The restaurant was founded by Don Ho’s parents.

Detour

Sometimes, the journey is the adventure.

The Chef’s tasting dinner happened. Tell you about that later.

On the way, there were detours.

Original plan (In The Mouse’s mind anyway), was to work a couple of hours (part-time), get to Kahala Mall, catch a movie (Star Wars), have a light lunch, wait for The Cat for pick up, and dinner at Kahala Resort.

At the last minute, The Cat decides she wants to give Chef this for his b-day. The Cat was attending a seminar and the task becomes a honeydew item. Sigh.

The Mouse had to backtrack to go purchase which kinda “detoured” my plans on catching the movie.

There was still a slim chance of hope of getting to the theater to make the movie time.

Didn’t happen.

Got a little sidetracked walking to the bus stop.

Sign and Food

Sign and Food

Old hotel/restaurant. Mostly for tourist looking for bargains and locals from other islands visiting for school games or reunions. Known for their koi “pond”.

Buffet lunch. A little pricey, but affordable, a little extra dollars in my pocket (no more high tourist-y prices at the church area). Try try.

Food!

Food!

Various poké, not fancy kine, ahi, fried tofu, mussel, and tako, not gourmet, basic poké. Not bad.

Breaded fish, teri chicken, pork and peas.

Honeydew melon, cantaloupe, pies, and cakes (pink only in the SPAM islands) for dessert.

Again, not gourmet, more like upscale home cooking, fairly priced.

The “highpoint” of the detour, server gave me a container of koi food.

A zen experience

A bit of quiet and solitude in the middle of the urban jungle. a five-minute stay-cation.

“I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be.” (Douglas Adams)

The Cat, while having not of big an adventure, still experienced “something”.
