Steali…errr…borrowing from the TV show, what are the best things you ever ate? Food that makes you moan and groan even if you’re by yourself.
Grandma’s Okinawan pig’s feet soup Okinawa donuts (deep-fried balls of doughy goodness). My grandmother would call my Dad whenever she made pig’s feet soup (I didn’t realize the name was literal until I was older) and my Mom would sigh (she’s from Mainland Japan), but my Dad and I would rush over to have a bowl. Her donuts were good hot (though I rarely was there when she was cooking them) and even better when cold. For the longest time, I though they were supposed to be slightly stale and oily and even now will let a fresh batch sit for a couple of days to remind me of Grandma’s.
Swordfish or Marlin sashimi - Can never remember which one, but I was told it was the one that didn’t require deep sea fishing. My cousin used to go fishing every weekend and out give up part of his share. After I while I’d try everything as sashimi before I cooked the rest. Oily, smooth and the best sashimi I ever had.
Homemade prime rib - I absolutely love prime rib and tried a $50 one which was the best until I made my own. The roast wasn’t anything special and I accidentally severely undercooked it, as in the middle was raw and just heated through. I ate it by myself and couldn’t stop talking to myself as I ate it. I had a second piece the next day, but because I had to warm and cook it a bit, it lost some of the magic from the day before.
Rainbow Cake - Unique to Dee-Lite bakery in Hawaii, this super light triple layered cake (guava, passion fruit and lime) with whipped cream frosting is my go to dessert when I’m feeling down. Dobash is my favorite cake, but only a Rainbow Cake from Dee-Lite can perk me up!
