Let's start the music and the plotting and planning for your Hawaii getaway - virtual style.

Let's begin with the larder - 
Coffee, mango, pineapple, guava jam, coconut and coconut milk, portuguese sausage, sweet bread, pork - lots of it!, Spam, rice, rum.

poke bowl - raw chunked fish, rice, and great veggies all in one bowl!

acai bowl - this is basically a thick smoothie. Mashed frozen fruits, flash-frozen acai berries. Granola, seeds and nuts can be added. 

You know there are two constants with Hawaiians - outdoors and tropical produce!

Set up the yard so you can eat outdoors. If it's nighttime, consider Tiki torches.

Utilize bamboo, keep windows open if the weather is good, go barefoot, dance while you cook, grill outside, find fresh fish!
