In more ways than one.
The cuz P and I have been talking about trying out this place for a while.
2033 North King Street, Honolulu, Hawaii. Known for their prime rib on the weekends, and fried chicken. To put the place in perspective, it would be an excellent candidate for that show about diners and dives, you know the one.
One reason we took so long in getting here, B was reluctant, I’ll just leave it at that. Another reason is their hours.
The sign is no joke. It’s fo’ real.
So yesterday we finally got the chance AND convinced cuz B to go. We almost had to tie her up (just kidding). “She not local that’s why”.
P & B ordered the prime rib.
I went for the grilled fish and fried chicken combo.
Sorry, senior moment, I forgot what kind of fish.
Portions are huge, notice no “unnecessary” accoutrements, not even a sprig of parsley, not complaining, just an observation.
The prime rib was done well
well done, the fish and chicken too. Chicken was crispy on the outside (almost like cracklins), yet moist and tender on the inside. And yes, I ate the skin. Fish was moist and not overcooked.
I was a little worried that after waiting so long to get here, the reality would not meet our expectations. Won’t speak for the cuzzes, but the food far exceeded my expectations.
So several reasons for my speechlessness. B agreed to go with us, B actually enjoyed her prime rib, the food did not disappoint, and everything, including tax and tip was less than or really close to fifty dollars for all of us.
Must come back for their oxtail stew, looked really ono.
Enjoy. Eat well.
