Hawaiian Food and Local Cuisine
Waves of immigration have no doubt contributed to the island's distinctive and varied culinary delights. Try the local cacao (chocolate) and Hawaiian macadamia nuts grown in rich volcanic soil. Popular street snacks include Malasadas, a Portuguese sugar-fried dough snack, and loco moco, a dish served with rice, brown gravy, fried egg, and a burger patty.
Another must-try is the world-famous gourmet Kona coffee. Kālua pig cooked inside an underground oven is best served at Hawaiian luaus (cultural shows). Another favorite is poke (raw fish), marinated with soy sauce, lemons, and onions. Taro root-based Hawaiian pudding, po'i, is a Big Island favorite.
