More from Aloha Ma Maison

From left: ahipokē and açaí bowl

This may look like an odd combination, but they were two Hawaiian dishes that I hadn't tried before, and they probably couldn't get any healthier than that. The one on the left was ahipokē, or a raw tuna appetizer. All of the soy sauce, chili, and onions took me a bit by surprise, but it went down quickly, and certainly was refreshing.

I followed that with the thing on the right, which was an açaí bowl. Yes, it was based on that elusive superfood, and it sure looked healthy with the oats and fresh fruit on it too. What I didn't expect though, was the scoop of ice cream underneath. I guess it wasn't that healthy after all. Isn't this stuff usually done with Hawaiian shave ice instead?
