Loco Moco from L&L. I do wish some place would offer Loco Moco with really first-class beef.

Albert, I recommend two old time family resturants that serve good old fashion "Loco Mocos" , Uptown on School Street, across from MacDonald's and Janes Fountain on Liliha Street next to the original L&L.

L&L used to be owned by a local family. Sold out to Flores who had the brains and guts to make it into what it is today. Food not that great but his expertise in merchandising and promoting...gosh, I wish I had thought of the ideas first.

My lunch today: homemade cheeseburger on white bread w/mayo and ketchup. Iced tea, of course. S aving my stomach for SOB.

Banana yogurt with granola. 'Ono for L&L BBQ chicken after all the L&L talk... At least we get TWO L&Ls now, one close enough to the Times Square subway station that I can stop there on my way home from work...

Had lunch with family at Pagoda Floating Resturant. Surprisingly, the food was great! I especially enjoyed the shrimp and vegetable tempuras w/sauce, baked mahimahi with newberg sauce, garlic chicken, their salad bar and of course their desserts. Haupia cake, chocolate ice cream w/ syrup and peanuts. Iced tea.

(3 out of five winks)

I'm not a burger guy but someone told me to try the teri burger and fries combo at Spot's across from HCC. That was a damn good burger if I must say so.

I tried the Roast Turkey Plate with stuffing at The New Diners in Kalihi.

*****stars! It's not pressed turkey. I am impressed with the serving amount, presentation but most especially their wholesome homestyle cooking. Served on Wed. & Fri. Their resturant is now open too.

Thanks for the report! I heard that they were doing some good food and your opinion seals the deal - I must go try it.

Lunch for us was a trip to Costco which usually means hot dogs but today I just had a slice of the pepperoni pizza and dh had chicken bake - use that pizza dough and left over chicken up - nothing goes to waste.

LOVE See's! Don't have a store here either so if I'm anywhere where they have a See's store I'll stock up. Recently in LV, so stocked up on my favorites. Also, you can get it at the airport there for a last-minute pickup. Going to Portland, OR next month so guess what...stock up again! They do have a website...www.seescandies.com - so you don't have to do without. But it is nice to recieve a care package from home! I'm waiting for my aunt to send me my Coral Tuna and Big Island Cookies.

It's the last day of April. We went to COMPADRES at Ward II. Had a Taco, Enchalada, refried beans and salad plate. Bottomless Ice tea.

Taco bland taste (beef, Taco Bell's tastes better)
Enchalada average
Refried beans excellent
Mexican rice average
guacamole and salsa excellent
Bottomless Iced Tea great but they don't refill ice cubes!

food*** atmosphere***** service*****

My favorite resturant is Han Yang. Instead of going there today, I went into Kiawe Grill next door. I was pleasently surprised. It used to be the old Iva's Hawaiian Foods. Unlike the former, this place has the business and ability to be successful.

ordered their pulehu shortribs*****

you can choose your own side dishes (4)
from an assortment of tofu,kim chee, potaoes,
macaroni salad,cucumber kimchee, etc.

Ate to much...I going moi, moi. not!

Ravioli and Speghettio's...ate with my newly arrived grand daughters. We had a lovely lunch together. Beats all the lunches and dinners put together. Awwww...the joys of having children in the home again!

Oh! My iced tea of course.

McNuggets and small fries.

(Oh well, the kind of lunch you have when you feel a bit hungry and can't make up your mind to eat something more interesting.)

Char siu stew noodle, once again, from Mini Garden in Chinatown. Yinnie, the owner, reports the grand opening of her new S. King location - to include a wider array of vegetarian fare - will be on June 1. Cool!

Only had time for fast food, so went to Taco Bell on this Cinco De Mayo day. In a questionable marketing ploy, they had no specials to celebrate the occasion!

On a related note, one of the island yacht clubs is doing their monthly potluck dinner with a "Spanish" theme. Too bad they didn't go with a "Mexican" theme to celebrate Cinco De Mayo, cuz as far as I know Spain had nothing whatsoever to do with it.
