in-wall place. called itself a japanese steakhouse. Very popular (busy), and very good.
    located across street from a huge furniture store. Can you help?

    train, I’m guessing this “huge furniture store” you hinted is Inspiration Furniture at the Honolulu Design Center at the ground floor of the Moana Pacific condos (those two twin oval-shaped highrises).

    While not exactly touted as a Japanese steakhouse, across from there is Gyu-Kaku, a Japanese BBQ restaurant where you grill your own meal on special coals at your table (Yakiniku style) imported from Japan, which those coals are said to burn cleaner and hotter.

    http://www.yelp.com/biz/gyu-kaku-japanese-bbq-dining-honolulu

    If that’s not the place you’re asking about, the map in that Yelp link will at least help point you in the right direction within the vicinity.

    I went looking for your mango bruschetta recipe but noticed in the latest incarnation of your website, the search function is missing in action.

    Throughout the years, the search function has been invaluable. For example, your smoked pork recipe is a hit at parties and when they ask (and they always ask), I don’t claim it, rather I turn them on to your site. I also learned how to make pastrami from you.

    Can you please turn the search function back on or let me know where to send the check?

      In the mean time, it’s better to just enter this syntax in at Google.com:

      It returns my blog’s page based on that query at the very top.

I was actually interested in smoking meats and your Big Island Smoke Meat demo was the start of my “smoke meat” endeavors…however, noted that you’re not too much involved recently in your food demos? Wondering if any upcoming plans?

      I’ve noticed many comments where readers particularly enjoy the cooking demos here, mainly because of the employment of lots of photos, which does help, instead of just a text recipe.

      My next cooking demo will probably be Misoyaki Salmon stuffed Aburage simmered in oden broth. That’s way down the road though, as I’m STILL working on my coverage of the 4th annual Up in Smoke Cook-off.

      Yamasa is my favorite brand, which I find tastes right smack in between the salty, super robust Kikkoman and comparably milder Aloha Shoyu.

      That Coconut Aminos soy substitute sauce you mentioned looks interesting. I’ll pick a bottle up if I see it in the grocery store. Thanks for the tip!

      Glad you like the site. :-)

        A side note on that, Costco Hawaii just brought in Organic Coconut Oil (for cooking use, not suntan oil lol). It looks SUPER thick. Quite pricey however, going for $17.99 per 40 oz. bottle, IIRC.

If so, I’d be great if I could get a digital copy to share with the readers here on YouTube (or hosted on your network website). I’d also love to see the G.S. segment you recently did featuring my review of Ah Lang on this blog. That’d be sweet.

      I just have a few terms of agreement when we meet over lunch or dinner at Ah Lang: YOU do everything Won expects us to do. That means YOU (Cody c/o CBS) bring Won her favorite Michelob Ultra and/or Shoju. YOU (Cody) get us the iced water (and keep it filled). YOU (Cody) get the food from the kitchen. YOU (Cody) take the dirty dishes back to the kitchen. YOU (Cody) do the dishes. And finally YOU (Cody c/o CBS) pay the bill.

      I’ll just stay comfortably seated and enjoy watching you work while Won and I enjoy some GREAT Korean grub, Shoju and/or Michelob Ultra together. LOL!!! :party:

      I’ll send ya’ an eMail later.

