Sushi on Big Island, HI - near Kona

Hoping to find a good place for sushi while I am on the Big Island. We will be on the west side of the island in Kona, but are willing to drive if need be.

Any suggestions?

Irish Butter

Not sure what is so special about it. Is there any particular use for it above and beyond the regular? I see it in the store and I am not sure what sets it apart.

Peanut Butter

I am shocked that no one has mentioned this wonderful combo - peanut butter and fresh cut apples. I prefer granny smith - but I am sure any would be good.

I hate bananas.... so the PB and banana thing is totally lost on my. yuck!.

Anyone tried Ontaria in Costa Mesa?

I hope I am even spelling the name correct. It's on Bristol just down from the Anti Mall and the Camp towards Newport. Is it any good?

Old fashion cast iron vs. enamel dutch oven

Planning on making a dutch oven purchase. There are the tradional cast iron ovens with no enamel and obviously the higher priced enamel coated versions. Why purchase an enamel over a old fashioned un-coated cast iron? Is there a value in the cooking or just ease of cleaning? Would love all opinions, will help my purchase process....
