Coconuts and Cardamom – Foods Infused with Passion and Love from All Around the Globe

Hawaiian Grinds / Local Eats

Grinds” is a word used for food in the Hawaiian Islands. Where we lived, on Oahu, we enjoy a great variety of dining experiences… but they’re not always easy to find!  They come in forms of little Superettes behind a gas station, a food truck parked on the side of the road in the trees, a new one room restaurant just opening on the far North Shore. We see it as our privilege to share with you all the greatest hot spots to eat here on Oahu! Along with our fave finds we share the recipes that are important to local cuisine and other tips on how to “Hawaiian-ize” your dish.
