Blogger Melissa BiJeaux of popstar.com sat with your humble correspondent for breakfast at the Big City Diner. This being her first time in Hawaii, she’s trying a lot of local cuisine. She’s had poke (raw fish), poi, and laulau so far. Here, she shows us how good kim chee (Korean pickled cabbage).
“It’s salty, spicy, a little limp, but otherwise very good!” She said. I watched her eat it…she didn’t even go for the water after downing the kim chee.
She attributes her tolerance to spicy foods after years of cajun food burning out her taste buds.
