Oahu Food Crawl Part 3: Best dessert ever!


Oahu Food Crawl Part 3: Best dessert ever at The Dole Plantation (and an unscheduled fruit stand stop.)

This is part 3 of my 4-installment Oahu food crawl:

4 – It’s all worth is at Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck

Dole Plantation

What I liked best: Furikake Salmon Pokē, Kahlua Pork Wontons

Stop two was a place I’d been jonesing to try every since I watched Guy Fieri (a hero of mine) hit it on his Hawaii episode of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Chef Elmer Guzman operates a small but efficient kitchen that delivers the freshest, tastiest and most delectable Hawaiian Seafood dishes.

Oahu Food Crawl Pt.1 – Leonard’s Hawaii
