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"

808 Tapas, Las Vegas NV 9350 West Sahara Ave #150 LV, NV

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!!

Tacos El Gordos Las Vegas, NV

After living in LA for 8+ years you learn allot about Mexican food, and I started to crave a good Taco here in Las Vegas, so I searched and found my go to late night spot! Tacos El Gordo, located in a little strip mall right on the Strip its open late on weekends so perfect for the after Drinking spot. I recommend the Beef Tounge its the BOMB!!

 

Torafuku Japanese restaurant west la

In west la it's hard to find Japanese food that is up to par with japan, in places like torrance it's easy.
I always feel it's a good sign when i walk into a Japanese restaurant and 80% of everyone in there is speaking japanese.
Torafuku has the quality and attention to detail that you would expect from a Japanese restaurant.
After the first meal I know I will be a regular here, with super moist tonkatsu, perfectly cooked shrimp tempurat, and some awesome rice you can't go wrong.
