    Panda Express; steamed rice, chicken & mushrooms, and orange chicken.
    And a fortune cookie.

    Saw I could get a pepperoni pizza from 7-Eleven for about a dollar cheaper than the UH-Manoa Papa John's, but instead opted for a $2 "hamburger curry" bowl from a vending machine.

    Like they say, you get what you pay for.

    Not to mention making me think I am in Holland in the spring, looking at all those pretty flowers.

    By any chance are they open on Saturday?

    Helen wondered about the UHM Papa John's:

    "By any chance are they open on Saturday?"

    I very much doubt it. None of those big-box places are usually open on
    weekends. And Papa John's, even on weekdays, opens much later than
    the other ones.

    (I wouldn't bet any money on it being around for very long.)

    Dumplings and wafers! Yes. Strange combination.

    Indian buffet: tandoori chicken, vegetarian biryani, dal, chicken aloo, cole slaw, washed down with an iced chai tea. Dessert was rice pudding. All for about $8 bucks.

    The "Asian Club" from Willoughby's Restaurant at the Honolulu Airport Hotel (formerly the Holiday Inn). I'm not quite sure what makes it "asian" versus your average club, except for the inclusion of scrambled egg. But it's tasty! And the restaurant is a friendly, quiet, reasonable jewel in the industrial rough of the airport area.

    Tried a hamburger and fries from the new "Cheeseburger Factory" at UH-Manoa. Not bad, but I won't make an entry about it in the Best Burger thread.

    Very friendly staff there, though.

    From where? L&L? Get plenny in Las Vegas, I know.

    Yesterday, I had mochiko chicken, shoyu potatoes, corn and seaweed from Family BBQ, a little Korean plate lunch place at the Airport Trade Center. Nearly everyone in my office goes there now, and at noon, the line goes right out the door!

    Seaweed? Man I thought you was local! Nobody calls it seaweed! You sure it's not Ogo or something more specific?

    Hee! I said I was local, but I didn't claim to be a particularly good local. After all, I can't speak pidgin to save my life, and blasphemy of blasphemies, I don't particularly like mochi, or haupia, or coconut.

    To be honest, I called it "seaweed" because I'm not quite sure whatit is... I just point through the glass at "that green stuff." There are so many variations when it comes to the multitude of sides you can get at a Korean place, I just gesture rather than risk getting it wrong.

    You know I just got thru with a lengthy posting replying to a thread on how Lingle is holding back spending on programs that feed the poor. Well politics aside, I thought of this thread and thought it would be a good idea to present this idea. When you go out and buy your lunch today or whenever, if you notice a homeless person on the way to the deli, order him/her/them a sandwich/$1 McDonald McChicken or whatever.

    Your food no matter how good or bad it is today will taste better and swallow easier knowing that you did something for humanity in a small yet direct way. Don't wait for government intervention to help feed the needy.

    A nice thought, but I think a homeless person could make that $1 go a lot further than the cashier at McDonald's! Besides, give anyone a free burger these days, and you'll likely be looking at an attempted murder charge.

    Yesterday I had a combination teishoku from Kabuki restaurant on Kapiolani, sashimi and teriyaki chicken. Today it was back to Wendy's.
