Waiahole Poi Factory continuing Traditional Hawaiian Food

HONOLULU (KHON2) - On the east side of O'ahu stands Waiahole Poi Factory, known for 'ono Hawaiian food.

In the ahupua'a of Waiahole, on the corner of Kamehameha Hwy and Waiahole Valley Rd, Waiahole Poi Factory sells Hawaiian food today, but originally started in the early 1900's as a Poi Factory.  

Owner Keliko Hoe continues the business and traditions from his parents.

We talk story with Keliko to learn about not just what food is available there, but also the traditional means of making poi.  Also, the importance of poi and kalo in Hawaiian traditions.

If you are heading towards the Waiahole area, you can't miss the poi factory.
