Can you believe that I am heading back to Hawaii on MLK weekend? I can’t, in fact my mom didn’t tell us until three weeks ago. If you’ve been to Hawaii, I am sure you can say that there are plenty of special things that Hawaii has. One of those things really stands out to me. It is ………………. of course…………….. the food! Not just any food, restaurant food! Right now, I can think of 50 different cool restaurants to dine at, but these are the ones I am looking forward to the most (I have been to these restaurants before):
Description: A sushi bar with some of the most tasty fishes in the world (not including Caviar!). Including the golden red snapper fish! There is also a really good salmon skin and cloves salad with a Shitake dressing to go along.
2. Waialae country club Sunday morning buffet
Description: A breakfast buffet with a view of the Pacific ocean. The buffet has two buffet tables and everyday, there is usually something new on the second table such as Portuguese sausage or fried rice. Also, there is always an omelet making station, a waffle toppings area along with a fresh waffle maker, and guava and orange juice. In addition to that, there are donuts, fruit, bagels/toast, cream cheese, jam, butter, smoked salmon, pastries, and more!
3. Little Sheep
Description: A choose your own hot pot toppings place. Their specialty is the sauce bar, in which you can make your own dipping sauces. My favorite combo is ponzu sauce, green onions, sesame oil, and sugar. Try it out, I am pretty sure you’ll like it!
Description: A Chinese restaurant with really good fried chicken and warm winter melon soup. Usually you have to wait in line there when it is crowded. I advise you try not to do!
5. Tanaka Tokyo
Description: A man cooks in front of you while performing tricks such as the onion volcano and also doing funny things. You can get shrimp, chicken, or beef as your entree and everyone dining gets the best fried rice along with corn, bean sprouts, mushrooms and some tasty sauce. Just telling, you gotta go there. Seriously!
Description: Just a local favorite of Honolulu. The flavors are really good and the toppings are too! Not to mention the smooth cold ice. You can’t beat a bowl of mango shaved ice with cold condensed milk on a hot sunny day, can you?
These suggestions sure are some of the best, so next time you’re heading to Hawaii, check these suggestions for where to go next!
P.S. My next post will be the first “Ask Nate” monthly post. Make sure to write a question or two about food and I that you want me to answer. You can do this in the comments section. In my next post, I’ll answer your questions. Have fun writing questions!
