Hawaii Food Adventure: Day 2

Pin It


Hawaii Food Adventure
2011
Day 2


Of course I'm still on Pacific time and woke up at 4:30 am... Had a couple of meetings to start the day, so I wasn't too disappointed in not getting any sleep.



It's a Beautiful Day!

And to think, I left 100 degree weather to be here.

One of the benefits of having meetings in Hawaii is
getting to run into old friends and colleagues.

At one of my meetings,
I was invited behind the scenes at
Hawaiian Host, the originator of the chocolate
covered macadamia nut candies.

Ward Center

Lunch with @BCDlane


After lunch I head to Ala Moana Center to walk around and to checkout
the new food court at Shirokiya.

I happend to hear my name being called...



Friends from Los Angeles!

Didn't know that they would be in Honolulu...
What a surprise!



Leonard's

They've never been to Leonard's for malasadas...

It was now off to meet up with some HNL foodies... Met up at Sushi ii, small place that had a great price fixe menu and opted to share the 5 course and order sushi.



Beet Salad



Scallops

I don't remember exactly what it was, too interested in
the good conversation.



Sushi of course...



Seared Wagyu Beef and vegetables



Grilled Cheese Sandwich and Tomato Soup
Served with a candied kumquat



Dessert
