Taste of Hawai'i-2016
Each picture is worth a thousand words!



The Bistro in Kilauea on
Kauai's North shore featured
Blackened ono fish with spicy mayo 
and sweet soy served on a
bed of Nori seaweed.
This dish in my 
opinion was the best in show.
You can see a close up below!

Grill master Jared Diaz and  his brother Art of Recessions
Original Santa Maria style BBQ. 
Grilling and featuring for the Taste, "Tri-Tip, Chili Fresh Salsa and French bread. 
Kauai's signature event and ultimate Sunday brunch--
never disappoints!

Chef Ken Morikawa of Plantation Gardens
created an alternative dish
of Blue crab ravioli after running out of their
featured dish of Crab rangoon with spicy djon sauce.
I must say, glad I came late, Yowzers! 


                                                                                    
                   
 The Seaside Restaurant from Hilo
featured Chef Colin Nakagawa's creation;
Grilled Shrimp with umi wasabi aioli
and wasabi served on mesclun greens.
This dish had long lines, 
I think that means it was GREAT!



Chef  Lucas Sautter of the
Kauai Marriott Courtyard
has my personal reward for creative genius
with is Lobster ceviche in a
miniature sized ice cream cone!
Bon App├ętit!

KCC Jazz Band is a must see 
if you ever have the chance.
They have  performances periodically 
throughout the year at the 
Kaua'i community college and are always
free. One of the best kept secrets on the Garden Isle!

shout, 'Broke Da Mout!"
