Posting various photos of food — good food, mostly — from August. It was quite a busy month, so I haven't really caught up until now.
Pork chops, Ray's Cafe (take out)
Possibly the best chops on planet Earth
Always trust experienced hands when it comes
to making fresh ahi poke
Waianae Store, the only place I know that makes
your ahi poke to order, custom made
I waited in line at Faith's, aka Tasty Freeze, but it
took forever, so I left. The guy before me waited almost
20 minutes for a single burger, time I just didn't have.
Spam bowl at Leilehua.
Saimin and high school football just go together,
whether it's at Aloha Stadium or old Honolulu Stadium.
Kalua pig and cabbage at Moanalua.
One of my Top 3 favorites: the salt & pepper
(and chili pepper and garlic) fried chicken wings
from Golden Duck.
Mabo tofu and noodles at Ezogiku (Moiliili)
The beef curry at Ezogiku (Moiliili) has really,
really improved lately. I hadn't tried it in years,
but I wandered in one night and saw another
patron having it. It just smelled different. It's much
more on that Japanese, sweet-but-still-spicy
Combo hamburger curry/chili plate at Kaiser.
I refuse to eat canned chili, but this is awesome
homemade. Recipe is by Kaiser AD Rodney Iwasaki,
who used to make this at Roosevelt games when
he was the AD there. Can't go wrong for only $6.
Shave ice at Waipahu football game
I got the melona flavor shave ice at Waipahu. Thumbs up!
