View Full Version : What's for lunch - Chapter 4

April 2nd, 2005, 07:27 PM
Might as well start a new thread for the start of the 2nd quarter of the year (which was yesterday).

Well today was the gathering at Magic Island. Had rice, mac salad, lumpia, kai bi and chicken skewers. Washed down with a few bottles of water and a can of Mountain Dew Code Red which broke a streak being caffeine free for about 3 weeks.

April 3rd, 2005, 03:02 PM
Roast beef sandwich, potato salad and (cheer!) a big Hebrew National Kosher Dill Pickle which Foodland Ala Moana finally got back in stock.

If you want to be reminded of what "sour" really means, that is definitely the way to go.

April 3rd, 2005, 04:54 PM
Was at the Boston Convention Center for the Gift Show today.....so Clam chowdah and a turkey sandwich from Legal Seafoods...

April 3rd, 2005, 04:54 PM

Happy to post my first luncheon addition...then again, most of my lunches I eat at work here are from home anyways. Today its bok choy, and a chicken stew made with some type of nut I can only pronounce in cantonese, all with rice of course.

I'm thinking Sushi for dinner....Mmmmmmmm! :p

Back to a polish sausage and a cup of water from Costco.

April 15th, 2005, 01:07 PM
there's a relatively new place on king street (mountain side) next to the old cinerama theater called D's Cafe. nice people running the shop. they offer sandwiches and daily lunch specials.

the biggest challenge is parking. you could secretly park at checkers for a second or across the street at jack in the box....

April 15th, 2005, 02:32 PM
Had pho at the pho place at River and Nimitz, plus spring rolls. Mmm!

Speaking of sushi for dinner, though, I got to go to Sushi Sasabune last night with the aforementioned wedding party. Goddamn, if that wasn't the best sushi I've ever had in my life!

April 15th, 2005, 02:43 PM

You gotta give the address to that place. I'm heading home to Hawaii in the next month or so and I LOVE sushi. My favorite food of all time! So if it's good, then I'm there! :)

April 15th, 2005, 03:00 PM
Here's a review (http://starbulletin.com/2000/10/19/features/eater.html), with the address (1419 S. King St., just Diamond Head of Keeaumoku). Here's another blurb (http://www.hawaiibusiness.cc/hb62004/default.cfm?articleid=2) on the place. The quintessential experience is to sit at the bar, and to eat only what the chef deigns to make for you. Don't touch that shoyu bottle, and don't you dare try to order a California roll, even at a table, as you will be tossed out.

This guy takes his sushi seriously.

April 15th, 2005, 03:11 PM
Wonderful day. Wonderful breakfast and lunch

Won ton mein and chicken/shrimp summer rolls w/ peanut sauce

Iced tea.

April 16th, 2005, 03:18 PM
Went to my favorite resturant...Han Yang on N. King Street! Had the Seafood soup with tofu, udon noodles and vegetables. Cooked right at the table. (serves four) Also ordered Shortrib Kalbi.

Comes with the usual assorted side dishes.

Mama and I are stuffed. No need eat dinner tonight! :D

Recommendation***** :D

Grilled cheese sandwich and fries at Bob's Big Boy, with a chocolate malted milkshake. Boy, it's hard to find a good malted milkshake these days, but BBB has a good one.

April 16th, 2005, 06:04 PM
Went to Teriyaki Madness - one of my favs in LV. Had the low carb chicken plate. Went back there for dinner too! Ate the chicken yakisoba. Mmmmmmmm :p

April 17th, 2005, 10:04 AM
Harkness at Queen's Medical Center. Surprisingly tasty.

DH and I had lunch there yesterday. Make your own chili frank plate plus the salad bar which is small but has all the most important fixings. Salmon special looked good but wasn't that hungry. Best hospital cafeteria food I've had. Reasonable prices too at under $10 for both including beverages and a bag of chips. Sat next to the salt water aquarium (which is really nice & soothing) and watched the fish eat romaine lettuce.

April 17th, 2005, 01:04 PM
Pork Spareribs w/ long beans sauted in tomato and onions, iced tea.

April 17th, 2005, 02:03 PM
all-you-can-eat sushi from Inaka Sushi. Not that great - but better than NO sushi! :)

April 17th, 2005, 02:51 PM
Ahi poke with shoyu from Foodland. Okay, I know it would have been better if I'd gone to Yama's, but can't use foodstamps there.

April 18th, 2005, 01:00 PM
Spanish Corn Beef Stew and Iced Tea! ;)

April 20th, 2005, 12:20 PM

Dim sum at Golden Palace on N. King Street. Mmm!

