It looks like Honoka’a has a new business in the works, and I have to say it’s a little cheesy. Â It’s “The Dutch-Hawaiian Cheesery” to be located in the greenhouse next to to Tex Drive In & Restaurant.
Â “If these are the Sandwich Isles, then the Big Island must be a burger.Â And what a burger!Â It would be loaded with world class grass fed beef or the freshest ocean fish, piled with local-grown lettuce and tomato, evenÂ farm-smoked bacon.Â Thereâ€™s only one thing missing:Â Whereâ€™s the cheese?”Â Â â€” Â business pitch circulated by Malena Kea and Jerry Perkins
Should the “Glass House” become a cheesery and offer recipes “passed down through the family for generations” with milk supplied from a local dairy, Â I couldn’t be more supportive.Â
“We invite you to take a bite of this metaphorical ‘Big Island burger’ and taste for yourself how our cheese makes even the best things better,” wrote Kees and Malena Kea.
Â I’m wondering, are they going to be serving up this cheese at the neighboring Tex Drive In & Restaurant, or is the Dutch-Hawaiian Cheesery going to be serving up some of its own cheeseburgers? Looking forward to hearing more about this business to come. Â Admittedly, the artist’s rendition makes the place look a little yuppie. Â If there’s burgers, they’re going to be gourmet and come with a wine list. In any event,Â I love the logo â€” a surfing cow with a pua behind her ear. Cute. Serve me up some cheese!
