Just came back from a great 6 days vacation in Honolulu, Hawaii. On this trip we found quite a few different places to eat and they were all good & "gotta go back" places! If you like traditional Hawaiian food, then you must go try Helena's, which Adam Rich of "Man vs. Food" did when he was in town.
|Bowl of Poi, Lomi Salmon, Lau lau|
|Fried Butterfish collar, Short ribs Pipikaula style, Kalua pig|
|Terri & me with Craig Katsuyoshi (Helena's grandson)|
|BBQ Pork sticks, Saimin, & mustard sauce|
Another of my favorite things to do is "sight-seeing" at Ala Moana Shopping Center (ok, ok so it's more like shopping, not sight-seeing!). This time we decided to eat lunch at the newly remodeled dining/food area at Shirokiya Dept. store. The variety of food available is enormous! It was really hard to decide what to eat, but here's what we chose:
|Pork Belly Bento Box|
|Red wine for me & Pineapple Tea for Terri|
|Ho Farms Tomato Salad w/Hawaiian Island Goat cheese &|
Vanilla Li Hing Mui Dressing
|"Da Poi Cup"- Hanalei Poi, Kalua pig & Lomi tomato|
|French Fries & Foie Gras Honey Dipping Sauce|
|Hawaii Sweet Gold Pineapple Beignets &|
Vanilla Caramel Sauce
Well, that's what we did for the 1st part of our trip...more to come!
Yours truly, Karen
