Going bananas at Hawaiian Pie Co.
If you're among the hundreds who fell in love with Hawaiian Pie Co.'s July pie of the month, the POG pie, you'd better get there today for the last of your fill before it makes way for August's special.
Working their way through the compendium of local fruit, the Hori clan settled on a wonderful three-pound, deep-dish buttery banana pie that will be available during the month of August. The cost is $23 frozen, or $24 baked.
While picking up the last of the POG pies today, you'll also spot Grandpa Yasu's grab-and-go pastele pans ($3.50). If that's hard to imagine, think baked manapua with a pastele filling of pork, olives and spices. Yummers, and perfect for a quick lunch.
Hawaiian Pie Co. is located at 508 Waiakamilo Road. Call (808) 988-7828.
