We will be on BI in a week and change--for 12 days--and I'd like to know where is a good place to get a locally-ranched beef steak? I stress locally ranched because I always like to eat locally whenever possible, and I know there are huge ranchlands on the BI--would love to try it. We're looking for quality (as opposed to a typical "steakhouse experience" with huge quantities and greasy fried stuff on the sides). Any recommendations? We are staying in Waikoloa village and south Kona, but have overnights in volcano too and will be travelling almost everywhere at some point, so geography isn't critical. Also, is local beef available in the groceries? My husband does a mean BBQ himself and we have access to grills.
Another related matter--pork. I just read that the province of Alberta has been heavily fined for shipping poor pigs in despicable conditions--to Hawaii! And this pork is then called "Island Pork". Is this what's used in luaus? Do any of you have any inside scoop on where your pork really comes from? (Do any of you really care? LOL)
