Before we head into farmers market business, I want to highlight an upcoming event that is being spearheaded by our own Chef Keaka Lee and Ho Farms. It’s called
THE HO LEE GRAIL and it’s a collaboration with Keaka and Shin Ho from Ho Farms with a prix fixe dinner on Wednesday, October 25, 6pm at The Pig and the Lady. The menu is still being finalized but it will be a truly fun and eclectic one, sourced with as many produce and ingredients provided by Ho Farms. To read more on the event, and to make reservations, head over to the event's website.
Now, to the main event this week, the farmers market specials! We are on our regular schedule for this first week of October. Check out the Mama Le specials for the week:
BUN THANG — chicken, egg, daikon, shiitake, ham, rauram mint, hot peppers, vermicelli noodles, in a light pork broth
TOM THIT RIM — caramelized pork belly with shrimp, slow cooked in a clay pot
GRILLED PORK BELLY BANH MI — grilled pork belly marinated with mama le’s special recipe
Finally, next week Monday, October 9, we will be serving food at the ‘Ilima Awards Fundraiser at Diamond Head Theatre. We are also vying for some awards, so hopefully, we will hear of some potentially good news during the awards presentation! If you want to support a good cause and buy a ticket or corporate table, head to the ‘Ilima Awards website.
As always, the full menu and schedule is over at the Farmers Market page.
