    Ron talks about foods that she really loves to eat.

     

    Mari: Hi, I’m Mari. I’m here with my friend Ron. Today, we’re talking about food. So Ron, what’s your favorite cuisine?

    Ron: My favorite cuisine has to be Hawaiian food. I grew up eating Hawaiian food so every special occasion we had Hawaiian food, so now when I eat Hawaiian food, it always brings back good memories.

    Mari: What exactly is Hawaiian food?

    Ron: Traditional Hawaiian food is usually cooked under the ground in a hole with hot rocks and it cooks for maybe six hours or seven hours and when you take it out, it’s very salty because we use a lot of salt and it tastes really good … usually meat … usually pork and other vegetables like taro and potato.

    Mari: So then what’s your favorite Hawaiian dish?

    Ron: My favorite Hawaiian dish is called Lao-Lao. It’s pork or fish wrapped in leaves and put inside the underground oven and it’s very salty and very good.

    Mari: So the flavor is just salt?

    Ron: The flavor is salt and also the leaf flavor that it’s wrapped in.

    Mari: What’s your favorite dessert or junk food?

    Ron: My favorite dessert has to be cake and ice-cream together. I love to eat cake and ice-cream together.

    Mari: What’s your favorite ice-cream flavor?

    Ron: My favorite ice-cream flavor is strawberry, and I like to eat that with chocolate cake.

    Mari: Mm, sounds good. Do you like vegetables?

    Ron: Not so much. I don’t like to eat vegetables but I can eat them if somebody cooks them for me.

    Mari: What’s your favorite vegetable?

    Ron: My favorite vegetable … I don’t have a favorite vegetable but I can eat vegetables like asparagus, broccoli, carrots. Those types of things.

    Mari: Do you eat your vegetables raw … like salad … or do you prefer them cooked?

    Ron: I prefer them cooked.

    Mari: Thanks Ron.

    Ron: You’re welcome.
