Happy Aloha Friday! We had an exceptional week and hope you did too. In Food, Fiestas at Paco’s Tacos House, that runs in our “Tastes of Kauai” column in today’s The Garden Island newspaper, you can learn what the brothers Aguilar have in store for Kapaa Art Walk (tomorrow) and Cinco de Mayo. They have opened a new restaurant in Kapaa, so you’ll find out what they serve as well.
This Sunday, our “On the Farm” column explores an heirloom variety of eggplant and includes an excellent pupu recipe. You can get these rare eggplant starts from Heaven on Earth Starts at the Saturday Namahana farmers market and the Start Cart in front of Hoku Natural Foods Market.
We’ve added another Kauai food tour. Since we’ve received excellent feedback from our guests about A Taste of Kilohana, along with attentive service, the knowledge of our guide and the locally-sourced, off-the-menu lunch, we thought we’d serve up another! Now we offer A Culinary Romp Through Paradise, which takes place on a Friday, and for our hard-working residents, A Taste of Kilohana, which takes place on two Saturdays a month. We also have our Farmers Market Tour, which takes place every Wednesday.
