Hawaiian cuisine, with its fresh seafood and western and eastern influences and creative chefs, serves up "onolicious" cuisine that will "broke the mouth." There's Japanese, Chinese, Puerto Rican and other influences. Poke is Hawaii's unique take on ceviche, a chunky, raw-fish salad. Instead of bacon with your eggs, try the Portuguese sausage. Melt-in-your-mouth luau stew is usually made with beef brisket cooked in taro leaves and spices. Kalua pork is Hawaii's version of the meat cooked in an underground imu oven. Pasteles is like a Mexican tamale, but this Puerto Rican pastele is made using grated green bananas mixed with plantains and yuca, with various fillings. Manapua is Hawaii's version of char sui bao buns. Loco moco is white rice topped with hamburger patties and fried eggs, covered in brown gravy. (but there are various combinations) Don't leave the islands without having some Hawaiian shaved ice and deep-fried malasadas, the Portuguese version of a donut, that's dusted in sugar, and filled with custard.
