hawaii revisits

DSC01861 Since my cousin P and her family were visiting, we picked up plate lunches from Queen Street Cafe & Grill for lunch the other day.

This time around, I tried their guava smoked pork & onions. Think pipikaula (smoked meat) sauteed with a slightly sweet-salty sauce (kinda like char siu sauce minus the food coloring) and onions.

This was good, the meat was tender with lots of flavor though their brown rice was a bit too soft for my liking.

By the time this posts, cousin P's vacation will be over, but I hope my cousin and her family enjoyed lunch as much as we enjoyed spending time with them!

See you next year P & family!

This gives me the idea to start brushing up on smoking stuff with the Weber. Hopefully if this weather turns around and warms up! We've been waking up to 16°C temps and they only go up to about 22°. Makes me sad :(

K and S said...

wondering if you can smoke stuff indoors, Rowena?! I thought I saw something online where you do it stovetop.

Take care.

Looks great! Too bad about the soft rice, I hate when that happens with brown rice especially!

I know my grandma likes this kind of rice soft, K, but this was way too soft!

Take care.
