Hawaii Spam Edition
Hanabi and the little lady ended up hitting up Hawaii, Oahu, The North Shore more specifically. What a great idea that was. We decided to keep it all beach, all the time. That decision was highlighted by the fact that we couldn’t be bothered to show up for our reservation at Morimoto’s in Waikiki. Not for lack of trying though. Their site says they close at 10, but when your last seating is at 9, then you actually close at 9. Aside from that Haleiwa is great little town not far from the beautiful Waimea bay where we had the most amazing whole roasted crab in curry off the back of a Thai food truck. The curry was spiced perfectly and the crab was cooked perfectly. That and a couple of beers and we were set for the night. If you’re in the area you must visit Ted’s Bakery and Wailua Bakery Let’s just say Loco Moco is the breakfast of choice, that is until you’ve had it and then you need to go with an Acai bowl the next day because you can only do Loco Moco once. You also are required to drink all the drinks on offer at Turtle Bay Resort and it’s beachside bars.
Hanabi also explored Bell and Whete for some pork shank. Also he rocked a Scotch Ale called Error! Hyperlink reference not valid. from Aylesbury. Insane Dane was out on the town at the Madison Square Park Eats event. I’m pretty sure I’d have ditched it and went to Shake Shake.
