Hey, I'm in Orlando too and dying for a good plate lunch! Anyway, you can get furikake, mochi and ice cream, NOH packets, Aloha Maid juice, and lots of other ono food at this huge asian supermarket in the Vietnamese district. I'm pretty sure the address is 2100 E. Colonial Drive. Orlando, FL. There's a restaurant that's being built called Ono Lu'au on OBT, I hope it's real and not a trick like Kahuna Grill. Can't wait!

I now live in south Florida and I welcome ALL Hawaiians and I love the idea of a little Hawaii here in Florida you know the TRUE aloha sprit and I would be glad to help with any local info you may need to help.

I think you could make a fortune here if someone would open a Hawaiian restaurant
.
ALOHA AND WELCOME TO FLORIDA
OK FINE - whoever opens that restaurant be SURE to email me - I'll provide the Hawaiian music and hula gals! I've got all da good stuff - even Hawaiian Karaoke and da Kamaka ukulele bruddah. We talk story soon.

Heahea Palekaiko - (Welcome to Paradise) - This goes out to Justlooking2 who wonders why the Hawaiians should be allowed to make Florida a "little Hawaii" - First, read the book HAWAII and your eyes will be opened!
Second, who better to fill in the incredible gap of homeowners trying to sell out and get away from the ludicrous Florida taxes and insurance (IF you can even find a company who will WRITE a policy). At least for $400,000 a Hawaiian could buy a house in Fl. that will provide walking around room inside it with a yard he or she might actually be able to have a luau in without freezing their grass skirts off!

I am figuring this out now. o_O

I miss sushi terribly. I've tried a few places here and there (& I've had to travel to get to them... it's weird not having a sushi bar just down the street) but I haven't quite found one that I love yet.

I also stopped at a Japanese restaurant in a mall to order tempura chicken... & received a plate of chicken that had been 'beer-battered' & deep fried... quite similarly to those frozen fish sticks you can buy. yuck. Another restaurant wanted to charge $12 for a chicken katsu plate.

Mom sent me a box of Punaluu sweet bread and aloha shoyu last week. I was so happy! haha. I wish she could send me a plate lunch, though. There's no telling what I would do for some laulau or chicken long rice right now.

Anyway~ Anyone in the Tampa area? I am in Spring Hill right now... I have yet to meet a fellow local here.

Take Care Everyone!

I put "Tampa Plate Lunch" in Google and found these:

Weekend: How Hawaiians say 'barbecue'

and:

BEST MAC SALAD AND SPAM SUSHI
Ly-Ly's Hawaiian BBQ, 2510 McMullen-Booth Road, Clearwater; (727) 712-1988.

Where else but Hawaii could heartland classics meet up with tempura and fried rice and make for an unashamed plate lunch beloved of steam tables and breakfasty joints across the islands. Now imported to Tampa Bay as the strangest and most familiar of barbecues.

Good hunting!

Hank

Wink Hey, I live in Florida

Howzit...I live in Jacksonville with my family. We moved here in 1998 and we try to go home as much as possible. I've only met a couple of people from Hawaii here. It would be nice to hang out and talk stories with yall or anyone from Hawaii. I've been living here too long the south is starting to effect my speech. Hollah back!!
