    Re: Disappearing establishments

    I actually shed a tear when they took the ANDY'S DRIVE IN sign down! I remember late nights, sneekin' out checkin' out the old cars on Sunday nights...huuuh, those where the days!

      The plate lunch spot was JJ Diner. I hope they reopen soon.

        Regal Diner is located on the Ewa end of the McCully Shopping Center. Eh tutusue, remember Gino? He was the one who turned me on to Regal Diner a few years back. Although the place is kind of small, the food there is very tasty with generous portions served.

            We ate their grilled pork chops ($1.00) during our college days for a midnight snack.

              No kidding!?!! I gotta go check this out. I didn’t even hear about it (was it just the Bulletin that covered it?)

                Ever since they moved from their original hole in the wall to the larger crevice in the wall, their saimin never seemed to taste as good. Maybe it was those old wooden seats and the fact that you had to wait outside on the sidewalk until one of the few booths opened up that made their saimin taste so ono.
                Life is what you make of it...so please read the instructions carefully.

                  Forty-Niner's in Aiea will close after lunch on Monday Oct. 30. I heard a rumor that the people who run the cafe at the Bishop Museum have purchased the recipe for Forty-Niner's famous saimin and hamburger. I don't know if they're taking over the building or just buying the recipes.

                    I saw that when I went to Genki's last week. Is that the site of the new Super Safeway?

                        This is just rumor so far, but inside sources have hinted the former Jack-in-the-Box property in Waikiki on the corner of Kalakaua and McCully (just across 7-11) may be the new home to a 400+ seat ROY's Restaurant, rebuilt from the ground, up.

                        Also, in today's news...

                          Landmark Chinese spot, McCully Chop Sui, will close at the end of the year. I can't believe Kyo-ya is closing.

                            Yep, I'm going to miss Kyo-ya. The best was the mother's day all you can eat buffet. My favorite was the miso butterfish. Luckily, they published the recipie on tv once and I've been there only once since.

                            As for Roy's opening up a huge Waikiki restaurant, it'll be in the new Waikiki Beachwalk.

                              by the way, went to Kyo Ya tonight for the miso butterfish. The waiter told me they close at the end of March but they expect to be booked for the entire month so don't wait if you want to go one last time.

                              I'll miss this place.

                                If it’s true, that would be great news! Good for him. I thought Yamaguchi was concentrating his expansion on the neighbor islands and the mainland.
