Hi Greg and Maile, so enjoyed this food tour. It is what I expected, going to several local restaurants ranging from bakeries, noodle factory ,local markets. I enjoyed the china town tour with their stalls of fruits, vegetables, fish , and meats, reminds me of home. My husband was able to eat his favorite local vegetable dish from one of the filipino restarants.
To review our food samples, which are filling by the way,( I have to squeeze in the malasada)
1. manapua w/ char siu, a baked version of our "siopao" soo good .
2. coco puffs w/ chantilly frosting , equivalent to our " yema" frosting ,same recipe, not too sweet--soo yummy.
3.the noodles dishes w/ korean bbq blended so well together . the longan and rambutan fruits are not new to me but is a welcome treat.
4.ma tai su ( chix pot pie) ,half moon dumplings and coconut mochi, spam musubi,and of course my favorite HAWAAIAN POKE, I could not get enough of these, sooo good.
5. the desserts, pineapple, pineapple dusted w. plum powder, banana lumpia , we call "turon"
6, last but not the least, malasada, mine was w/ pineapple filling, which was too sweet for my taste, next time I'll get the plain . remember I have to squeeze this in as at this time I was soo full, had to take a nap.
7.I bought 1 dozen of pao doce ( sweet hawaaian bread at Leonards ( where we had the malasada) it is soo good, warmed it in the oven , not microwave,
Any one having second thoughts about this tour, If you enjoy multi ethnic foods ,go for it well worth the money and experience.
thanks again, Greg and Maile and Krystal
