What are some good local foods?

Don't know what linguincia is? But it sounds like portuguese sausage because that's just what a "local" breakfast is. Two eggs, rice, and portuguese sausage. Sorry to say don't know what a "pig-pickin's" is either. The slow cooked pig in done in a imu (hole in the ground with hot lava rocks, ti leaves and banana leaves). It is usally done to celebrate 1 year old birthday, anniversaries, weddings, or other local celebrations.

Kalbi (beef short ribs marinated), kim chee (fermented vegetables), portuguese sausage (spicy sausage), hulihuli chicken (grilled chicken), Kalua pig (luau pig)

Char siu, saimin, Loco Moco, poke, sashimi, or a good plate lunch.

portuguese sausage (spicy sausage): Is this linguincia? If so, I like it cooked/drained and scrambled up with eggs. If you have it there, I will be happy to share my receipe - it IS delicious. I can't wait to experience the different tastes from the mainland. Do you have any "pig-pickin's" in your back yard? I remember a slow cooked pig when I was at a friends home. They were getting ready for a big family celebration. Loads of fun and what an everlasting experience.
