In a traditional Hawaiian meal, poi is the primary starch on the plate. It performs the identical function in a dish that rice usually would: It is filling, and it enhances the opposite flavors within the meal. On this episode of Eating on a Dime, host Lucas Peterson stops by the Waiahole Poi Manufacturing unit for a really Hawaiian meal (and a music lesson on the nostril flute).
