The Hawaiian Luau

  • This location is shown only to members

Ok so originally we were hoping to have a pool party in Dustin's inflatable pool and roast a pig, but the weather will probably be cold or rainy by then. This is BC after all.

But it will still be fun to have a Hawaiian Luau :)

Actually, I just want an excuse to make Spam Musubi ... and maybe even a Chocolate Haupia pie

And more importantly, for Amy to make her Huli Huli chicken again. For those of you who missed it, it was absolutely amazing. You should come just for the chicken.

Feel free to dress up. The tackier the better.

    Excellent food and fabulous Hosts Dustin and Bonnie of course and thank you for your generosity Dustin for opening up your beautiful home to us and love that patio which I think is bigger then some apartments in yaletown!? ~~~ And thanks Ming for providing us with all those chearfull shirts, really set the mood.... And if more people in vancouvers beaches wore those shirts, I would be wearing one regularly too, in spite of being so conservative! ~~~ Thanks again for the excellent food everyone, however since I did go for a long walk in the afternoon, I ended up eating not long before arriving, but sampled everything and it was excellent. ~~~ I'll look forward to the pictures of the Hula dancers?

    Unfortunately I actually can't make this one as it's my mom's birthday dinner that evening. I'm going to miss out on trying some great Hawaiian food and costumes! Have fun guys!

    I have some extra ahola shirts that I can bring for others to wear during dinner.

    And for those that need suggestions for authentic hawaiian luau cuisine:

    Kalua pig (pulled pork, wrapped in ti leaves, slow cooked)
    Laulau (a firm white fish fillet plus either chicken or pork, wrapped in taro leaves, and steamed)
    Poi (cooked taro root, mashed into a paste, sometimes mixed with milk or sugar)
    Lomi Salmon salad (basically a tomato salsa fresca, mixed with cubed salmon sashimi)

    And if none of the above catch your fancy, the locals in Hawaii love japanese, korean, philipino and chinese cuisine, so anything from those cuisines will fit in nicely.

      Haha ... That's great Ming. And you are right, Hawaiian cuisine is a mish mash of asian cultures. Bring what ever you fancy ! Maybe some veggies would be nice :) Or some drinks

    I'm either bringing korean galbi (a.k.a. maui ribs), or some a hawaiian variant of fried rice I tried at the Honolulu Side Street Inn.
