Hello all! Chouwhounders have been invaluable to me in the past, and I'm hoping you all can help me out again!
My husband and I will be taking a slightly belated honeymoon to Oahu mid-February. We've rented a beautiful little villa on the in Waialua, North Shore, and also within biking distance to Haleiwa.
We have been lucky enough to be able to travel in the past, but neither us has ever been to Hawaii (we live in Nova Scotia, Canada).
We are hoping to do some dining out, but would also like to prepare some of our meals in the villa.
So, Chowhounders, I have 2 questions for you:
1. Would you recommend us to bring any essential food ingredients with us? I've been on islands in the past where it has been very difficult to get staple items, and having never been to Hawaii, I'm unsure.
2. Do you have any Chowhoundworthy not-to-miss eats suggestions for us? We will have a rental car, so getting around will not be a problem. We are adventurous eaters, and love hole in the walls just as much as fine dining (if not more!) I particularly love baking (it's my undoing)
