Taro Pancakes and More: What to Eat at Taro Fest in Hana


Taro is believed to have the greatest life force of all foods and is a staple food of the Hawaiian diet, supplemented by other traditional foods like breadfruit, sweet potato, ferns, fruit, fish and seaweed. The Polynesians brought the taro plant to Hawaii as long ago as 450 A.D. As one of the oldest cultivated crops throughout the islands, it is associated with the god Kane, life giver, and considered a sacred part of daily Hawaiian life.This annual festival celebrates the crop with interactive exhibits, lectures, taro making demonstrations, food stalls, taro related film screenings and live entertainment.On Sunday, May 1, the famous taro pancake breakfast will be held, with loco moco bowls also available. For those unfamiliar, loco moco consists of white rice topped with a hamburger patty, a fried egg, and brown gravy.
