Lau Lau


I really love Hawaiian food culture.  Mainly because there's places like this all over the side of the road.


Last time I was in Hawaii, Lau Lau absolutely stole my heart.  Lau Lau is brilliant in it's simplicity.  You take a big chunk of pork butt and cut it into smaller chunks.  Salt, pepper.  Then grab a chunk, put a piece of fatback on top and wrap the whole thing in taro leaves.  Wrap it in foil and steam that shit.  Unwrap.  Eat.  Enjoy.  We are talking eyes-rolling-back -in your-head good here, people.
