Five Things You Didn’t Know about Vincent McCarthy

Vincent McCarthy is the Executive Chef at Merriman’s Waimea, which happens to be the flagship restaurant of Chef Peter Merriman. As a result, it should come as no surprise to learn that the restaurant has an outstanding reputation, as shown by its slew of awards and accolades.

Here are five things that you may or may not have known about Vincent McCarthy:

Believer in Farm-to-Table

McCarthy is a supporter of the farm-to-table philosophy. Like its name suggests, the farm-to-table philosophy emphasizes serving local food as opposed to food brought in from places that are further out. There are a number of potential benefits to the farm-to-table philosophy, with common examples ranging from fresher food to a strengthening of the local economy that can come with subtle but nonetheless important consequences in the long run.

Loves Pizza

Like a lot of people, McCarthy loves pizza. However, his favorite pizza can seem a bit unorthodox to some people. In part, this is because his favorite pizza is made using a combination of local toppings as well as house-smoked meats. However, it should also be noted that his favorite pizza includes taro flour, which is interesting in that it contributes to a crispier crust on the bottom that manages to retain a fair amount of chewiness on the top. As for those who are curious where this pizza can be found, the answer is Longboard Legends in a town called Kailua-Kona on Hawaii Island itself.

Recommends the Waimea Midweek Farmers Market for Street Food

Interestingly, McCarthy has stated that there is less street food that can be found in Kailua-Kona than most people would expect. However, for those who are curious, he has recommended the street food that can be found at Waimea Midweek Farmers Market, which offers plenty of options by being varied in nature. This is perhaps unsurprising, seeing as how street food vendors are common at farmers markets.

Has Described Fierce Competition in Asian Cuisine

It is perhaps unsurprising to learn that Hawaii has a lot of competition when it comes to restaurants serving up the cuisines of various Asian countries, with Thai and Japanese being famous examples. However, it is interesting to note that McCarthy’s personal favorite happens to be a place called Krua Thai, which he claims serves up fresh, mouth-watering food made with more restraint when it comes to sauces and sugars than some of its counterparts in the region.

Has Described Loco Moco as an Example of Iconic Hawaiian Food

McCarthy has mentioned the loco moco as an example of iconic Hawaiian food. For those who are curious, it is white rice topped by a hamburger patty and a fried egg while swimming in brown gravy. However, that is just the standard loco moco, seeing as how other varieties can contain a remarkable range of meats. Some examples include bacon, ham, mahi-mahi, oysters, and shrimp. However, it should be noted that there are even more options out there just waiting to be discovered by those who are interested.
