There are many awesome things to eat while on vacation in Hawaii and with every visit, I discover even more good stuff. From the traditional Hawaiian food to local staples such as the Loco Moco, there's a never-ending buffet line of choices for the finicky eater.
When it comes to fine dining on the island of Oahu, Alan Wong's Restaurant definitely comes out on top of most people's must-visit list. Winner of numerous awards, this local favorite is known for fresh, innovative cuisine, fusing Asian and Western flavors with local ingredients.
One of my favorite dishes is the one shown above and it's no ordinary tomato salad. Just look at that beauty! If you look closely, you'll see that the tomato is skinned and sliced. It lies in a shallow bath of a sauce infused with the flavors of li hing mui. It's a unique salad course that must be ordered on a first visit to the restaurant.
