On the Road Again…Texas Roadhouse

Although Texas Roadhouse is a chain restaurant and has many locations all over the United States, I never knew that it even existed. DS took my SO and me out to dinner yesterday at Texas Roadhouse. It was indeed a very good experience. Doors are held open for you when you walk into the restaurant. … Continue »

Agu Ramen at Isenberg

I love noodles…all kinds of noodles. SG and I went to Agu for lunch at 11 am on a Wednesday. Needless to say, the restaurant was not busy. I ordered the miso tonkotsu ($14) and 1/2 an order of gyoza ($3). I was disappointed. The broth was thin, watery and not flavorful. I did not … Continue »

Located on the corner of Piikoi and King at 938 Piikoi Street, Bakery & Table (B&T) is open for business serving pastries and dinner. Dinner reservations are preferred although walk-ins are accepted. Call (808) 592-7777 for reservations. A huge sign states they are open. However, B&T hasn’t had their grand opening yet. KO, GU, ZF, … Continue »


Japanese comfort food…to me that’s the kind of food Gyotaku serves. My SO and I wanted to have an early lunch on Saturday morning. We went to Hinome Mizunone first since I thought they opened at 10:30 a.m. I was wrong. They actually open at 11:00 a.m. so we drove down King Street to Gyotaku. … Continue »

12th Avenue Grill

Ordering the right food is the difference between a good meal or not. I don’t know where my head was today but what I ordered was NOT what I wanted. My SO and I went to 12th Avenue Grill for dinner tonight. 12th Avenue Grill was named the 2015 Hale Aina Restaurant of the Year … Continue »

Happy Hour at Panya Bistro

I love to watch Guy Fieri on Diners, Drive-Inn and Dives. What a gig traveling around the country eating at neat places. That’s my dream job. My blog is my feeble attempt to review restaurants in Hawaii and while traveling. My SO and I went to Panya Bistro at Hokua Tower for Happy Hour (between … Continue »

Tommy Bahama Restaurant and Bar…Waikiki

I really enjoyed eating at the Tommy Bahama restaurant in Maui and was looking forward to eating at their new location in Waikiki. The worst part for locals eating at Tommy Bahama is the parking. Parking in Waikiki can be expensive. Validated self parking ($6) is available at the Bank of Hawaii building in addition … Continue »

Cafe Kaila for Dinner

My SO likes to go out for breakfast. Me not so much. We drove to Cafe Kaila for breakfast a few times but walked away because of the long line of people waiting outside. However, I read in the newspaper that Cafe Kaila is now open for dinner Wednesday through Friday so convinced my SO … Continue »

Bob’s Bar-B-Que

I worked in the airport area and passed Bob’s Bar-B-Que almost daily. However, I’ve never eaten there or had any food from there until today. My SO and I couldn’t decide where to get a bite to eat. He finally decided on Bob’s Bar-B-Que since he wanted to try something different. Bob’s Bar-B-Que is a … Continue »

I love food, bargains, and helping the Culinary Institute so one of my favorite times of the year is Restaurant Week. This year NS and I decided to eat at The Signature Prime Steak and Seafood Restaurant on the 36th floor of the Ala Moana Hotel. Neither of us had ever eaten there. After checking … Continue »
