Fallen Off the Eaten Path

Black Sheep Cream Co.

A quaint little ice-cream shop can be found in Waipio, near Costco and the ever-busy parking lot surrounding it. Black Sheep Ice-cream is a unique little parlor, filled with an array of different flavors to satisfy your cravings on a cold or warm day. The shop itself gives off a welcoming, vintage look to the entire room. With mostly wooden furniture, hand written signs, charming sheep themes and witty menu options give the entire atmosphere a completely unique and authentic vibe. 

Pastele Stew

 

Cooking in a kitchen all day long, side to side, mother Valray Jeremiah and daughter Kawena Roque work hard to create their cultural dish.  Both mother and daughter spend hours cutting the pork to its needed size.  Together, they create a dish known to be pastele stew.  Pastele stew derives from the Puerto Rican culture, using pork as its main meat more times than not.  This delicacy should be enjoyed by all, not only because of the cultural meaning behind it, but also due to its explosion of flavor and texture.

Granita

Granitas (granita siciliana) are a frozen dessert that originated from Sicily. They are a frozen, shaved mixture of water, sugar and assorted flavors. The texture varies based on how it is frozen and scraped, and range from very smooth to very chunky. Granitas are great as desserts, palate cleansers or cool, refreshing snacks.
