oahu food guide: part I

i am no foodie by any means.  i am actually a very picky eater according to others….i don’t think i am, but i guess not eating any kind of seafood when you live in hawaii is constituted as being picky.  if anyone reading this is planning a trip to hawaii in the upcoming future, i want to share with you some gems i’ve discovered that are beyond the “waikiki-tourist-central-realm.”  this past weekend we went to Shokudo Japanese restaurant in Honolulu; a really fun, yummy, and affordable place if you like sushi or fish (don’t worry – i got teriyaki chicken).  but if you go, you HAVE to get their famed honey-toast for dessert.  it really is the simplest concept, but it tastes so so good.  thick pieces of bread crusts toasted with butter and smothered in honey + cubes of bread (scooped out of the crust) with honey in the inside + vanilla bean ice cream.  umm…YUM.  and yes, we still did go to Yogurtland after too.  don’t judge.  (our friends that met us for dinner live on the north shore — a land where froyo places do not exist — so we gotta live it up when they come to town.)
.
then on saturday afternoon reis and i went to lunch at my favorite cafe ever: Bogart’s.  everything I have ever gotten on their menu has been delicious but my all time favorite meal is one of their salads — the Avocado Chicken Salad.  it’s kinda pricy at $12 but worth every penny.  their chicken is out of this world and I guess it’s a top secret too because I asked the lady at the register what seasoning they use and she wasn’t allowed to tell me.  fine then.
.
anyways.  if you come to oahu, go to these places.  they will make your tummies very happy.  the end.
