It seems like it has been months since hubs and I arrived in Hawaii, but it has only been two weeks. Sigh. Time to go home, but the memories will be with us for as long as we live.

I wrote about Hawaiian food trucks in the first days of arriving, about how they line the Honolulu coastal beach stops and how you should try them...and now down to one restaurants we visited. Above is the mussel appetizer we shared. It was wonderful. The whole experience was wonderful!

Cooking on my part did take place at my friends house in Hilo, on the big island of Hawaii, but pictures were not taken. If you get a chance to visit and stay someplace with a kitchen, then visit the farmers markets that are all over each island. Hawaiians believe in using what the islands provide, and many are trying to reason with the billions of dollars spent on shipping goods in from the mainland. So support restaurants that use what is around them. They do serve beef raised on the island.

This place firmly believes is supporting farmers and ranchers on the island, so visit Town Restaurant if you make it to Honolulu, HI. It is very laid back, and no fancy clothes needed. Here is the catch of the day- Mahi Mahi...

 and some grilled baby carrots with smoked paprika, our favorite!
