In my notes from Honolulu I downplayed how much better the food was there — for the price you pay — compared to what you can get back home.
Case in point: returning from Diamond Head (an easy trek, highly recommended) we took a Lyft ride back to our hotel. The driver, “L.J.”, turned out to be Ljubiša from Novi Sad, Serbia. Needless to say, we had a good conversation, which led to food, which let to us making a pit stop at “the best doughnut place on the island”. Selling Portuguese doughnuts, of all things.
I don’t know if they were the best on the island, but they were better than anything we’ve had in DC in our seven years here!
