Going bananas at Hawaiian Pie Co.
Banana pie is August’s pie of the month at Hawaiian Pie Co., where the pies will be available beginning tomorrow.

If you’re among the hundreds who fell in love with Hawaiian Pie Co.’s POG pie, the July pie of the month, you’d better get there today for the last of your fill, before it makes way for August’s special.
Working their way through the compendium of local fruit, the Hori clan settled on a wonderful 3-pound, deep-dish buttery banana pie that will be available through Aug. 31.
While picking up the last of the POG pies today, you’ll also spot Grandpa Yasu’s grab-and-go pastele pans ($3.50). If that’s hard to imagine, think baked manapua with a pastele filling of pork, olives and spices. Yummers, and perfect for a quick lunch.
Hawaiian Pie Co. is at 508 Waiakamilo Road. Call (808) 988-7828.
