oh man, I finally got myself down to King's Hawaiian Bakery and Restaurant in Torrance, and it was exactly the fix I needed. It wasn't the best Hawaiian food, but then I'm easy to please. In Honolulu I used to get my fix at the Poi Bowl in Ala Moana, that's how easy to please I am.

Anyway, the one thing I really missed was poi. I had kalua pig with rice and lomi salmon, but I had forgotten how fatty the pork could be. It really needed the acidity of poi to cut the greasyness. But since it sounds like you can't even get poi in Hawaii anymore, I guess finding it on the mainland is out of the question.

So, yeah.
