Eat The Street! It’s been a while since I’ve battled the crowds at Kakaako’s favorite food rally. However, the theme was chocolate, and well, I just had to be there. The usual suspects were there (Soul Patrol, Paul’s Poppers, and Ono Pops), along with some pleasant new surprises (Wow Wow Waffle, Pt. Suisse, Oko Guys, Pop Pop Donuts).
Exploration: Hawaii writer Marvin Chandra has been hitting the Hawaii festival scene very hard over the last couple of months. I decided to join him for the 2014 Vietnamese New Year’s Festival at Kapiolani Park. While Marvin decided to focus on the various performers at the festival, I paid a bit more attention to all of the delicious food for sale. I ended up tasting the avocado bubble drink from one of the food stands. It was so good that it was gone within a few minutes. Too bad the rain came, I would have stayed longer to taste more of the food.
