Because Hawaii is a melting pot full of rich culture, it comes with great food. Like Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Portuguese, Polynesian and more. 

Manapua is pretty much the Hawaiian version of Char siu bao which is a steamed bun filled with barbeque pork.

Foodies believe this popular item arrived in Hawaii in the 19th century when many immigrants came to the islands to work on the sugar plantations.

Manapua can be found all around the islands and is perfect to enjoy at lunch, dinner or even for a late-night snack!
