Trend Spotting: The Paper Plate Lunch
By November 24, 2008 9:52 AM
Last week, New York Times
writer Jennifer Steinhauer forecasted the
rise of the paper plate lunch
, a traditional Hawaiian meal that
usually includes white rice and mayo-loaded macaroni salad. Steinhauer credits president-elect Barack Obama
, who publicly craved the combo, with bringing national--and possibly international--recognition to the carb-heavy lunch.
Locally, check out 8 Island Hawaiian BBQ
in Boulder for chef-owner Michael Iuchi's take on the meal
. Your best bet: The
fried-to-perfection chicken katsu with island dipping sauce, macaroni, and a green salad.
