Hawaii Mom Blog: Okinawan Festival




September 4, 2011

Okinawan Festival

If you're on Oahu and looking for something to do this weekend, head to the Okinawan Festival at Kapiolani Park. The festival runs through tonight and Sunday.

A lot of people turned out on Saturday morning. They all had the same idea as me - go early to avoid the heat and long lines at the food booths.

Here's what everyone comes for - the freshly made andagi (Japanese donut).

Another popular item is the okidog - a tortilla filled with a hot dog, chili, shoyu pork, lettuce.

My friends enjoyed the okinawan soba and an andadog (Japanese version of a corndog - they use the andagi batter - mmmm!).

I opted for the yakisoba - okinawan style noodles, stir fried luncheon meat and veggies

They had ATMs available, but they were out of order! #fail

You could also buy pretty orchids like these...
