We end the week the the Beat Bowl from Lucky Belly. This is a steaming bowl of ramen with brisket, short ribs, seaweed, beansprouts, egg and some amazing oxtail won tons.¬† Stay tune next week as we begin our Pow Wow Hawaii 2016 series. I’ve been spending the week checking out the murals and getting some photos. Check out our @HawaiiBlog on Instagram for a preview.

¬†Each year for Mardi Gras I try to seek out some good cajun/creole cuisine. One of my favorite go to places is Murphy’s Bar and Grill. This year I had the Bay Shrimp and Crawfish Etouffee. It is a very popular dish in New Orleans and fitting for Mardi Gras. Though it was hard to choose because they also had sauteed Alligator another dish that seems to only be found around Mardi Gras time. Unfortunately I had to work that night so no costume or beads pictures this year though I hear the downtown Honolulu Mardi Gras street festival will be back next year. The past two years it was moved off the streets into the bars but next year the plan is to once again return to the street festival.

We close our our Ohana Festival series with Mochi-tsuki. This pounding of the mochi is traditional activity for the Japanese people. Mochi is made from a glutinous, slightly sweet rice. This reice is steamed then put in a large stone or wooden basin called an “usu” and pounded with wooden hammers called “kine”. The mochi is then pinched off into small balls of dough and filled with azuki (sweet bean paste). This demonstration showed the pounding and making of the mochi and a sample of the freshly made mochi (shown below).
