Trip to Hawaii (Oahu - July 2010)...Lunch at Ono Hawaiian Foods

Before heading to the airport to fly to Maui, we stopped by at Ono Hawaiian Foods on Kapahulu Ave. for lunch. I've been to this restaurant several times and I always like their food. They serve very rustic Hawaiian dishes, including kalua pig, lau lau, and oxtail stew.

This time, I had Butterfish luau, poi, and a bowl of rice. Butterfish luau was a stew dish. Salted butterfish (black cod) was simmered in the stew of taro leaves. It was nice. And, poi, which is basically mashed (pounded) cooked taro root. It has a nice sour taste with the slimy texture. I like poi on its own or also with cooked food.

I got the nice power from the healthy Hawaiian lunch.
