Crispy on the outside, moist on the inside with textural crunch, the taro burger at Village Burger Waimea is a must try even though beef is the name of the game here. The patty of Waipio Valley taro, leeks, zucchini and carrots, bound together with potato flour, is topped with lomi tomatoes, green onion and avocado, sandwiched in a focaccia bun. This is how Edwin Goto satisfies vegans, carnivores and locavores alike.
