Visit Hawai`i Island: FORC

FORC Restaurant is one of my favorite restaurants on the Big Island. With Chef Allen Hess at the helm, FORC offers local dishes with a focus on Paniolo culture.

Maluhia Farms Butterleaf

The Butterleaf was an actual intact butterleaf!  It was quite the presentation, although a little challenging to cut up and serve.  

Mushroom Ali`i Poke

The Mushroom Ali`i Poke was my fave dish.  I love mushrooms, and I appreciated this vegan twist on a tako poke.  

Peppercorn Clams
Fresh Baked Portuguese Bread

The Fresh Baked Portuguese Bread is amazing on its own, or order the Peppercorn Clams so you can dip the bread in the broth!

Portuguese Chicken Leg

Goat Tacos

I had the Goat Tacos before, but on this visit, the Goat Tacos were so much better.  I loved how flavorful it was.

FORC Steak

Hoio Salad
Waipio Poi

The Waipio Poi was served with housemade bacon, for a delish twist on "kalua pork and poi."

Chef's Hawaiian Meal

The Chef's Hawaiian Meal is essentially a laulau of the day.  The protein varies based on availability and changes weekly.  They'll serve oxtail or turkey tail laulau, and on the night we went, we had chicken and pork belly laulau.  What a dish!  

Miso Lamb

Panna Creme Brulee

The Panna Creme Brulee is a hybrid Panna Cotta and Creme Brulee dish. 

Chocolate Tart

I'm a chocoholic by nature, so I loved the decadent Chocolate Tart.

FORC is a great place to dine to get a taste of local dishes with a Filipino and Portuguese twist.  Go with friends so you can try out as much of the menu as possible!
