Last week’s “Foodie Edition” of The Morning After got quite a response. I received emails, comments, and had conversations with people who felt very passionate about the topic of local food sustainability. The feedback really inspired me to make a lifestyle change and include that “challenge” in my everyday life. I’ve been doing a good job at choosing local produce over imported choices and when I’m at a restaurant, I can’t help but inquire where the food I’m about to consume came from.
Last week started off with a lunch meeting with Greg Dehnert, also known as DJ GSpot on KTUH and of OOSpot Productions at Town Restaurant in Kaimuki. While we chatted about his upcoming LoveFest event, I couldn’t help but drool over the dishes being served. Town’s contemporary menu reflects the idea of eating locally, as the menu is strictly based on availability and changes daily. The restaurant’s motto: “Local first, organic whenever possible, with Aloha always.”
We chose the antipasto appetizer, a cup of papaya chicken soup, a grass-fed local beef burger, and the fresh fish served with local greens. The burger was delicious and topped with gorgonzola, bacon and fresh veggies.
