Welcome to new Hawaii food blog: The Tasty Island
Thanks to Reid (of `ono kine grindz) who mentioned a new food blog on the scene, The Tasty Island, by Pomai. Go check it out.
Hawaii has some great food blogs. I've included links to some over on the right side of this page. Clicking the name of the blog gets you to the main page, clicking on an article will generally bring up only the one article.
I noticed that `ono kine grindz continues its partnership with the Downtown Planet, carrying a high-quality pdf of their weekly restaurant review. This is an excellent example of a cross-media partnership. The Downtown Planet is gaining on the Weekly by offering quality images and posting its full issue on the web. Check it out--from their Mac to your computer, nothing withheld. You get the complete issue at home, all the features, including a restaurant review and food calendar.
The Planet seems to have embraced the web. As the traditional dailies continue to suffer declines in readership, blogs and internet-aware weekly papers are likely to pick up much of the slack, especially among younger readers. The weeklies are also more nimble. Who knows, perhaps one day a weekly paper will include material from the food blogs.
If you're here, you know that food blogs are where the action really is.
