Mauna Kea Mist, the Newest Instagram Hotspot

The next hotspot for viral Instagram pics has to be Mauna Kea Mist inside of the Shirokiya Village Walk, Ala Moana. What’s all the fuss about? It starts with the frozen colorful balls that’s like cereal, not ice. Then you pop one in your mouth and watch the mists of Mauna Kea arise. The fun […]

Must Eat at Ramen Bario

$7 for parking in the Waikiki Shopping Plaza. I don’t care. Cash only. I don’t care. All the other eateries in Waikiki Yokocho. I don’t care (well not yet anyways). Our server mixed up one of our dishes. I don’t care. Kinda pricey. I don’t care. All I care about is that ramen broth, specifically […]

Dew Crazy

On my last day in Japan, I saw a vending machine that sold Mountain Dew. This was the first appearance of Dew that I came across after two weeks traveling the cities of Nippon. This was surely a sign of what was to come. Back in Hawaii while stopping by a Walmart, I went a […]

My Japan Education: Samurai Gourmet

To get a sense of the Japanese cuisine, its preparation, its underlying meaning, and its flavor, you must watch the Netflix series, Samurai Gourmet. While some of the storylines are hokey, you can’t deny the attention to detail and focus placed on the featured food dishes. The closeups and the sounds of cooking fill the […]

“East Side” Girl Scout Smores Cookies

Alright, a Girl Scout troop in Hawaii needs to find a way to bring in the other Smores cookies. Sourced from two different bakeries, there are differences in Girl Scout cookies throughout America as described by the L.A. Times. Personally, I think these chocolate-covered graham cracker cookies are way better than the sandwich version sold by Hawaii-based Girl […]

Kozo Is Not Genki

For the sushi uninitiated, Kozo is not Genki and hence doesn’t have the issue with Hepatitis A-tainted bay scallops. For good measure, Kozo tells you so.

Costco Calories

Never really noticed this in the past, but have ever tried to eat healthy at the Costco food court? While you can’t beat the cost of the hot dog/soda combo, it can’t be that good for your body. Pizza, sandwiches, sundaes – all no so healthy.  Of course, the Caesar salad is the answer. Nothing […]

Black Sugar Manapua from Libby

Never Seen a Black Sugar Manapua?!?

This took me completely by surprise. Today, as I was walking around the office while eating a black sugar manapua, I had two coworkers stop me and ask what that was. They only knew of the regular pork-filled manapua aka char siu bao and had never seen the black sugar variety. What’s so surprising is […]

Next Stop…

Sorry Zippys, but in Washington DC, my next stop is Shake Shack. Tried their burgers, fries, a shake, a concrete, and a cold brew…oh and picked up a shirt too. Not bad, not bad at all. Crowded but the turnover was brisk. The bacon cheeseburger was a little gooey for me. I wasn’t a fan […]

“Impietence” Defined

By now, you know of the goodness from the Hawaiian Pie Company. Fresh or frozen, their creations do not disappoint. But… If you get a frozen pie, you have to keep in mind the preparation time. That is, the oven preheat to 400 degrees. Then the actual baking for one hour (or more) until golden […]
