Since Apr 2010

35-49 year old female

honolulu, HI

I've travelled through 38 countries on six continents, but Hawaii will always be home. I was born and raised on Maui, so you'll often find me shopping at the farmers market there or scoping out the latest Honolulu restaurant or bar opening. When I travel, I'm always up for a food mission - whether seeking out a snake dinner in Hanoi, a swanky closed door asado dinner in Buenos Aires, or the perfect roast chicken in Paris. I love to find out where the locals go for the best anticuchos in Cusco, the best cocktails in Portland, or the spiciest curry in Chiang Mai. Learning about people and cultures through sharing a meal is my favorite way to experience the world. I try to travel slowly to really get a feel for things to do and see beyond the tradition touristic sights. I recently spent five months in South America doing just that. Whether I'm at home in Hawaii or tasting my way through the world one salty-sweet adventure at a time, you can follow along at www.ShoyuSugar.com.
