>tfw hungry but the only snacks in the house are pita bread and hummus
I just ordered a fat ass double loaded pizza from Dominos
>where you just remove 3/4ths of a word
Almost sounds like /ck/ has been taken over by Hawaiians.
Lau lau. Not sweet.
It's usually pork, with ti leaves and a chunk of butterfish wrapped up and steamed until falling apart tender and delicious.
You can get chicken long rice in a bento at any 7/11 in Hawaii.
>we're coming through for you!
i always go for the pork hash and manapua
mainland 7/11s a shit
I haven't heard that term in twenty years. My mom used to make that when I was a kid, but I had forgotten about it. You just blew my mind, hoss.
I miss manapua so bad.
I used to drive home from my high school gf's house at night, who lived on the other side of the island, and would always pick up a bento and manapua from 7/11.

The same thing happened to me just a month ago when someone here posted squid luau and I realized I'd completely forgotten about it, and probably never even knew what it was.
What prancing poofter decided to use an Italian word as an American name for Asian starch-based clear noodles?
FURTHERMORE "long rice" appears to be a Hawaiian term for a dish made with noodles that are not made from rice starch, but rather beans or tubers.
There's no justice in the world. I trust you can learn to cope.
Not him, but you have to admit it's a dumb name. It's like calling bread "fat wheat." Plus long grain is also a real thing.
I actually have been reading "long rice" as "long grain rice" until this thread. Interesting to think how many things I must have misinterpreted over the years.
Don't even try to understand Hawaiian vernacular.
It's the result of almost a dozen different cultures coming together as plantation workers all at once on an already inhabited island chain, and then pretty much getting conquered and incorporated into the United States, who've used it as both a tourist destination and military base.
