National Recognition.

typical-plate-lunchSo while I’m busy being too lazy to upload my truffle pictures and recipes, there is always energy enough to navigate national newspaper food sections. For those who voted for Obama solely because he just might do something for Hawaii, they may actually have a point this week: The New York Times sent a writer down here to do a feature on the plate lunch, the gastronomical symbol of the islands that Mr. President-Elect grew up eating. And perhaps the front picture of dudes grinding at Rainbow Drive-In will dispel the myth that we wear coconut skirts and live in grass huts.

(Although I must note that the photo caption “The Thrifty and the Full” is just a tad inappropriate, since not ALL who dine in such a fashion are pinching pennies!)
