The last time my brother and I were in Hawaii together was maybe 3 years ago?!
My brother has been in town for the last week and it has been "eat everything on his crave list" plus stuff my mom wants him to try.
One place in particular was Kanpai Bar & Grill. We tried this place last year and loved the food.
My dad didn't get to try it when we went last year, so we were glad he came with us this time.
This time around we ordered the kalbi shortribs, caesar salad, spicy garlic chicken and fried rice (with 2 eggs).
The kalbi was a little too salty for me, but had a lot of flavor.
I also like the wedge-style caesar salad...the garlicky dressing was nice too.
The spicy garlic chicken and fried rice was just as I remembered it...delicious!
After lunch, mom wanted some dessert, so we hunted out some Ono Pops at Marukai Ward.
They have some unique flavors.
I tried the Dark Chocolate w/Chinese 5-spice--70% chocolate and 5-spice...tasted like an adult version Fudgesicle.
My brother chose the Kona Latte--it was like a nicely sweetened coffee drink.
Mom and Dad chose the Kula Strawberry with Maui Goat Cheese---tart and refreshing.
It was a great lunch and even though my brother's visit was short, I hope he enjoyed his visit home, it was nice seeing him.
