I believe George made it for a food contest. There were small samples. I was surprised it tasted so ono! It had a lot of pleasing flavors. See how I have remembered it theses past few years!👍 Honestly I didn’t miss the pork in traditional lau lau and call lau lau my Hawaiian TV dinner. Everything you need in an onolicious Hawaiian meal is in a lau lau… with poi❣️ Cancel reply Your review ...All fields and a star-rating are required to submit a review.Your name ... Your email ...
