Ala Moana Shopping Center, Honolulu
ONE REASON OR SHOULD I SAY THE MAIN REASON I HAVE REALLY LIKED THIS STORE IS THAT THE OWNER AND I HAD A LANGUAGE TOGETHER MANY YEARS A GO IT SEEMS... BUT THE IDEA OF CRACK SEED IN HAWAII IS VERY POPULAR AND ALSO VERY TASTY.ONE HAS TO TRY IT AND THEN IT CAN BE SOMETHING THAT YOU COME TO LIKE VERY MUCH Crack seed, a popular local snack in Hawaii, comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, and flavors. Also known as Li Hing Mui or See Mui, crack seed is actually a variety of dehydrated and preserved fruits Before canned goods were available, merchants heading west across the rugged terrain of China carried dehydrated fruits to supplement their meals of plain rice. The salt in crack seed was useful for long distance travelers in several ways: besides replenishing the salt lost by the body in perspiration, it also helps the body retain water and lessen muscle cramps.
Crack seed was first shipped and sold directly from mainland China but storeowners in Honolulu's Chinatown gradually began to customize seeds for local taste buds.

We enjoyed going to the Ala Moana Shopping Center. It was convenient by bus. It had a grocery store, otherwise as a shopping centre, it was normal. We loved snorkelling, and landed up buying snorkelling gear at the Sears in this mall.
The mall might have been ordinary, however we really enjoyed eating meals at their food court. You could eat reasonably priced meals from any corner of the world. The food court stalls seemed to be privately owned, and not A&W or Arbys, etc. We especially enjoyed the Hawaiian, Italian, Chinese and Japanese fare.
What to buy: Try the Food Court!
