You walk in and the decor is ridic. There are pictures of famous Hawaiian landmarks that litter the entryway. J stopped by and pointed out the places that were familiar to him from his childhood.
We sat down at the bar--the bartender was super friendly and attentive.
Since J had already eaten dinner, he ordered a drink while I poured over the menu. The menu has some standard Hawaiian dishes. I was starving (3.5 hours of business law will do it to ya) so I ordered spam musubi AND an order of kalua pig.
The food came out quickly and man did it smell amazing. The portions were huge too!
Waiter: "These both for you?"
Waiter: "Seriously? Awesome!"
The spam musubi was pretty tasty. The spam was sliced thin and fried up to perfection. I was so hungry that I forgot to take a picture of the dish! Whoops, I had already eaten two pieces.
The kalua pig is cooked well. It's smokey and super tender. The cabbage could have been cooked a tad bit more, but I tend to like my cabbage overcooked.
The overall experience was great. I managed to get some great food in a relaxed atmosphere. Now if only the weather could mimic that of Hawaii's would I then be in paradise.
