Food from the Magical Island of Kauai

This summer I was fortunate enough to be able to arrange a trip to the magical island of Kauai, Hawaii. My journey would not have been the same without the amazing people I spent time with, but the food was also definitely a major highlight!

Please enjoy a little gallery of some of the delicious, local, organic food I enjoyed while I was visiting this beautiful place.

Rolinea fruit

The inside of a rolinea: it tastes like lemon and mango custard.


Beautiful papayas

Banana meets papaya


Best shave ice ever with ice cream and gummi worms



Starfruit pancakes

Cracking coconuts at Hanalei Farmers' Market

Acai with granola and banana

Pita pizzas with local cherry tomatoes, goat cheese and basil

Kale was a staple the entire time I was there. Officially my favourite vegetable.


Choyote -- like a really hard zucchini

Cherry tomato harvest



Mondo papaya


A little veggie dish I cooked up

Kamut with olive oil, coconut oil and sea salt

Kamut and organic wine

A delicious fish sandwich at Common Ground, an amazing place.

Beautiful kale salad with avocado and nasturtiums

Ahi tuna from Kilauea Fish Market, the place with the best fish tacos in town.

Speaking of which...

Ono fish tacos from Kilauea Fish Market

I cannot recommend visiting this island enough, even if only for the glorious food!

Aloha :)
