A note about serious food allergies

Other than leis, fish, and former Presidents whose name rhymes with O'Llama, Hawaii is most famous for the combo of pork and pineapple. (Many times in SPAM form!) These tacos have all that, plus a creamy cilantro sauce and crunchy red bell pepper. Maybe not all that… let us be clear, no former Presidents will be shipped in the meal kit box to you.
