hawaii sights and shops

On Friday, I bought a tiny tin of Diva Chocolate's Mocha Java Grilling Rub (US$8+tax). Awhile back I had seen this on another blog and was interested in getting some. I looked online and found out that a local shop, It's Chili in Hawaii sells them.

I knew that they were on King Street but hadn't realized that they had moved to Waialae Avenue. It was a good thing I had called to find out where they were located and also to make sure they had some.

When I went to purchase the rub, the owner remembered my call and also mentioned that this rub smells awesome when grilling. I hope it tastes good too...will update when I try this.

Lastly, the reason I love coming home (besides seeing family and friends)...to see these...rainbows. Stretching across the sky. Smiling back at you. Hope you have a great week.

It's Chili in Hawaii
3133 Waialae Avenue (inside of Shipping Shack)
Honolulu, Hawaii
Phone: 808.945.7070
Open Tuesday-Saturday 9:00-16:00

UPDATE: 09/06/09 the website for Diva Chocolate states that they are no longer in business (due to the economy), but notes an email in case you need to contact them. (sad to see them go!)

09/23/09: just read that It's Chili in Hawaii will be moving out of the Shipping Shack (because the Shipping Shack will be moving) and will mostly be at the swap meet and trade shows, if you want to be added to their mailing list, email them at chiliinhawaii@gmail.com

I wanna see the results of that rub! Pulehu! Pulehu!

oh, and one more thing...the milk jam was AWESOME. I did the earl grey (yum) and then made it again but used some of my lavender oil cooking essence instead. A winner, but you know what? You wasn't kidding about taking forever for this stuff to cook!

K and S said...

ooh earl grey and lavender, that must have been an awesome combo, Rowena :) glad you liked the milk jam!

Take care.

Take care you two.
