Well, thank goodness for Rachel Laudan and her new "The Food of Paradise: Exploring Hawaii's Culinary Heritage" (Cookbook Review, June 18). If I had read one more word about how high-toned chefs like Roy Yamaguchi or Jean-Marie Josselin have finally "created" a Hawaiian "regional cuisine," I would have screamed. Anyone who's been to Hamamura's Saimin Cafe in Lahaina or the Rainbow Drive-In or Ono Foods in Honolulu knows that Hawaiians have had their own wonderful, funky sort of local soul food for years.

David Wilhelm has sold Barbacoa, which he opened about two years ago near the entrance to Balboa peninsula. The buyer is Jean-Marie Josselin, a cookbook author and owner of the Pacific Cafe on the island of Kauai. The selling price was not revealed, but Greg Solomon, vice president of Wilhelm's West Coast Restaurant Ventures in Newport Beach, said Josselin made "a good offer."

Barbacoa on Pacific Coast Highway, which was closed in January and sold to a Kauai-based restaurateur, will reopen next month as Shane at Newport Beach--but without the restaurateur. Jean-Marie Josselin had planned a Pacific Rim Cafe for the site. But he discovered that he didn't have time to run it along with his two restaurants on the islands, according to Robert Fidler.

EATING IN HAWAII is like having airline food three times a day," Alice Waters of Chez Panisse told a Hawaii-bound friend not long ago. "Take some olive oil and vinegar with you. That way at least you'll be able to pick some wild watercress and have a decent salad." She was hardly exaggerating.

October 21, 1990 | JANICE WALD HENDERSON, Henderson is a food and travel writer and cookbook author who travels frequently to Hawaii.
Ask travelers what they like about Hawaii and they quickly tout the winsome weather, beautiful beaches and haute hotels. Sophisticated dining is rarely mentioned. A dish like mahi mahi garnished with bananas and orchids was considered adventurous cuisine. Until recently, that is, and the birth of a new breed of serious restaurants. Lately a number of first-rate chefs have invaded the Islands, and it's now possible for the most demanding food lover to dine well.

There are fund-raisers and fund-raisers. No matter how worthwhile the cause, some are duds--affairs where you wish you had just sent a contribution and missed all the hullabaloo. One fund-raiser that is not to be missed, however, is the extravaganza put together each year by energetic Los Angeles chef Wolfgang Puck of Spago and Chinois on Main to benefit the Los Angeles Chapter of Meals on Wheels.

It was dawn and a lone surfer rode a wave onto the beach at Kapaa as distant clouds reflected the sun's first rays. For another hour, the Kauai I'd known years earlier would be caught in the morning peacefulness and gentle breezes that bathe the island with the fragrance of ginger and plumeria. A light rain had fallen during the night so that dewdrops glowed on hibiscus flowering beside the ocean. Soon workers would be hurrying off to jobs at hotels and resorts from Princeville to Poipu.

Nine-year-old Trinity O'Neill of Monrovia grabs the little blue cellophane bag with the mushroom cloud on the label. She opens it, braces herself on the living room sofa and pops a Mega Warhead into her mouth. Her eyes bug out in stunned surprise, then snap shut. Her lips pull into an extreme pucker and she bounces up and down, slapping both hands on top of her head.
