This game is simple: name the business these logos represent...

2. Sam Choy's
3. Top Ramen

1 & 2 are correct. Those were too easy.

For #3, you got the type of business correct, but the name is wrong.

Forgot to add, this would be a good time to discuss the logo designs. Likes, dislikes, suggestions, etc..

Boston's "Jolly Pizza Pirate" kinda' resembles the Pillsbury Dough Boy. lol That red moustache looks like it's intended to resemble pizza sauce smeared above his mouth.

I have the logo set for round 2 waiting, but won't post it until someone correctly answers what logo #3 is in round 1.

If you have logos to contribute to the game, please do!

The Jolly Pizza Pirate is a drawing of 1970's effeminate comic/actor Dom Deluise playing a French pirate.
The Sam Choy's crab looks kind of angry and ready for a karate kid kick move.
Any mo' hints on the third logo?

Pomai
July 27th, 2008, 09:22 PM
Any mo' hints on the third logo?The place used to be located in an old strip mall adjacent to Ala Moana Shopping Center that was leveled to make way for Nordstrom. They're now relocated at another space adjacent to Ala Moana Shopping Center.

Unfitting their name, they're known for having a great Chicken Katsu Curry Rice.

Leashlaws, you're good! I thought nobody was gonna get Kaka'ako Kitchen's logo without more hints. That's the most non-descriptive design of the bunch.

Kimo, you're correct on 2 & 3!...

The Hungry Lion design is quite obvious and as descriptive as it gets.

I was gonna' erase the hearts in the I Love Country Cafe logo to make it more challenging, which I should have. That made it too obvious.

Kane-Lehua, that's a good guess! The Shack's logo is just their name in stylized text that resembles wood planks.

Taiyo Ramen! Thanks for the clue, Pomai. I would have never guessed otherwise.
That restaurant was in a row of businesses that included Bakery Kapiolani, Ambercrombie for Congress, and used to have a L&L,Chicken Alice, and a buffet restaurant that I can't remember the name even before Taiyo Ramen. What time did that restaurant stay open till? It seems like it was a place for bar patrons, strippers, or bar girls from the Keeaumoku area go when they felt a bit peckish.

Before your hints this logo has been bothering me ALL DAY! While driving around town (nowhere near the place) it popped into my head! I can now
safely say it's the WILLOWS. I've enjoyed many meals there and can't believe it didn't hit me before. You know how you know something and can't place it and it drives you nuts - this logo! :eek::)

Pomai

You know how you know something and can't place it and it drives you nuts - this logo! :eek::)Exactly.

Their logo while being suggestive of what they're all about, with the what looks vaguely like water (their freshwater ponds) and flora (the "palm" leaves), hardly resembles what a Willow Tree looks like...

http://www.tastyisland.net/images/logogameanswers3.jpg

The Willows logo would fit just as well for a resort hotel.

For #1, the Japanese Kanji characters over the fish spell out GYOTAKU in two parts: GYO (fish) TAKU (rubbing) - 魚 拓

Azteca and China Big Boy is not it.

Hint for #1 & #2: Both are mom & pops. #1 is a neighborhood convenience market located in Kalihi Kai that goes WAY back, while #2 is a relatively new ethnic restaurant located on S. Beretania Street.

Especially for the price!

BTW, "logo" means "word," or "talk" in Greek.

I teach my marketing students at HPU that logos are usually the company's name, presented graphically. Longs, for instance, has no separate graphic element.

Many companies have a graphic, but the company name is often part of it. As this quiz illustrates, the graphic element is usually not enough for people to recognize the brand.

You listed all three sushi establishments correctly!...

I'm biased towards Kozo because I grew up eating there, at the Kaneohe location. The most disappointing Kozo I've been to was the one in Pearl City Shopping Center, where they had the lunch boxes pre-made. That's a no-no! The Moili'ili location across the old stadium is the bomb. Always top quality and fresh-tasting, with everything always made-to-order. If your sushi isn't made-to-order, and is pre-made, don't accept it.

According to this article by Erika Engle (http://starbulletin.com/2008/07/31/business/engle.html), the Kapiolani Coffee Shop's City Square location has closed and they're looking for a new location, while in its place will be a Vietnamese Pho restaurant. Also moving into City Square will be a Chuck E. Cheese, replacing the larger space where Grocery Outlet once was. That's a weird place for a Chuck E. Cheese. I suppose Kalihi/Kapalama area residents will be their primary customers.

The reason I know Don Quijote’s logo is because I go there so often (I remember when they first opened and were selling that plush penguin ... they were all over the place).

