Rich Table

Rich Table

My Hong Kong trip post is taking a long time to put together. So many pictures. So much food. In the meantime, here is something to remind you that I’m still here. August? Last post? Really? Too long. Rich Table. Took over spot from the long running Paul K which I never felt inclined to...
State Bird Provisions

State Bird Provisions

I must admit when I first heard about State Bird Provisions and its “dim sum style” dining I was more than a bit skeptical. However, I kept it in the back of my mind. And I’m glad I did! Anna booked a month in advance and we were able to get a 7:30pm reservation on...
Honolulu Trip Report (2/29-3/4)

Honolulu Trip Report (2/29-3/4)

I had a chance for a quick getaway with the family to Honolulu, HI from 2/29 to 3/4. Fly in, eat some new grub and fly back out. Ok, there was more to it than that. It was Anna’s grandma’s 90th birthday celebration and everyone who is anyone was flying back for it! During my...
Ramen Underground

Ramen Underground

A few co-workers wanted to hit ramen for lunch but I was a bit busy with a few things at work so declined. However, I was curious where they were going given there are no decent ramen places near work. So I asked. And when they said, “Ramen Underground”, I was in. It’s located along...
PPQ Dungeness Island - Happy New Year!

PPQ Dungeness Island – Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Everyone! I’ve been dying for dungeness crab ever since the local crab season started back at the end of November. The opportunity presented itself NYE so took full advantage of it. I hadn’t been to PPQ forever so was excited to try it again. Parking in this neighborhood is a nightmare so...
Kare-Ken (Japanese Curry House)

Kare-Ken (Japanese Curry House)

I had drinks tonight at 620 Jones and decided to stop by to try Kare-Ken. No one was there when I arrived a little after 9pm. What to order? I struck up a conversation with one of the owners (who was very nice) and he suggested one of the katsu curries or maybe the dry...
Ethel's Grill

Ethel’s Grill

Alright I’m a little behind in writing my posts. I should have a few more recipes to post soon (I’ve been testing a number of Chinese recipes) but in the meantime, here’s something to look forward to the next time you head to Honolulu. This is from our late September Honolulu trip so not the...
Guu Garlic

Guu Garlic

On our recent October trip to Vancouver, we had a free night go out for dinner. I’ve been wanting to try Kingyo Izakaya for a long while so we headed over to Denman. Unfortunately, we got to the restaurant and it was packed. The wait was well over a hour and although my parents were...
Dean's Drive Inn

Dean’s Drive Inn

Another beautiful hot day in Honolulu and we were headed to a mall? In Kaneohe? It didn’t seem right with the beach and ocean all around us. But it had a train…for kids. So off we headed to the Windward Mall. The only good thing was we’d be very close to a plate lunch place...
FATTY'S Chinese Kitchen

FATTY’S Chinese Kitchen

I’m finally getting around to blogging about my late September trip to Hawaii which was awesome. First off, every day we were there it was 86F with one day almost hitting 90F. Sunny. Blue water. Beach. Humid. Hot. Real Hot. Loved it. And so did the family. We got in around noon which is perfect...
