Sample local foods such as poke, roast pork, look funn noodles, and tropical fruits.  Bring your shopping bags with you so you can  buy fresh produce, noodles, and specialty products.

Following the tour we will enjoy lunch together at one of Chinatown’s finest restaurants.  The 5-course family-style menu cost is included in the tour price.  Please alert us in advance of any food restrictions.

The meeting location and parking suggestions will be emailed to ticket-holders 48 hours before the tour. Please note: We keep this tour size limited to 8 to ensure an intimate experience and avoid blocking already crowded sidewalks and markets, but we also need to set a minimum of 5 participants for this event in order to assure that our volunteer tour leaders’ efforts are used to good advantage.  If we don’t fill the minimum, we will offer full refunds and alert ticket holders to other upcoming tours.  Thanks for your understanding.

The cost is $55 for members and $65 for non-members, which includes the price of tastings along the tour as well as lunch.  To register, go tohttps://www.eventbrite.com/e/slow-food-oahu-chinatown-food-tour-and-lunch-tickets-22423614635

Slow Food O’ahu sponsors another Moloka’i Beef Order in April
Slow Food O’ahu is placing another order for Moloka’i beef from the livestock co-op.  This next order is anticipated to be here late April, depending on how quickly we can sell all eight portions.  Each shipment contains one cow split into 1/8 portions.  Generally you will receive about 55 pounds of meat, 1/2 in ground beef and 1/2 in roasts and steaks.   Our price for 1/8 of an animal is $400 for Slow Food members and $450 for non-members.
We pick up the order and distribute it at the Queen Lili’uokalani Botanical Garden parking lot, between 3:00 –  3:30 p.m. on the day it arrives from Moloka’i.  If you are interested in an order for a 1/8 portion, please send your check made out to Slow Food O’ahu to Laurie Carlson, 1020 Maunawili Loop, Kailua, HI 96734.

Please include your cell phone number in your order and Laurie will keep in touch with you about the timing.  It will take a few weeks to finalize the order.
