Happy Stomach

Found this place while surfing the net.


Luck Belly (50 North Hotel Street, Honolulu, Hawaii), for your residents, it’s where the old Mini Garden used to be in Chinatown. I was curious about the place because one of their appetizers is Pork Belly Bao. Plus, with a name like Lucky Belly, I had to go and try it.

It’s been open for only about two weeks, they haven’t had their grand opening yet, so their menu is limited. If pork belly is on the menu, I’m good.

Pork Belly Bao

Sake hoisin sauce and pickled ginger.

“All right, Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up.”

To balance out, I also ordered a green salad.

Green Salad

With a ginger ume vinaigrette. All in all, very good (the socks came off). I would have liked a little more pickled ginger in the pork and a little more dressing on the salad though.

Understandably, the restaurant is still feeling its way. The table setting was cloth napkins with disposable chopsticks, priceless.

Cute ya?

Enjoy. Eat well.
