The good thing about hanging out with cousins P&B, we eat. The not so good thing about hanging out with cousins P&B, we eat … a lot. 🙂

Although these dishes were eaten over a two day period, I still feel a little piggish (as in kalua piggish, oink oink). 🙂

It’s very unusual when I get to introduce two eating places to the cuzzes. Weird, I live on the island, they are part-timers and they’ve eaten at more places than I have … jealous (just kidding).


The first place, Uahi Island Grill (131 Hekili Street, Kailua, Hawai’i) was on P’s radar for a while. Just never had the opportunity. I’m happy I could provide the opportunity. 🙂

Hmm. Looks like either through technical difficulties or operator error, I seem to have lost this days pictures. 😦

In summary, P liked the place, B, not so much. She wasn’t getting a good vibe, or wrong feng shui.

I think B had malasadas on the brain since we ended up at Agnes Portuguese Bake Shop (46 Hoolai Street, Kailua, Hawaii) for dessert.

Because The Cat was not able to join us, they bought her a cornbread muffin with blueberries. And a container of blueberries from Whole Foods.


Lunch at L&R Drive Inn (45-582 Kamehameha Highway, Kaneohe, Hawai’i), was more of a risky choice on my part. If B wasn’t impressed with Uahi Island Grill, L&R Drive Inn is one of those places that should be featured on “Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives”, it kind of has elements of all three. Hee hee.

During weekdays, the place is packed with guys in fluorescent green t-shirts (construction and road crews) ordering lunch, often a good sign in my book. But B being B, I was a little worried.

But lo and behold, she felt better about this place than the other place, go figure.

B liked both her fried rice and spicy eggplant with ground pork. I’m jaw dropping speechless. The Mouse did good today.

The Mouse’s order. So far, I’m always happy eating from here. Good food, good prices. Both P & B thought this was a new find for them (meaning they would return).


Always fun eating laughing and throwing BS with these two.

The Cat, and The Mouse will be meeting with them (along with Auntie M) for lunch tomorrow too. It’s The Cat’s happy week. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
