We were lucky enough to get tickets for the first night of Merrie Monarch! This was the first time either of us has ever seen this in person, so it was really exciting and lots of fun. These photos are from my flickr account, so I can’t make them “pop up”.
And of course, because this is Big Island Grinds, the Merrie Monarch Hawaiian Plate ($8.50):
Kalua Pig & Cabbage, chicken long rice, poi, lomi salmon, white rice and haupia w/taro. Time to grind. Everything was delicious! Poi could’ve been moa sour, but that’s just my preference. Other than that, I really enjoyed it, especially while watching the beautiful hula dancers.
