      What a wonderful this is. I love Asian food; Chinese food is one of my personal favorites. I visited Oahu back in 2000 (due for a re-visit, I'm sure) and was impressed with all the array of Asian cuisines: Japanese, Thai, Korean and of course Chinese. Thanks for this wonderful hub.

      Voted up and away
