Aloha, the Hawaiian Word of the Day is Mea Ono Puaa. Today's word is actually two smaller words: mea`ono meaning something sweet and pua`a meaning pork. When put together, these words mean the Chinese introduction of dim sum, particularly steamed or baked buns filled with steamed pork, locally we call these dim sum manapua, which is a shortened adaption of mea`ono pua`a or sweetened pork in a bun.
