This is handy because I've been keeping a list! Some of these might be local Hawaiian names.

* Green Papaya Salad
* Longans
* Tree grapes
* purple sweet potatoes
* Abiu
* Taro
* Aloe
* Mountain Apple
* Poi
* Sugar cane
* soursop
* cacao pods
* ice cream cake (from KTA)

The nicest things there were the abiu and the green papaya salad, and the least nice things were the poi and the soursop.

I have also made lots of recipes I haven't tried before, but I haven't kept a list of those.

Oh, and Skyr of course, now it has come to the UK. It is very good with honey :)

I've quite a long list, but they are all animal-related, going to a challenging chinese resturant lately.

But, I can list Erguotou which is a chinese liquor which I quite like. Later in the year I read (OK, audibled) the Three Body Problem and was quite pleased when they went out to drink shots of Ergoutou and I knew what it was.
