Part I |  Part II  | Part III

Part 2 in our Kauaian Style EATS segment leads us to Kauai Chocolate, aboard Holoholo Charters, and Hamura’s Saimin. Let’s get on it!

While waiting to board our sunset catamaran tour, we stopped at Kauai Chocolate Company near Port Allen for a lil’ snack. I’m not a big sweets person, but the immense chocolate smell that enters your nasal passages when you walk in the door hypnotizes you.

Then it was “all aboard” Holoholo Charters for the Na Pali Coast Sunset tour. Motion sickness almost got the best of me, but a couple of beers and a little mental toughness 😉 allowed me to pull through and enjoy their “heavy pupus” meal.

What’s a trip to Kauai without mentioning the ever-popular Hamura’s Saimin? Not exactly my favorite, but still a decent place to grab a (reasonably) quick bite…

Well, that’s it for part 2. Tune in tomorrow for “Where in Hawaii” Wednesday and then Thursday for the final part (part 3) of this Kauai EATS series.


On another related note, Congratulations to fellow co-worker Wayne Yamada’s adorable daughter Carly, who was honored at this past weekend’s dedication for the bronze, life-sized statue of Spark Matsunaga in Hanapepe. The statue includes the late Matsunaga with a little girl (Carly)!
