If you love local food ...

Especially Hawaiian food, you gotta read this.

Jackie Young explores a few local mainstays: People's Cafe (never been there), Highway Inn (awesome) and Young's Fish Market (nope).

I know the new "fusion" cuisine movement has merit, and I'm totally in favor of sampling those creative dishes. But deep down, all I want every now and then is laulau, poi, lomi salmon, ahi (or aku) poke and kalua pig. Haupia optional.

Lucky thing I don't live next door to Highway Inn. I'd be 300 pounds by now.
