A relative’s.



Newly opened, re-opened, or re-re-opened. Through a series of unfortunate events, the location has changed several times. Old location for one of the Sizzler Restaurants.

Layout kinda looks the same inside too. Buffet tables (covered up), booth seating, etc. Was in the neighborhood (gassin’ The Cat’s car up), thought I’d check it out (relative and all that).

On to the food.

Side Salad

Side Salad

You don’t see these types of salads too often anymore. Iceburg lettuce, cucumber slices, tomato wedge, Italian dressing (or French, or Thousand Island). Hee hee.

Roast Pork with Gravy

Roast Pork with Gravy

Includes rice and overcooked mixed vegetables. How authentic is that? Think Colombia Inn or Flamingo Restaurant (both gone), or Nighthawks painting, or The Sting movie. You get the idea.

Not gourmet by any stretch of the imagination, but considering the location (not disparaging the location or the clientele at all, but sometimes, you want boots on the ground comfort food. Pork was well-cooked (fork tender), coulda used a little more gravy though (especially on the rice). And if I The Mouse could be so bold, some mushrooms in the gravy (even canned). Just to add a little oomph. Rice and gravy, a local tradition. 🙂

Rice and gravy. Tell you about small-kid time hanabata days at the Nu‘uanu YMCA another time.

Good to see the relative is back in business, good luck to him.

Enjoy. Eat well.