April 20th, 2005, 02:22 PM
I was at McDonalds today and somebody ordered a Big Mac without the special sauce! I mean what's a Big Mac with out it's special sauce?

Kinda like Rome without a Pope!

April 20th, 2005, 02:30 PM

Saturday's lunch was steak, mashed potatoes, a little wine, a bottle of Mountain Dew and tiramisu.

April 24th, 2005, 01:55 PM
Loco Moco from L&L. I do wish some place would offer Loco Moco with really first-class beef.

April 24th, 2005, 02:15 PM
Albert, I recommend two old time family resturants that serve good old fashion "Loco Mocos" , Uptown on School Street, across from MacDonald's and Janes Fountain on Liliha Street next to the original L&L.

L&L used to be owned by a local family. Sold out to Flores who had the brains and guts to make it into what it is today. Food not that great but his expertise in merchandising and promoting...gosh, I wish I had thought of the ideas first. :)

My lunch today: homemade cheeseburger on white bread w/mayo and ketchup. Iced tea, of course. S ;) aving my stomach for SOB.

April 24th, 2005, 07:28 PM
I'm in AZ now....no Local food anywhere! Had to eat a chicken sandwhich from McDonalds... yuck. :(

April 25th, 2005, 06:59 AM
Banana yogurt with granola. 'Ono for L&L BBQ chicken after all the L&L talk... At least we get TWO L&Ls now, one close enough to the Times Square subway station that I can stop there on my way home from work... :)

April 25th, 2005, 12:22 PM
Chicken Adobo/Paprika style, can oil sardines w/ shoyu and chile pepper water, Iced tea. Oh, da rice. Neva had chance to pick up some poi. ;)

April 25th, 2005, 02:40 PM
Minute Chicken Cake Noodle (that's minute as in 60 seconds and not minute as in very small).

April 26th, 2005, 02:29 PM
Had lunch with family at Pagoda Floating Resturant. Surprisingly, the food was great! I especially enjoyed the shrimp and vegetable tempuras w/sauce, baked mahimahi with newberg sauce, garlic chicken, their salad bar and of course their desserts. Haupia cake, chocolate ice cream w/ syrup and peanuts. Iced tea. :)

;) ;) ;) (3 out of five winks)

April 26th, 2005, 03:49 PM
Char siu stewed noodle from Mini Garden at 99 Ranch Market in Mapunapuna. I still think they make it better at their Chinatown location.

April 26th, 2005, 07:02 PM
I'm not a burger guy but someone told me to try the teri burger and fries combo at Spot's across from HCC. That was a damn good burger if I must say so.

April 27th, 2005, 03:15 PM
I tried the Roast Turkey Plate with stuffing at The New Diners in Kalihi.

*****stars! It's not pressed turkey. I am impressed with the serving amount, presentation but most especially their wholesome homestyle cooking. Served on Wed. & Fri. Their resturant is now open too.

April 28th, 2005, 01:12 PM
First of all, Happy Birthday AbsoluteChaos! ;) ;)

Today, I got take out from "Leong's Hawaiian Foods" on N. King Street.

Tripe stew, na'au, lomi ahi, kalua pig, chopped steak, and salt beef with watercress soup. My opu is expanding beyond help. I look and accept my physical shape without regrets! ;)


Everybody have a great day. Tomarrow's Aloha Friday. :)

Thanks for the report! I heard that they were doing some good food and your opinion seals the deal - I must go try it.

Lunch for us was a trip to Costco which usually means hot dogs but today I just had a slice of the pepperoni pizza and dh had chicken bake - use that pizza dough and left over chicken up - nothing goes to waste.

April 29th, 2005, 03:09 AM
I just received a box of See's Candies from an ipu who lived in Honolulu..gonna share these sweets with my co-workers today. See's Candies are not available here on the East Coast, so all of my co-workers will sample See's for the first time. Just to let you know, I'm saving the dark chocolate caromarsh for me!

April 29th, 2005, 07:08 AM
LOVE See's! Don't have a store here either so if I'm anywhere where they have a See's store I'll stock up. Recently in LV, so stocked up on my favorites. Also, you can get it at the airport there for a last-minute pickup. Going to Portland, OR next month so guess what...stock up again! :D They do have a website...www.seescandies.com - so you don't have to do without. But it is nice to recieve a care package from home! I'm waiting for my aunt to send me my Coral Tuna and Big Island Cookies. :D

April 29th, 2005, 09:09 AM
I'm waiting for my aunt to send me my Coral Tuna and Big Island Cookies. :D

April 30th, 2005, 04:13 PM
It's the last day of April. We went to COMPADRES at Ward II. Had a Taco, Enchalada, refried beans and salad plate. Bottomless Ice tea.

