Watch This Before You Head to Honolulu

For most people Honolulu brings to mind beautiful white sand beaches, gentle waves, hula dancing maidens and swaying palm trees. But to those in the know, Honolulu has a happening food scene.

Hawaii has been a place where cultures meet and meld for many years now. And Honolulu, the capital city of Hawaii, is the perfect example of that.

The native people of Hawaii have a rich cultural and food tradition, and each group of immigrants brought their own foods, stories and cultures as well. It is now all bubbling away in a rich and delicious soup. Let’s have a taste?
