We had so many food photos from our recent camping trip at Bellows, that I thought they deserved their own post. From bibingka (filipino mochi) to “wooden candy” (an Indian snack) to marinated chicken from Kalihi Super Meats. We had a wide variety of ethnic foods that sort of blended well together, or maybe not. We had left over chow mein (from dinner the night before) that made for a good early morning dish once heated up on the mini grill. We also indulged on Mega Stuf Oreos. I highly recommend those Mega Stuf Oreos. And we also had a breakfast invention conceptualized by Ahnate, our resident breakfast guru. He whipped up delicious jalapeno SPAM breakfast burritos. They really hit the spot after a morning of sunrise watching. SPAM fanatics, I’ve posted the recipe below.
I’ve been wanting to camp at Bellows Field Beach Park for some time now, but never actually took the initiative to secure a campground permit. Until recently, that is. Camping permits at Bellows go quickly, and are usually gone within a day or two of becoming available. Camping is available for permitting two Fridays prior to the Friday that you want to camp (at 5pm HST). Your best shot at securing one of these permits is to sit at your computer on a late Friday afternoon, and continually refresh the City & County of Honolulu Camping Permits website until you can select the weekend that you desire. The permit will set you back $32 (a $2 administrative fee is included in this price).
