A friend here on the mainland came up with the best description I've ever heard for poi - Hawai'ian soul food. It must be genetic or something because it really does satisfy my Hawai'ian soul. I love poi with just about anything and can't choose just one thing - it's all soo good :wub: Here's a list of "anything":

Lau-Lau
Kalua Pig
Kalua Pig & Cabbage
Beef Stew
Deer Stew
Buffalo Stew
Fresh Salmon
Smoked Salmon
Teriyaki Chicken
Steamed Carrots
Steamed Luau
Steamed Spinach
Roast Turkey
Beef Chuck & Onions

After writing this I am having a major poi attack!

Yup! All of the above especially lau lau although I don't like chicken lau lau that much.
Our dogs Manele & Koele love poi mixed with their food. Maggie our basenji-pitbull
absolutely loved poi, coincidentally enough when she was dying she really would only
like poi and we had a container of Hanalei Poi dated 9/28/04 which happened to
be the day she left this planet, very chicken skin! :hmmm:

I don't agree. You'll notice that this board is relatively low key in terms
of threads/posts for some reason. :hmmm:

I have always wanted to eat poi but geography has prevented me from doing so. I haven't found it in the Philippines, China and here in Korea. Don't be too hard on the members in here. If there is no/little response, it doesn't automatically mean almost everyone don't eat poi.

Yeah, I've also noticed not many folks post here either. I live in the Pacific Northwest and there's usually numerous postings daily in the PNW board.

Fresh poi is flown here from Hawai'i and available at a couple of restaurants and 3 stores on a regular basis so there are lots of other poi eaters around here.

You guys think I should post "What's your favorite thing to eat with poi?" on that post?

I like to eat poi mostly with salty Hawaiian food: kalua pig, lomi salmon, lau lau. I'm always dumbfounded when non-Hawaii folk say that they think poi is so bland. Aren't most starches bland? Rice, potatoes, pasta?

Recently bought a 1 lb container of Hanalei poi for the bf to eat with a lau lau I got from the KCC farmer's market. I cringed at the $7 price tag but bought it anyway. I ate the rest of it solo and thinned with water and "seasoned" with sugar. :shock:
