Re: July 10, 2019: Zippy's Plate Lunch, Oahu

PortMoresby ·
I googled "plate lunch" to learn more & Wikipedia has an entry that explains it all. I even learned there's a chain of Hawaiian restaurants with locations not that far from me. One of these days . . .

PHeymont ·
On our one trip to Hawaii, we ate in a few top-shelf listed-in-food-mags places, but in the end, my only real culinary memories of Hawaii are all the plate lunches and one incredible loco moco in Hilo... Thanks for bringing back pleasant memories!

Better yet, bring them along and share. They must be better than they sound. The chorizo sounds the best of all.

Re: Pineapple field, Dole Plantation

Surprises me that Pineapples are grown in the US and sold in the US for 3 times the price I pay in the UK . Same with Cane Sugar. Bag of Barbados sugar (1 Kilo / 2.2 Pounds ) is currently less than $1 US.

Pineapples grown in Hawaii are consumed in Hawaii. There is no export to the lower 48 states. Between the locals and tourists that's still a lot of pineapples. Shipping anything to or from a remote island is expensive. Mainland USA gets a lot of its pineapples from Central America.

Re: Diamond Head State Monument, Oahu (Where Gumbo Was #230)

GarryRF ·
On my last visit to Diamond Head we left near to the closing time. A large Limousine was waiting to take us back to Waikiki. I hadn't ordered one but the driver insisted we used him to take us back. "I will charge you the same as the Taxi fare you paid to get here" Sounded like an offer too good to refuse ! Before we arrived back in Waikiki another 4 couples had joined our Taxi ride. Had to admire the driver for ingenuity. Very good earner !

Another reminder of man's inhumanity towards man. Deeply moving moment - like a visit to the gravestones of northern France. Less we forget.

My first quest in any vacation is to pick and eat the local fruit. Has to be less than an hour between plucking from it's home and tasting - Can it be done there too ? Love the pix !
