You Learn Something New Every Day

I did not know any of this about a common dish that you find in Hawaii,
yet I've never seen it anywhere else:
Saimin
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saimin
this is so interesting me, maybe not to many others but ...

What interesting fact have you found?

You said "mixed plate" means "leftovers" on the islands, K-girl. I did not know that! We ordered mixed plate at restaurants, hoping it wasn't just their leftovers! It was all good though.

Well, dawg, "Mixed Plate" isn't necessarily leftovers, but a mish-mash of whatever, different things, in a restaurant anyways. At home, yeah, you'd just throw together whatever you had in the `fridge and call it "Mixed Plate" ... a little of this, a little of that, some steamed white rice and you're good to go!
