Aunty M treated dinner last night at one of her favorite locations, Kincaid’s (1050 Ala Moana Boulevard, Honolulu, Hawai’i). She likes the steamed clams there.

Must apologize for the dark pictures. Have to upgrade the camera phone soon.

Reason is related to Mouse’s noodle day.

The Cat ordered Furikake Ahi.

New Year’s Eve Seoul Food

New year’s eve, neither of us wanted heavy duty partying, looking for comfort food. Upon the recommendation of a Korean banker, we ended up here.

Sign

Hard to find. Faces a parking lot, can’t be seen from the street. Here’s the address: 512 Piikoi Street, Honolulu Hawai’i. So authentic, the owner is cleaning turnips outside the kitchen (which by the way was near the entrance).

Ordered two dishes. First a combo.

Comes with mixed rice.

First restaurant where mixed rice is standard, white rice upon request.

Also ordered the stone pot mixed rice.

BiBimBap

Rice, Mixed

By far, one of the best BiBimBap dishes. The rice crisped up perfectly without getting burnt. Ingredients were fresh and tasty (didn’t use too much hot bean paste).

Definitely on the list of restaurants to return to. We want to try their kalbi and fish jun.

A solid four paws. :)

Enjoy. Eat well.

often go astray.

The Cat wanted to try two dishes at Sunflower Cafe, fish air bladder and crab meat soup and la ro fan (cured meat rice). Typically Chinese food at Chinese restaurants is best when more people are involved. It’s sometimes a little difficult with just the two of us.

The plan was to meet up with the cuzzes P & B later this week but the schedule got modified. Sigh!

So, yesterday, after much deliberation, we went ourselves. We could always take home leftovers. The cured meat rice takes about 20 minutes so we called to order before we left home.

Fish Air Bladder and Crabmeat Soup

The Cat priced this soup at a couple of places and this was the most reasonable. Believe me, it taste better than it sounds.

Preserved Meat Rice

Cured duck and pork belly (salted and slightly dried) and Chinese sausage, steamed on top of the rice. The fat and flavor seeping into the rice. Yum! The rice slightly crisped and burnt at the bottom of the pot. More yum!

All Gone!

All Gone!

A picture is worth a thousand words. Actually, we took a little more than one portion home, but The Cat did her best to scrape the crispy bits from the bottom. Almost succeeded. Hee hee.

And of course, we had to have a little vegetable.

Chinese Broccoli

To justify the rice and cured meats. :)

I added an order of egg tarts at the end to cap a great meal (socks off).

Since these were from the morning dim sum batch, they were cool. The Cat seemed to mind more than me.

Enjoy. Eat well.

In more ways than one.

The cuz P and I have been talking about trying out this place for a while.

Sign

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.

Hours of Operation

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.

Prime Rib Plate

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.

Quickies

No. Not that kind of quickies. Food kind. Hee hee.

Sorry, not too exciting today.

Had to go to The Cat’s office this morning, rushing to catch the bus back home. Picked this up on the fly.

Roast Duck Buns

Roast Duck Buns

Chinese-style sliders. Steamed mantou, hoisin sauce, roast duck (including skin), and green onions (aka spring onions or scallions).

Not bad, okay. mantou was a little thick for my liking, and the skin wasn’t crispy. But given the fact that this was prepacked, it was okay. Plus it was relatively cheap.

Tin

Herring Fillets

Herring Fillets

Afternoon  snack. Picked up  from Wal-Mart. Taste was a little spicy, I guess from the paprika. Fillets were huge, twice the size of sardines. I might pick more of this later. Little more expensive than the cheapo tins of sardines I usually pick up but still affordable.

Quickies for today.

Enjoy. Eat well.
