Good eats in Hawaii Part II
May 22, 2017
Day 2 finds us back at Aloha Mixed Plate for breakfast. I had the same waiter from the previous dinner. The restaurant does have a breakfast menu with tranditional items with the some Hawaiian flair to it. I had the Big Kahuna omelet. Inside the omelet: portuguese sausage, spam, kalua pork, mushrooms, onions, green onions, tomatoes. It was tasty. No salt needed because of the portuguese sausage and spam. Yes, breakfast even comes with two scoops of rice. I’m Chinese so I can eat rice three times a day if I wanted to. I also had a glass of POG (Passion, Orange, Guava juice). Love, love this juice.
For lunch, I had headed to Leoda’s Kitchen and Pie Shop. The restaurant is known for its savory and sweet pies and also have sandwiches, salads, hoagies and hot dogs.
I had the roast pork hoagie: Hapa hoagie, roast pork, ham drippings, garlic sautéed bok choy, provolone. I did see some green specks in my cheese. I liked there was a lot of cheese in the hoagie and meat. The hoagie was just the right size.
The main event of course were the pies. We ordered two pies: apple crumb and macnut choclate. You would think the choclate was more sweet, but the crumb on top of the apple was pretty sweet. My favorite was the macnut chcolate pie. I didn’t realize there was a very thin crust because it was more like a chocolate cream pie, but the crust was good.
Dinner was at Leilani’s On The Beach. The restaurant has this chef’s tasting menu for $26 from 5:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Comes with a pupus, entree and dessert. I opted from ordering form the pre fixe. Instead I ordered the prime rib rubbed with Hawaiian salt. I normally hate horseradish, but this one was mixed with some sour cream, which I liked.
My parents and brother ordered from the tasting menu. Dessert included either an apple banana bread pudding or sorbet. The bread pudding was sweet. It was a chocolate bread pudding. The sorbet came with three different flavors. One of them was lychee flavored. Very good.
