Surprised that the HCC Cafeteria had pizza and small salad for just over $5 today. Had that and a bottle of Diet Coke (with Lime I think).

P.K. and I ate Thai Food. We told the owner to cook us her Special two dishes. One was Seafood and the other a Noodle dish with Pork and vegetables. The food arrived and she smiled. We were hungry!

Aiyah! The Seafood dish was HOT!!! I told her to make it mild but she forgot. She apologized. I didn't want it to go to waste so I ate ALL.

With a lot of WATER!!!

Arrow Re: What's for Lunch - Chapter 11



After Mass today, we ventured into Waikiki to check out "MAC 24/7." The "MAC" stands for "modern American cuisine," and the place is aiming for a bizarre combination of modern trendy nightspot and retro comfort food diner. It's in the Hilton Waikiki Prince Kuhio Hotel (former Trellises spot in the former Radisson Waikiki at 2500 Kuhio Ave.).

Their signature is their ginormous "mac daddy" pancakes. The Advertiser described them as being the size of "area rugs," and they're not kidding. At least 18 inches across. Various combos include basic blueberry, the "Elvis" (peanut butter and bacon), and the banana, pecan and chocolate (which is what we ordered). A quarter of this monster fed both my wife and I. The rest is weighing down the shelf in our fridge.

I gather that they're going for quantity rather than quality, as the pancakes weren't exactly fluffy, and without butter, pretty dry without a massive syrup pour. Turns out the most popular dish on our table was my youngest son's simple bacon, eggs and toast!

Breakfast is a big part of the menu (and I like any place I can get breakfast at 3 p.m.), with other dishes like meatloaf, lobster pot pie, fried chicken and waffles, baked goods, soups, and salads. The saimin bowl? Big enough for a small child to swim in. Of course, it's also a nightspot, so there's a long shiny bar for the beautiful people.

Valet parking is free (just tip well), though we ended up leaving at 11 a.m. That's checkout time at the hotel, and the valet was a madhouse!

Oh, that chicken adobo looks yummy. Is it a little on the red side? Did you put something tomatoey in there?

My lunch (which I just had) was a Lean Pocket, half a bag of mini Fudge Stripes, and two cans of Diet Coke. Vending machine food.

That seems to be what everyone says after ordering pancakes there. Were the toppings any good?

Would you order pancakes there again?

I used Stew Chicken today. For faster cooking, use Chicken Thighs.

Cover with Water.
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1 cup shoyu
Paprika as much as you like for redness.
2-3 crushed ginger
2-3 crushed cloves garlic
2-3 whole Bay Leaves
1/2 sliced round onion
whole peppers, lil' bit salt and msg (opional)

Combine all ingredients and Chicken into pot.
Boil till liquid comes thick.

Enjoy.

Once again: Play around with dee Recipe to make it your own!

Oooh. Thanks for the recipe. I actually have a recipe and it's pretty close to yours, but I use a 2 to 1 ratio of vinegar to shoyu (I really, really, really like vinegar), and I've never used paprika. Think I'll try that.

When you say "whole peppers," you mean peppercorns, right?

Oh, also: The first time I watched someone make it, I was having a little...fling. With a Filipino girl from the mainland. She was on exchange at UH-Hilo. She and two of our friends used to come over every Monday night for Monday Night Football and dinner, and we took turns handling the dinner.

Anyway, she told me this: When you get it all simmering, you MUST leave it alone. Don't stir, don't bang the pot with something, don't move the ingredients at all, or else the whole thing will be spoiled. She couldn't explain it, except to say that that's what her mom always said. I demanded some kind of reason, so she said something about agitating the chemicals before they were done doing their thing (which is something we all learned in chemistry classes during certain labs).

Have you ever heard this, about stirring RUINING the adobo?

To both questions.

Yes! Especially, the part of not stirring the POT!

You've heard Alton Brown say it sometimes, Scrivener - just listen to his voice in your head, saying "walk away --- just...walk away."

Or would you rather hear Ms. Ray's voice in your head?

Yes, there's a lot of this recently. Seattle presents live music in different downtown locations throughout July & August, so we go to several of them. Again, today.
