This dinner sounds like my idea of heaven. Or, at the very least, the really, really great waiting room to it.

I have a kind of fear/love thing with the stinky bean. I'll just enjoy the pictures from a safe distance this time. :)

@joyyamazaki Thank you for all that info, Joy. It's important for people with celiac disease to know these details. I'm really impressed that they have a dedicated, separate gluten free facility in Japan. Fantastic!

@Melissa808 @Annoddah_Dave I'm, like, all over this blog, Melissa. Totally all over it. ;)
@Melissa808 @Annoddah_Dave Do they have angel hair gf brown rice pasta??? I'm in shock.
@turkfontaine No, MEEEEEEEEE!!! Here I am, commenting on Melissa's blog AGAIN!!! ;)
Beautiful, beautiful photos of...well...masterpieces! Thank you for documenting the meal so the rest of us can vicariously enjoy these chefs' art.

Did you happen to notice if they boil and make their gluten free noodles in separate equipment than their wheat noodles? Sounds really picky, but some folks have really, really bad gluten intolerance (celiac disease) and this makes all the difference for them.
Melissa, I am SO THERE. Almost. Soon, though, and more than once while I'm back home, definitely. THANK YOU for this gluten-free friendly PSA!!! For once, freshly made gluten free pasta, and mentaiko pasta that doesn't come from an instant packet! :) Drooling already in anticipation!
@nonstopmari I DO! Fried with garlic and a guy-shoulder hug. :)

@nonstopmari @Melissa808 Yeah...so sad, yeah? It's just not the same with rice noodles.

@Melissa808 I wish, I wish. I think wheat flour gluten is what makes saimin noodles so nice and chewy. :(
Now I want a gluten-free Merriman's samin... :(
AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!! Bucket List dining, now available in HONOLULU!!! WOW!!!

@nonstopmari @EurekaGal I think I saw some pictures of the hukilau and of one of us holding a big fish. Dad said that was in Kihei, when Kihei was a LOT of kiawe and some houses by the road. My memories of that day were of Dad jumping out of the car and running down to the water to help. I'd never seen him do that before. I wonder if people still do hukilau?

I wonder if that hukilau was in Kihei on a trip to Maui to visit Aunty and Uncle?
OK. I know what's on my itinerary for the next trip home. :)

@Melissa808 the katsuobushi over rice with a poached egg on top was to die for. I'm craving it and wish I could go back for another bowl. The rice was so good, too, and I NEVER rave about rice. YUUUUUUUMMMMMMM!!!

Hey Spicy Tomato! NICE photo galleries! :) Feels like I was there. Almost. Well, except for not getting all that good food to eat. And not being able to stand outside in the rain in shorts. And...well. You know the deal. :)
