This Tropical Breakfast Bruschetta is inspired by the bruschetta Chef Lee Anne Wong serves at her Oahu restaurant, Koko Head Cafe, which was the first stop on our Off Menu: Honolulu episode. Her cooking reflects food in Hawaii right now: a little indulgent, has influences of the local ethnic groups, and uses local food.
Hawaii Local Food
The Hawaiian classic dish, Saimin, is seriously amazing but the storebought stuff can also be seriously salty. Here's my Shrimp and Vegetable Saimin Noodle Soup recipe homemade version that's healthier than the original but just as Hawaiian as the original dish.
Inspired by our favorite local ingredients in Hawaii — sea salt, cacao, and coffee — this easy-to-make salty, energizing Toasted Coconut and Coffee Salted Chocolate Bark recipe is a fun twist on the traditional recipe.
