It’s said that Hawaii’s Polynesian cuisine is some of the healthiest in the world. In our estimation, it’s also some of the tastiest, too — exotic flavors and spices melding with local fish, taro, coconut, and tropical fruits, enjoyed toes-in-the-sand as palms sway in the breeze overhead. Mai tai optional.
“Fantasy,” you say? How about “delicious reality.”
