Kauai Personal Chef recommendations?

Will be in Kauai with family and wanted to have a personal chef come to the home we are renting in Kapaa. There seem to be a lot of personal chefs on the island, all similarly priced--anyone have good experiences with one in particular? It would be for 7 people.

Mas x Menos Richmond, Va

Stopped in this morning, picked up pupusas revueltas, tacos al pastor, tacos de lengua, and tamale etole. Oh, and a glass of horchata. The tacos de lengua wasnt great(a bit dry) but the al pastor was very good I thought. It is still a Salvadorian place so it wasnt real mexican tacos(which is hard to find in Virginia, period).

The pupusas were fantastic though, some of the better ones I've tasted recently. Cheap too, 1.40 a piece. I am tempted to go back tomorrow and get more. Very nice grilled corn taste, almost smokey. The curtido was good as well. The tamale was sweet and a perfect end to the meal. You can get them fried or warm, we opted for warm.

Everyone there was extremely friendly, and all the food came in under 15.00. We will certainly go back. It's a shame more gringos don't venture to little hole in the walls like this.

Any groceries that carry rabbit meat? Short Pump Whole Foods doesnt have any, unfortunately.

Take Home Oysters in NoVa?

Where does everyone find the best oysters to take home and eat in Northern Virginia? Don't really feel like going out and eating in a restaurant.

Corn Tortillas in Richmond VA (Midlothian?)

I'm looking for some good corn tortillas to use for dinner tonight, can someone recommend a hispanic market or store where I can get some? Something a little tastier than the ones at Ukrops. Any places that make/sell them fresh?
