We will visit Hilo, Honolulu, Kauai & Lahaina on a cruise in January. My wife wants to try poi. I understand that it's grated taro root and has all of the gustatory joy of school paste, but hey, I'll try it too. Maybe we will be surprised? Any opinions?
Can poi be purchased outside of the tourist luaus? Where would you suggest we search for it? Maybe there's a chain of "Poi Huts" or "House o' Taro". Does it come with Spam?
As you can see, my ignorance is quite impressive. Your charitable recommendations will be most appreciated.
