Eating halfway through Hawaii

We’ve only a short time in Hawaii, so the list of things we HAVE to eat is short as well.

We still have a lot of places and things to eat, including Bubbie’s Ice Cream, Leonard’s Malasadas, a new musubi joint called “Mana Bu’s”, and dinner with other FoodBuzz Featured Publishers at Tokkuri-Tei.

Oh, and more beach time to try to work off all this great food.

Aloha, Nate
