Dim Sum and Aloha

Aloha from our 50th state! Here I am in Honolulu visiting my mom for Mother's Day. You'd think I would post a photo of the palm trees or a beach scene, but the first thing I did when I landed was go to get some dim sum with my mom. Since I'm visiting her, most of what you'll be hearing about my trip is the Chinese food in Hawaii. So we went to one of my mom's favorite place, Legend Seafood Restaurant at the Chinese Cultural Plaza near Chinatown. I'll do a full review later, but here's a photo of my mom's favorite dish to eat for dim sum ... chicken feet. It was all for her. I have never attempted to even try eating it. Wait, I think I did eat it once and nearly choked so probably have some repressed, scarred childhood memory. Luckily there are a lot more other things for me to eat here. More later!

Excellent to be visiting your Mom for Mother's Day!!!!!! Speaking from personal experience, the one thing we mom's of already grown-up people want and appreciate more than anything is time with our kids. Forget the cards, forget the flowers (and absolutely do NOT give me candy!!!) A hug and a few hours of conversation is like gold to almost every mom I know.

Have a great time feasting together...and don't skimp on the hugs :-)

what a great way to spend mother's day for both of you! I'm looking forward to reading about the best of Hawaii's chinese cuisine.

Great that you are visiting your mom on Mother's Day! Best present ever.

My Tokyo-raised mother says Hawaii has the best -- and sometimes better -- sushi than what she's had in Japan. As much as I'm looking forward to the Chinese food adventures, I'd love to read about your sushi experiences.

Have a wonderful time!
