Eating Local on Vacation

The past few months I've thought a lot about eating local, but this was my first chance to think about it while on a trip. Hawaii was ideal for it because everything is so expensive. We had a full kitchen in our condo so we could eat in whenever we wanted. I love to eat out, but definitely not three times a day with kids!

While I know our Honey Nut Cheerios were definitely not a local buy, we did manage to try out lots of local food - ahi, shrimp, mahi mahi, poke, pineapple, milk, Love's bread, chips. It was a great way to broaden our food horizons, learn more about the local culture, and save money!

Definitely something we'll think about on future trips! What about you - what local foods have you discovered while travelling?
