What to Eat
When on vacation, travelers are constantly in search of a place to eat. Whether it’s in the form of a well-known fast-food joint or the most elegant restaurant, we all have to eat something. Many choose fast food or a chain restaurant due to cost and convenience, but why sacrifice a culinary experience when you don’t have to? Kauai has many popular American fast-food restaurants scattered around the island, and even if McDonald’s serves Spam for breakfast, Tasting Kauai will show you a better place to try this popular canned meat in Hawaii. Additionally, when speaking about Hawaiian cuisine, people often think about the loco moco, Spam Musubi, Saimin, poke and of course, poi. There are many versions of these quintessential Hawaiian dishes, however Tasting Kauai will provide a trip that samples exemplary versions, not run-of-the-mill tourist traps.
