Hawaii is known for their different food that you cannot get on the Mainland! Below is a list of the five foods you must try in Hawaii.
Malasadas are similar to a donut but so much better. They are friend dough that come out hot and are rolled in sugar. They can also be filled with custard.
2. Shave Ice
Shave Ice is NOT the same as a snow cone on the Mainland. Shave Ice is finely shaved ice covered in flavored syrups. Some of the best flavors are lilikoi, lychee, coconut, pineapple, mango or any tropical flavor they have!
3. Plate Lunch
Plate lunches are super popular in Hawaii. Most of them include kalua pig, rice, macaroni salad and some salad.
Poke is raw Ahi Tuna. It is often seasoned with flavors. It's great for a snack or appetizer (pupu) before your meal.
5. Spam Musubi
Spam Musubi somewhat looks like sushi. It is rice, with fried spam on top, wrapped in seaweed. Some of the best ones are found at the 7/11 as many locals will make it and drop it off in the mornings at 7/11 and it will be $1.00.
