My husband was born in Hawaii and is of Japanese descent. He grow up eating a lot different than I did. He left Hawaii when he was 8 but still has fond memories of different foods from different cultures that are prevalent in Hawaii.
This breakfast with rice with hot tea poured over it and topped with a raw egg was a common one for him. So one morning I set out to surprise him with a fond memory of eating breakfast in the hills of Hawaii.
