What I love most about going to Hawaii is my mom’s breakfasts! As soon as we arrive wherever we are, we head straight to KTA or another supermarket to pick up fish straight from the ocean, other home-grown ingredients, taro rolls, shrimp chips, and macadamia nut butter and call it a day! My mom sears fish in the morning, and we have it with miso soup, rice, and fresh fruit (not for me tho). And then!! FRESHLY MADE MOCHI. No, not the ice cream version, but Uncle Chad’s peanut butter mochi and butter mochi! They sell out quickly and it’s SO worth it. I like to take it down to the beach with me and sit amongst the waves and visiting turtles while the sun sears into my skin. Missing that.
