Aloha! I enjoyed reading the comments from people all over. Chicken Hekka was a family favorite on Sunday growing up in Waipahu, HI. I had an uncle who was a "primo" cook too and his food was always very ono. The cooks food was alway a measurement of their love being passed on or shown in their presentation. Thanks for the recipe! wish I could find the fried tofu in Houston like the ones they made in Hawaii.
Warmest Aloha!


Mahalo Rick! Thanks for stopping by and taking time to comment. This is a "small kid time" favorite of mine.


I grew up in waipio, a pineapple camp in the area of what is now mililani on Oahu, Hawaii. When I was in the 5th grade in kipapa elementary school our principal took our class, 4th to 6th grades, to kemoo farms in wahiawa near the main gate at schofield barracks. We were served chicken Hakka with rice and Yellow pickled daikon. That was so delicious. I can’t find it in California. I miss the food in Hawaii.


Hi Nick - Depending where you live in California; you should be able to get Takuan at Japanese markets....though it may not be as "sweet" as the local style in Hawaii - I usually shop at Marukai and you can get local kine stuffs also at Tokyo Central and Nijiya Market also has some "local brands". Once you have the basics, you can fill in with stuffs from the Japanese market. Good luck and thanks for taking the time out to comment!
