    not really disappearing (for long) but the foodland at ala moana is undergoing some serious renovations and when it opens, it'll have a coffee beans & tea leaves and a beard papas shop....

    Condolences to the entire ohana of Mrs. Chock. She did what she loved to do for over 60 years and left her duties in peace.

    Thankfully the ohana will continue Helena's in honor of her. Hopefully her spirit will live within them and they'll have the same inspiration and passion she had in serving authentic Hawaiian food. After all, they know all her techniques!

    I need to pay a visit there soon when they re-open.

    A few fast food restaurants look to be razed in the next few days:

    Taco Bell on King Street/Keeaumoku they have a bulldozer in place and were already tearing up the parking lot. Then a few blocks down on Keeaumoku Street the long time McDonalds is set to be torn down soon...but will re-open sometime in the winter of 2007. McDonalds seems to do this to other older restaurants after so many years they did this with the Beretania location recently as well as the Moilili location a few years back. Also the Liliha Street 2 story is not that old either.

    We ate at Jackie's Kitchen the 2nd month they opened for business. The food wasn't that bad but nothing special, the prices a bit high, but what I didn't like was the wait help. They hovered around our table and asked 'how is everything?' every 2 minutes! It was impossible to enjoy the meal and talk. Do it to me once and never again will I patronize your restaurant.