    Kauai Based Monkeypod Jam Brings Taste of the Garden Isle to Oahu

    By Aletha Thomas
    March 19, 2013

    Koloa, HI – Monkeypod Jam is excited to bring the tastes of Kauai to Oahu Friday, May 3 and Saturday, May 4, 2013. To help celebrate Foodland’s 65 years of business, R. Fields, Aina Haina will host Monkeypod Jam creator, Aletha Thomas for an afternoon jam tasting between four and six. The public is invited to come sample Kauai’s local produce resulting in wonderful flavor blends such as Mountain Apple Pepper Jelly, Papaya Vanilla Jam, Tahitian Lime Curd, Spiced Tomato Jam, Caracara Ginger Marmalade and Banana Foster Jam.
    On Saturday, May 4, Aletha will showcase Monkeypod’s fruit preserves at the Ala Moana William-Sonoma Artisan Market, which takes places the first Saturday of each month. Shoppers are encouraged to attend this monthly event to try products created by artisanal food crafters across the state of Hawaii. Monkeypod will share six different preserves, and each will be available for purchase at farmers market prices.
    Both events will share company and product information along with listings of where to find Monkeypod Jam throughout Oahu. Select preserves are currently available for purchase through R. Fields Wine Company at Foodland Aina Haina, Ala Moana, Market City, Kapolei, Kailua and Beretania.
    About Monkeypod Jam
    Monkeypod Jam came about in June of 2010 when middle school teacher, Aletha Thomas was placed on furlough. Each furlough Friday, Aletha created unique Kauai fruit jams, jellies, marmalades and curds, utilizing traditional French preservation techniques. Today, Monkeypod Jam works with over 25 Kauai farmers to create 55 seasonal preserves. Monkeypod is deeply committed to Kauai agriculture, green practices and impeccably high preserving standards. The company’s unabashed flavor combinations have captured the interest of Hawaii’s prominent chefs and shop owners. In September of 2012, Monkeypod Jam started stocking the shelves of select off-island retail outlets. Later this year, the company hopes to increase its availability to over fifty shops throughout Hawaii.

    Macaroni is a variety of dry pasta made with durum wheat. Elbow macaroni noodles normally do not contain eggs, (although they may be an optional ingredient) and are normally cut in short, hollow shapes; however, the term refers not to the shape of the pasta, but to the kind of dough from which the noodle is made. Although home machines exist that can make macaroni shapes, macaroni is usually made commercially by large-scale extrusion.,’-:

    Thanks for your comments on my blog, sounds like you’ve done an amazing job getting trim and fit. Plus you did it on your own rather than having bad health force you to do it, as is my case. I agree Costco really should have better food court choices, just having olive oil and vinegar available, along with some simpler salads, would help tremendously.

    Hi there,

    I was recently looking online for some information about Food and Drink all over the world, and I came across your articles at Foodprints from your Parents. I found them super helpful, very informative but above all, super engaging! 

    Just recently, my team at Buffalo Tours (a company born right in the heart of Vietnam) created an infographic about Vietnamese coffee, drawing on some of our in-depth knowledge about coffee production here in Indochina. I thought I’d share it with you, since I’m sure your readers will find it enlightening and engaging, too! You can check it out here: [INFOGRAPHIC] A Step-by-Step Guide to Understanding Coffee in Indochina

    If you enjoy it, we’d love if you embedded it on your blog (and, in the meantime, shared it via your social networks).

    And although this infographic has plenty of information about coffee in Indochina, there’s even MORE to know about it, and we’d love to share some more of our insider knowledge on it. If you’d like, we’d love to write a guest post just for you!

    Looking forward to hearing from you,

    Hey have you ever reviewed Willow Tree in Kailua? To me it is one of the best little restaurants on the island.

    Pomai,

    DYI.. Your picture of the SBD Douglas Dauntless SBD Dive bomber is actually a picture of the Grumann F4 Wildcat.

    Aloha Pomai,

    I first meet you when I use to own Impressed Juice and you did a feature on us a year back on our kulolo.  I wanted to inform you and invite you to try a new food creation.  The first ever milk tea waffle.  My good friend Yen is the owner of Taste Tea on Kapiolani.  He just released this new creation.  If you would like to come down and do a tasting I can set it up for you.  There would be no charge we just want to hear a fellow food loverʻs opinion.

    Aloha,
    Taelson

    Pomai – I’ve tried smoking country style pork ribs 3 times now, using mesquite, then hickory wood to smoke.  I followed the Big Island smoke meat recipe.  Each time I did it, it always tasted like Pipikaula instead of that real good smoke flavor.  What am I doing wrong?   Kokua please!

    Thanks for your kind words about our Great Chefs series and the

    rating system by Thrillist.  We’ve never gone for awards, and try to keep

    our ego at home.  But Great Chefs of Hawaii, can now be seen on our

    new website http://www.greatchefs.com     We are finalizing & updating all the chefs bio’s

    for the site and should be completed later this month.  It’s been a

    challenge.  The Hawaii series (30 episodes) ran on the Discovery Channel for 22 years

    daily.  It’s available for your PBS station if they are interested.

    Best regards,

    John Shoup

    Executive Producer

    I would like to know how to order or find a place in California to buy Hormel Goteborg.

    We live in Fresno California.  We are Russian-German and used to be able to buy this product.