Taco bland taste (beef, Taco Bell's tastes better)
Enchalada average
Refried beans excellent
Mexican rice average
guacamole and salsa excellent
Bottomless Iced Tea great but they don't refill ice cubes! :confused:

food*** atmosphere***** service*****

May 2nd, 2005, 12:32 PM
My favorite resturant is Han Yang. Instead of going there today, I went into Kiawe Grill next door. I was pleasently surprised. It used to be the old Iva's Hawaiian Foods. Unlike the former, this place has the business and ability to be successful.

ordered their pulehu shortribs*****

you can choose your own side dishes (4)
from an assortment of tofu,kim chee, potaoes,
macaroni salad,cucumber kimchee, etc.

Ate to much...I going moi, moi. not! :p

Aunti Lynn aka Auntie Pupule

May 3rd, 2005, 03:25 PM
Ravioli and Speghettio's...ate with my newly arrived grand daughters. We had a lovely lunch together. Beats all the lunches and dinners put together. Awwww...the joys of having children in the home again! ;)

Oh! My iced tea of course.

May 4th, 2005, 09:36 AM
McNuggets and small fries.

(Oh well, the kind of lunch you have when you feel a bit hungry and can't make up your mind to eat something more interesting.)

May 4th, 2005, 10:03 AM
last night's Chicken Katsu Curry! Made it the first time last night and I must say, it was pretty ONO!

May 4th, 2005, 12:02 PM

May 4th, 2005, 09:47 PM
Char siu stew noodle, once again, from Mini Garden in Chinatown. Yinnie, the owner, reports the grand opening of her new S. King location - to include a wider array of vegetarian fare - will be on June 1. Cool!

May 5th, 2005, 11:43 AM
Only had time for fast food, so went to Taco Bell on this Cinco De Mayo day. In a questionable marketing ploy, they had no specials to celebrate the occasion!
On a related note, one of the island yacht clubs is doing their monthly potluck dinner with a "Spanish" theme. Too bad they didn't go with a "Mexican" theme to celebrate Cinco De Mayo, cuz as far as I know Spain had nothing whatsoever to do with it.

May 5th, 2005, 12:01 PM
A couple of combo pizza slices and a cup of water from Costco.

May 5th, 2005, 01:44 PM
A dijon turkey and bacon sandwich from Subway, toasted. I tell you, considering that you can get your sandwich toasted for no additional cost, I'd be very worried if I was Quizno's. Just about as tasty, and it doesn't cost you $10 just to have a sandwich combo for lunch!

May 5th, 2005, 08:54 PM
bacon mushroom philly cheese steak from the recently-opened Ono Cheese steaks on Bishop...closest thing to the real thing in town, and under five bucks! Ono indeed!

poi cocktail :)
May 5th, 2005, 11:30 PM
oh man, cheesesteaks just the way I like um! or did till the doc said watch the cholesterol (low 200's) :( everything I like is the no no list: butter, cheese, red meat, etc. so I try but not really, at least gave up fast food mostly.

usual day is nice cup of coffee (and a smoke or 3! bad boy here sorry), that's breakfast. start work and forget about eating till starving, then make breakfast for lunch :p oats kind cereal and toss some blueberry or raspberry on top with cold soy milk (lactose intolerant). or frozen waffle, maple syrup, scramble eggs, crispy bacon! yeah bacon! :thumbup but only 1x or 2x week.

nobody cook for me so I cook what I like. or starve :) must try to eat better, more veggies, fish. ooh, time for one poi cocktail, my comfort food. yah all those carbs before sleep. work it off tomorrow. hey it's a friday. all good!

goodnight :wave

Mango chutney with turkey on 7 grain bread, grilled. I brought my little jar of chutney from the Punahou Carnival all the way to NYC for school - makes me appreciate local food all the more!

May 10th, 2005, 08:15 PM
Since the arrival of my grandchildren from Colorado, the only time I had a chance with MAMA to dine at a resturant like we "normally" do...was Mother's Day and that was with our OHANA. Ohhhh, the days of eating out.

I made beef ampatada (beef, tomato suace, green, red/green bell peppers, tomato simmered all together than I add frozen green peas) onolicious! :D

May 12th, 2005, 11:28 AM

Upon coming home and checking the threads, I had to smile when I saw this one up again...it is my favorite one.

I had a late lunch today...a bottle of whatchamacallit by IV in my right arm. :eek:

It's late. I'll see you all tomarrow. Life is short, smile and make someone happy every chance you get..........................

Love and Aloha
