O Bar at the Alohilani Resort

The O Bar is located at the renovated Alohilani Resort at the former site of the Pacific Beach Hotel Oceanarium Restaurant. I have fond memories of that place because my husband proposed to me there.

On the Road Again…Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Syracuse, NY

I love barbecue and have been fortunate to eat it all over the United States. I also read Yelp and Trip Advisors to decide where to eat when I’m traveling. That being said, you can’t always determine if the reviews are your taste because opinions and experiences differ. I chose Dinosaur Bar-B-Que after reading the … Continue »

On the Road Again…Fat Boys in Louisiana, MO

I think of fried catfish and pork tenderloin when I think of Midwest food. That being said, when I’m in Missouri I’ve got to find a restaurant that serves the best catfish and tenderloin. Missouri tenderloin is pounded thin, breaded and then deep fat fried. It’s not the healthiest thing to eat but I do … Continue »

On the Road Again…Mom and Pop’s Donuts and Diner in Louisiana, MO

One of my favorite television shows to watch is Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. How cool is it to drive around then country and try different foods.

The Edge by Tamura’s-Closed 11/2017

The Edge by Tamura’s in Kaimuki was a must try for me. Reasonable prices and good food. I called (808) 732-3340 to make reservations for the Ladies at 5:45 on a weekday. We parked at the municipal parking lot behind the restaurant (25 cents for 20 minutes). I ordered the Kataifi Scallops ($15) and the … Continue »

Yauatcha…Upscale Dim Sum @ IMP- Closed

Let me preface this review by saying I grew up eating dim sum in Hawaii and in San Francisco, New York, and Hong Kong. I was quite excited when I heard that Yauatcha was opening at the International Market Place and looked forward to eating there. My SO and I walked to the restaurant and … Continue »

Ko at the Fairmont Kea Lani Hotel Redux

It was our anniversary and my SO and I decided to dine at Ko to celebrate. We made reservations using open table for 5 pm. In retrospect, it probably would have been better if we made it later as it was quite warm. Ko is open air so the temperature can be warm. We arrived … Continue »
