Agu Ramen Bistro

One of many ramen shops that have popped up in Hawaii, winning one of the best ramen spots in Honolulu. Today I didn't come for the ramen I came here to because I had a craving for some food karaage and gyoza. The karaage has Just the right amount of crust and crispyness that reminds me of Japan,  if you have tried both you should.

Piggy Smalls

Located in the Ward warehouse, Piggy Smalls is one of the hot trendy restaurants popping up in Honolulu. The menu is constantly changing always based around a common theme of Vietnamese fusion cuisine. Today I tried the Pho-strami burger, with a small Pho on the side!   This shit was great!! I highly recommend it if they have it on their menu! 

They also have a sister restaurant downtown "Pig and Lady"

El Mariachi #2 Aiea

For some reasons Hawaii has a lack of Mexican food. For me this place hits the spot, located right off the Aiea cutoff it's a bit hidden across Aiea Times. I had to fill that Mexican food void that I have been missing since my days of living in California! 

The best part is that they allow you to bring your own beer!!  or tequila!!

Herbs & Rye Las Vegas

Sick food great steaks and bad ass grinds for the late night craving. Bistecca is one of my favorites, you got steak, arugula, truffle oil on a bread. Great for the late night drunk that would be me, they do have a whole menu of other great food and mixology type drinks but this is all I can think of right now. Come by and find me here at some random time.

Everyone that knows me understands that I have to look and seek out good Hawaiian or Hawaii like food, so after hearing about 808 Tapas by Dean Okada, (another Pearl City Boy) I had to check it out and what I found was awesome with traditional Hawaii dishes mixed in with a Spanish flare we experienced a great new place. We had rolls, stir fried pork belly, sashimi Lobster, etc..., but one dish that stood out was the Tensai Hamachi shooter, it was killerz I could have just ate that with some sushi rice. The service was awesome some of the best I have had in Vegas!!! Mahalos to Dean and the crew for taking care of us!!!! You gotta check this place out!!
