Cafe 100 Revisited

Tuesday, December 13th, 2005

Why oh why do I keep doing this to myself? Why do I keep coming back here for a bland loco moco in hopes of it one day being better? Well, I can get an “ok” loco moco and a small chili for well under 4 bucks… the chili was pretty good actually, not bland [...]

Kandi’s Drive Inn

Saturday, December 10th, 2005

It was another weekend night, and we were hungry at 4:30am. Ken’s, Verna’s, 7-11, or…Kandi’s? Yup, Kandi’s opens at 4am! That was good news because I’ve come here many a time between 8-9am and their fried rice breakfasts were usually sold out. Not happening to me this morning. *grin* Kandi’s serves all the traditional local [...]

Koa Pancake House

in Aiea, Oahu I used to come here more often in the past, but have stopped going for a while… until I sampled a bite of their loco moco, I had to come back for further investigation! Koa Pancake House has 3 locations I know of (Aiea, Waipahu and Kaneohe). They look like they are [...]

So it’s 4am in rainy Hilo, you’re partied out, and you got major munchies. Where to go? “Ken’s!”, you may say. Others say, “Verna’s!” I lived in Hilo all this time and only recently, with the guidance of some friends (I’m a sheltered boy), did I realize that Verna’s is open 24 hours on weekend [...]

Restaurant Osaka

Tuesday, October 18th, 2005

You’ll find everything from Bul Go Ki to Tonkatsu Domburi…to Loco Mocos at Restaurant Osaka. I find myself coming here at least once a month for their homestyle cooking and maybe a beer or two from the lounge. Osaka’s has two rooms: a lounge and a restaurant. Both rooms serve the same food, but one [...]
