clare eats

I still haven't managed to find any hawaiian stuff here, they probably don't import it at all :(

Kirk

Hi Clare - I dunno, I'll check for a bit. I'd love to have you try poi! And did you ever make poke?

Jo

I'm gonna try poi one of these days. I ALMOST tried Vegemite a while back, but at $5 a jar, I had to put it back... =o(

Kirk

Hi Jo - Poi's really pretty good tasting. I think it's the texture that kinda freaks people out.

milgwimper

Guava jelly! Oh that sounds so good. Hmmm Yeah the texture can freak people out on the poi. I don't remember if I liked it or not. Well I guess I will have to try some again! :D

Kirk

Hi Mills - Yes, I guess you'll have to...

Jack

Isn't it great to have all of this stuff so close to us? My cousin that just moved to Temecula was down and bought his supply of Aloha Shoyu and portugese sausage for the house at the market.

Kirk

Hey Jack - Yes, we're pretty much getting everything we need - just need good Ogo, some Chili Pepper Water, and I think we may be almost set!

Annie

WOW! poi!!! that is so awesome!! thanks for the post!! i'm so excited! i do miss the saimein too... i think you can make decent minute cake noodle with these noodles! i'll have to see!

Kirk

Hi Annie - That was my response as well!

Reid

Hey Kirk,

You're lucky that you can get all of that stuff in San Diego. When I lived in both New York and Miami, I couldn't find so many of these things. I'd have to lug them back with me.

Kirk

Hi Reid - I found the Poi to be a surprise.

angelic

OMG! I don't really know who you are, But all I know is that I LOVE YOU!!!! LOL GAWD! I have been DYING for poi! I'm so tired of paying the 40.00 overnight delivery fees for ups, just to get poi!! I'm going to check out this place this weekend!! Thanks so much!! Is it like Marukai, where you need a membership? Thanks again!!

Kirk

Hi angelic - Welcome and thanks for commenting. First Korean is just a mostly Korean Market on Convoy. I guess you were looking for poi, right? If you purchase any from there, let me know how it "held up".

pono
