Eskimo Candy

The Annoyer is pretty easy going about things. He doesn’t have a strong opinion about many things, but when it comes to Eskimo Candy, he won’t consider any other place for poke. You can try to reason that the poke at Eskimo Candy is too sweet, too saucy, too anything but he’ll argue and disprove…

Wow Wow Lemonade

I had my first and best ever acai bowl when I was on the Big Island. Ever since then, most acai bowls have fallen pretty short.  The acai is either too icy, too watery, or too sour.  The toppings are a little plain or uninspired.  Wow Wow didn’t quite live up to my first acai…

Coconut’s Fish Cafe

So after a long flight we finally arrived in Maui. The weather was a very welcome change. Not that SoCal is like Siberia or anything but I’d take 70-80 degree weather over 50-60 degrees weather any day. And it turned out that we traded a week of rain for a week of sunshine as well!…

Pine Tree Cafe

After a grey morning in the mountains touring the Mountain Thunder Coffee Plantation, sampling fresh Kona coffee, we Yelped our way to this nearby Hawaiian cafe.  It’s a really casual joint.  Order, take a number, and pick up your food on a tray.  The menu is quite extensive and it was hard to widdle down…

Lemongrass Express

So I’m finally getting around to my Big Island vacation eats from the summer.  I didn’t really plan on any specific places to hit up.  In fact, I did very little planning for the whole trip.  Thanks to Fat-Skinny-Fat-Less Fat and Dairy Queen, I just hopped along for the ride and kinda played the fooding…
