Try it at during a***luau***(traditional Hawaiian feast) or as part of a**loco moco***, which comprises your choice of protein, two scoops of rice, and one scoop of macaroni salad. For something lighter, opt forpoke***, made from fresh fish chopped and marinated with soy sauce and served with add-ons such as seaweed, onions, and avocados. For the ultimate local comfort food, try some Japanese-inspiredspam musubi(fried spam is wrapped in rice and Japanese seaweed), or a bowl of***saimin***, a noodle dish with south Asian roots and a unique Hawaiian twist.
