That means “the best” in Hawaiian….can be an overused expression as everyone has their opinion as to what is “the best” of everything…

You’ve all heard about “the best” this or “the best” that when it comes to food products…but this really is “No Ka Oi” … that’s “The Best” in Hawaiian….The flavor of Teriyaki is a way of life in Hawai’i andI think it is the most prominent taste in local foods….I’ve always made my own teriyaki sauce for marinades, dipping sauces, etc. but recently bought Trader Joe’s Soyaki Sauce and marinade and tried it for the first time tonight on rib pork chops marinated in the sauce and then pan fried.  I served it as a local Hawaiian favorite plate lunch♠ (yes I know it was dinner but the style is called “plate lunch) served with macaroni salad (another local Hawaiian staple) and of course two scoop rice (short grain rice scooped/served using an ice cream scoop).

Run, don’t walk, to your nearest Trader Joe’s and buy a bottle of their fantastic Soyaki Sauce – try it on fresh salmon fillets, your favorite cut of steak and grill or pan fry.
