I first had this soup two years ago on the Big Island at the Volcano Golf club. As the name implies the club is right near the volcano. Geese walk around on the courses.
It's a poky little place with real unpretentious homemade food. Check out the menu. I had this soup and a half a tuna sandwich, potato chips, a pickle and root beer.
Probably the soup tastes better in Hawaii. Everything does.
I found this recipe at www.soupsong.com/rhawaii.html
There's a hilarious story about a Hawaiian, a Portuguese and a Japanese and their lunchtime woes in Hawaii.
