Hawaii Food Adventure
After a wonderful evening at the Hawai'i Food and Wine Festival, not sure if I can top Day 4, but we'll see... Still on Pacific Daylight Time, I got up early and was hungry.
Breakfast of Champions!
Poke from Alicia's Market
A favorite place of mine for poke...
After breakfast, I wanted to go somewhere before meeting up with my auntie and uncle for lunch. So I headed to Ko Olina to see Aulani, the new Disney resort, since I'm still a shareholder...
It was early Sunday morning, so didn't take too long to get out to Ko Olina, just had to remember to stay within the speed limit.

The parking shouldn't have surprised me...
Self Parking: $10 for the 1st hour
and $5 for every hour after that.
If you spend $35 or more, then
your parking is FREE
Behind the lobby of the resort
The character breakfast is behind the waterfall
The interior reminded me of the
Grand Californian Hotel
Nice grounds tho...
White building on the left is the
JW Marriott Ihilani Resort and Spa at Ko Olina
I think I prefer that resort over this one
one of the best beaches on the island
Still don't think Mickey remembers me
from working at the Disney studios...
Hawaiian Host end cap
in the Gift Shop
Not sure why Disney doesn't sell the Lilo and Stitch Hawaiian Host box
or the Hawaii Mickey and Minnie Hawaiian Host box
that I worked on?

Now it's time to head back to town and pick up my auntie and uncle for lunch. We headed to a family favorite restaurant on King Street.
California roll, karate chicken, tempura,
salad, and soup
Gyutaku is a family favorite for good Japanese food. They don't try to be fancy or fusion, just old skool and the kind I remember growing up.

Some last minute business came up, so ended up getting work done and there went the afternoon. Didn't feel like going out, so headed for Rainbow Drive In on Kapahulu Avenue. I realized that today was their 50th Anniversary!
Wondered what I ordered?
BBQ beef, piece of fried fish, chicken,
two scoops of rice, and mac salad.
They've been doing this for 50 years and still tastes the same
when I was coming here growing up
3308 Kanaina Avenue
Honolulu, HI 96815
Before heading back, had to make one more stop
Those who know me,
it took 4 days for me to stop at Zippy's.
Usually it's one of my first stops...
Day 5 was a good day, saw my family and it couldn't have gotten any better...
