To me, there’s nothing better than sharing food with friends, especially on trips.
I like to sample a lot of different things — nearly impossible when you’re dining alone. So it’s almost mandatory I have help.
Plus, it’s no fun talking to myself.
On my last day on Kauai, I enlisted the help of my girlfriend, Joy, on my last stop: Hamura Saimin, the famous saimin stand on Kress Street in Lihue.
She was game. Hamura’s was near her workplace, and she hadn’t eaten there in awhile — like, I’m sure, a lot of Kauai residents — so we set a time and me there.
It’s been a year since I’d been back on Kauai, and I always think fondly about the saimin here. Sometimes I think my taste buds are always better in my memory.
Luckily for me, they weren’t. The saimin was just as good as I had remembered.
Here’s what my last few hours on Kauai looked like:
