Our Thoughts

Best of the Booth

The Kālua Pork is always a favorite at this festival and at $5.50 it’s still reasonably priced. The pork is sweet and salty and has beautiful tropical flavors and no spice, so it’s going to work for folks who don’t love the heat. The flavors + price are the reasons it’s one of the items on our “Best $50“.

Rest of the Booth

The Lomi Lomi Salmon is fresh and yummy. We have seen it with a nicer presentation in other years, but the flavors are still there. The Haupia is milky, light, and creamy: the perfect sweet after the pork.
