    Destination: Oahu

    crispy tofu at hula grill waikikiAs the sun set on Waikiki, the rest of our table, some 20 diners, received their pupu, appetizer,  before Lisa and me. It wasn't that the courteous servers at Hula Grill hadn't tried to place the dish they called "Smoked Big Island Abalone BLT" in front of us. More than one had tried. "No," we said again and again, shaking our heads. "We ordered vegetarian."
