Student’s Culinary Creation to be Sold at 7-Eleven Hawai’i
* Updated August 1, 1:43 PM
The winning dish will be available beginning Aug. 3, for a minimum of four weeks. Eri Abe’s savory stew and fellow student Jeongyeon Shim’s tteokbokki, spicy rice cake stir-fry, were the co-first-place winners of a 7-Eleven Hawai‘i competition in December 2020.
- Shim’s tteokbokki, spicy rice cake stir-fry, was featured at 7-Eleven Hawai‘i locations earlier this summer.
- Both Abe and Shim graduated from Kapi‘olani CC in the spring.
The contest for Kapi‘olani CC and Leeward CC culinary students was to create a better-for-you bento or entrée.
Wafu ‘ulu stew will sell for $5.99 at O‘ahu stores and $6.99 at stores on other islands.