As for Yummy’s Korean BBQ, I especially remember that logo because of an article about that Tiger, which is actually Hodori (http://en.beijing2008.cn/spirit/symbols/mascots/n214068225.shtml), the mascot of the 1988 Olympics in Seoul. The owner of Yummy’s, Peter Kim, who was a place kicker for Paul “Bear” Bryant’s Alabama Crimson Tide, is very loyal to his roots. Besides using the Seoul Olympics mascot as a logo for his Korean restaurant (after all, he was born in Korea, but raised in Hawaii), he also named one of his many restaurants “Bear’s” (which, sadly, no longer exists) after his legendary coach, Bear Bryant (http://the.honoluluadvertiser.com/article/2006/Aug/27/sp/FP608270365.html). Very inspirational article.

What's also interesting to read about Robert's Hawaii, is that prior to Greyhound leaving the islands' business scene, their Rabbit logo on their buses were depicted in a running form, similar to Greyhound's running dog, intentionally designed to mock them, with the real-life tested theory that in a race, the rabbit always beat the dog.

I think 1 and 2 are candies, but not sure which ones - # 2 = Hawaiian Host?You are absolutely correct on all counts, including one more.

#2 is indeed Hawaiian Host (http://www.hawaiianhost.com/)!

Kane-lehua, you also got #1, which is Menehune Mac (http://www.menehunemac.com/Scripts/default.asp)! He actually talks (in Flash) on their website.

With that, you can see what's in common here. All you gotta' do is figure out what the brand name is for #3.

#3 - Island PrincessYou got it! (http://www.islandprincesshawaii.com/)

Have you ever noticed how many brands of Chocolate-covered Macadamia Nuts have joined the competition in recent years?

There's Hawaiian Sun, Ed & Dons, Mauna Loa (now owned by Hershey's), plus the three brands featured in this logo hunt. Take that and multiply it by all the different TYPES of macadamia nut-related products (caramacs, garlic onion this, dark chocolate that), and you have just massive amounts of sales floor space in the various supermarkets and department stores dedicated just to these tourism-driven products. It's mind-boggling!

Hints:
• #1 is near Aloha Stadium on Moanalua Road.
• #2's name (in part) is its street address
• #3's name (in part) is also the name of a city on one of our islands

Personally never been there, so asking, how is Aiea Manapua & Snacks' Manapua (and food in general), anyway? Comparable to Libby (slacking lately on the Charsiu), Char Hung Sut and/or Chun Wah Kam?

I dunno. I drove over there just one time several years ago because I was curious about their pizza manapua that was all the rage back then, only to find they had just sold out. I was so disappointed I just turned around, left, and never went back.

i knew it was aiea manapua, darn it!

anyway, it's owned by a guy that used to work for long's (or so it used to be in 2000) who is not the original owner. the dim sum is just passable. even 7eleven's is better. anyway that's how i remember it.

#1) Taro Brand Poi

I'm bummed I'm faltering on the other two! Must be the Pinot Gris of the
afternoon!:p

Oh SLAP ME!!!!!!!! # 3.) Hanalei Poi. This is should have gotten right away. Here's why. Our beloved Maggie was a nut for poi
especially Hanalei. She ate it throughout her short time with us (all brands). At the end we were splurging exclusively on
Hanalei for her due to cancer spreading and her Cushing's disease relentlessly taking over her body as well. So I bought
a plastic tub of it for what would be the last time - who knew? Anyway she came to the point where saying "Aloha baby"
was the only humane thing to do for her and it was so hard. Our dear vet came to the house and we all cried as she went
to sleep forever. So between absolute grief and despair and loneliness I saw her tub of poi in the fridge and lo and behold
the "best by date" or whatever it says on their containers read 9/28/04 which is the day she left us.............I have a little
shelf in her favorite room with her ashes, toys, t-shirts and so on and also that plastic tub from the poi.......My littlest
pit bull/basenbull poi dog gone but certainly never forgotten........

Roger that on #1, which is indeed Taro Brand Poi. You're good!

Very touching story about your beloved Maggie, but must inform you that #3 is not Hanalei Poi (Kauai).

The location of #3 is near a mall on east Oahu. ;)

All currently located on the grounds of Ala Moana Shopping Center, the new "restaurant row".

Right on Paul!

What was the name of the Chinese restaurant that O Lounge now occupies? I couldn't find it searching around. Also, was it good? All I remember is frequenting the Radio Shack, which was located next door in the neighboring office buildling.

That was China House. It was a very large restaurant. We went there a lot. Very representative of traditional old-style Hawaii Chinese restaurants, not very memorable, but not bad either.
