Visit Big Island: Na`au Restaurant Pop-Up

There's a new must-try on the Big Island, Na`au Restaurant!  Technically, there is no physical restaurant location yet, but the restaurant is doing pop-ups!

Na`au Restaurant focuses on wild, coveted, local ingredients, and part of the mission is to educate future generations on these ingredients - many of which I never even heard of before, and most I didn't even realize grew in Hawaii!

And full disclosure - I am great friends with the Chef / Owner, Brian Hirata (we've known each other since high school), and I am actually part of the Na`au team, so rather than share all of my opinions that may come off biased because of my involvement, I will simply share photos from the very first media dinner, and you can read what the media had to say on their Instagram posts (@nadinekam, @melissa808, @incureablepicure).
