I’m thinking about doing a Honolulu gelateria round-up since there are so few good ones, and the term “authentic” is a term of the past that should be disregarded until real chefs put the meaning back in. La Gelateria on Cedar Street is undoubtedly the best…or maybe was, since owner Maurice Grasso has sold the business to non-Italians after 28 years. I’m heartbroken but understand that the man needs his retirement; passion may never wane but physical capability unfortunately does.
Now that I’m a dorming student at UH, I finally have the opportunity to sample all the restaurants Central and East Honolulu have to offer–I think I’ll start with Indian and Middle Eastern, since that is one of my favorites. Hopefully I remember to bring my new camera along.
Hope you’re eating well in 2009!
