We went to Sams Club today. The rotisserie chicken price went up bit. It's still a great deal.

Reminded me of my recent addiction to chicken on a grill from a place called "Mean da Chicken".


$4.25 for half a chicken and a whole lot of memories.

I remember small kid time. You remember "huli huli chicken". Everybody had to sell it at least once back in the day. I think it costed $1.50 for a 2" x 3 1/2" ticket that you would redeem months later for a half of a "huli huli chicken". Trip to the neighbor island, money to pay for your team or club, whatever.

Back then we had to pick up our own chicken. If you forgot, tough luck!

Anyway, I remember mom or dad bringing home the chicken in an oily plastic bag tied at the top and placed into a paper bag. That was our plate. Our table mat was a larger paper bag or two from Foodland.

Bust open the bag and dig in! No forks, just fingers. And if you were lucky, had leftover lunch from last night's dinner to help sop up the oils. Yummy!

I don't find that taste in chicken from Koala Moa or Sams Club or Costco. That taste comes from people that cook chicken like the olden days. Split in half and seasoned with only salt and pepper. Cooked over kiawe charcoal and burn the skin little bit please.

I think Mean Da Chicken uses a store bought product but I forgot the name of it. That's alright because I rather go there and just buy it from them.

They are often found in the Safeway Manoa parking lot on the weekends. Not every weekend, but a couple of weekends. I'll find out for sure and post it.

So if you ever want to eat good and tasty huli huli style chicken, you cannot beat "Mean Da Chicken". Take it home, bust open the paper bags and bring out the rice. No forks, just fingers. Ono!
