Korean style foods are very popular in Hawaii. It's gained in popularity big-time overtaking Japanese and Chinese as far as Asian foods is concerned. I got this recipe from a friend of mine who loves to cook, a retired office worker all she does all day is delve in cooking websites, cookbooks, and of course food shows on television. Try this out.
