Steak sandwich, sauteed onions/mushrooms, small green salad, iced tea at Assagio's. Best of all, I was treated by a friend.

Boneless chicken (I suspect it was lemon chicken), brown rice, mixed veggies, mac salad from the (recently opened) HCC Cafeteria and a bottle of Diet Pepsi (Mountain Dew was sold out) from the vending machine.

Phở at Skippy's on Queen Emma... next door to Da Kine Bail Bonds. My friend is a regular, so we chatted a bit with the owner, Lannie Nguyen. She was making spring rolls as we talked. Good food. The place got a nice write up in the Star-Bulletin.

Some kind of pork chop with steamed veggies and brown rice, plus a bottle of water, from the HCC cafeteria (thanks for lunch, Helen!). I know it's a student-run thing, but man. The veggies were limp and kind of cold (and had obviously been frozen), and the rice was a bit on the hard side (I know some people like brown rice that way, and I'm fine with it, so no biggie), but the pork chop was quite good. The company made it a good lunch.

Your welcome! I had a tuna sandwich and a couple bottles of water due to I just came from a dentist appointment earlier in the morning and the area around my nose was numb at the time.

Let us know when you are ready for dessert, Pomai. But not too soon --- you have to complete your bittersweet meal, before you can move to the next course. There will be plenty waiting for you, though.

The wife and baby and I joined our very own glossyp for lunch at La Pizza Rina on S. King St., a couple of doors down from Sushi Sasabune. Decent Italian food is famously hard to find in Hawaii, but La Pizza Rina's pretty darn good.

We shared antipasto, ravioli, a 12" cold sub, a medium pizza... the Italian dressing in the antipasto and sub was great (for a very reasonable $6.75), the marinara sauce was wonderful (not overpowering), and the pizza was great (the cheese was perfect, though it was not "New York style"). I used to not be an antipasto fan (especially after a disastrous turn at Castagnola's in Hawaii Kai), but it was my favorite dish there.
