|Honolulu Chinatown 2011|
Thursday, October 27, 2011
Art and Flea. Vendors selling vintage items, collectibles, handcrafted items, and interesting knick knacks gather to fill the parking lot and the entire space of a local coffee house/cafe', Fresh Cafe'. Twirlers twirl their LED hula hoops, the DJ spins his records, and the people gather to be a part of an exciting and hip mini-market. A youthful and energetic crowd 20's and 30's roam the market in search for unique items. I purchased a domino set that was handcrafted out walnut wood with gold metal inlay for $8.

Night Market Hero carried a simple plot with a political overtone, a boy meets girl undertone, and food were mere symbols of their relationships. It left me hanging because the food was not the primary subject and I expected to more shots of exotic dishes thus I was inspired to check out Honolulu's very own 888 Market in Chinatown. Click here to see my dish that I had for lunch for $3.50 no tax on facebook.

It began to drizzle, then rain, then heavily, and then it stopped. It then began to drizzle again, then the sun came out, then it rained again. This was the kind of weather we had today.

The farmer's market in Makiki gathers every Thursday evening at St. Clement's church on the corner of Makiki and Wilder street. Small in size but big on prepared foods, there are booths that sell Thai dishes, kettle corn, stews, crepes, etc. . . Of course a farmer's market wouldn't be much without fruits and vegetables so with fresh papayas, pineapples, melons, lettuce, onion, and other produce, the people of the neighborhood gather to have dinner, buy produce, and to socialize.

|Click here to see another photo of the poke' dish on facebook|
Some may say, "Ewwwwwww, that's raw fish!!!" A local favorite when the fish is cubed and diced and served raw, it is called poke'. Not pronounced poke, but p-oh-keh. If you like raw fish or are adventurous, here is the recipe that I used:
1. 1/2 lb. of the freshest ahi/tuna, can substitute with marlin (but not quite the same)
2. Dash of sesame oil
3. 1/4 cup chopped green onions
4. 1/2 cup soba sauce
5. 1/2 cup soy sauce
6. Dash of tobasco
Dice the fish into 3/4" cubes. Keep the fish chilled in a separate container. Mix the soba sauce and soy sauce together then add the tobasco sauce to taste and lastly a dash of sesame oil. When ready to serve add the fish to the sauce and sprinkle the green onions on top. Mix the fish with the sauce only when ready to serve or it may ruin the fish.

Happy Tuesday everyone. Without the colorful dustpans and brooms, this alleyway would be just an ordinary narrow passageway. The Chinatown shop to the right of these vibrant plastic brooms was packed with small medium and large steel bowls, metal strainers with bamboo handles, cleaning supplies, various pots and pans, aluminum stacking steamers, cutting boards, knives, etc... Thus, these sweepers were stored here for space.

|Click here to see more photos of the swap meet on facebook.|
The Kamehameha swap meet is open to buyers and sellers three times a week on the weekends and on Wednesdays. There may be a deal on something that may be worthless to someone but a gem to yet another. For sale were yellow ballet shoes hanging on a bike, power and hand-held tools, bright aloha print clothing, mechanical parts mixed with baby items, vintage fans placed next to vhs tapes and glass vases, coconut juice straight from the nut, a section for meats and vegetables, etc... It has been over ten years since the last time I had visited this swap meet and it is exactly the way I remembered it to be less the collectors who had their hands in a little bit of everything.
