Throughout our history, Hawaii has been an oasis in the middle of the Pacific Ocean for weary travelers during the growth of Hawaii’s industry.  During the 1800’s there were a large influx of migrant workers brought to Hawaii to work in the growing sugar industry.  Along with them the workers brought their families and their unique culinary style. The Christmas Eve menu features our twist on some of the cuisine that was brought to the Islands from our distant ‘Ohana (family).

Here is an idea of what to expect next week for our Christmas Eve feast:
