Hilo grindz

Just a quick 24-hour stay in Hilo as I worked an assignment. Just enough time to get some breakfast near Suisan (by Hilo Bay), some dinner at Ken's House of Pancakes, and late night pupus from Suisan.

Poke fried rice with tossed salad

Jerry Campany, my fellow sportswriter,
had the island burger

Suisan has all kinds of poke

Plenty of old memories stopping here to eat after
covering and playing basketball games East side.

Had the grilled teri chicken for the first time since
the 1990s. Still awesome.

Jerry had the #33 omelette

Suisan's ahi poke and aku poke. Gotta have the poi!

No utensils or bowls in the hotel room, 
so I make do.

First time seeing this big bottle. 
Jerry picked this up for $5. Lots of hoppy taste, 
good with spicy food
