Met up with my friends Val & Greg for lunch the other day.
We went to check out Wolfgang's Steakhouse in the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center.
This restaurant is not Wolfgang Puck's, it is Wolfgang Zweiner's (apparently some people on Yelp thought it was Puck's and were disappointed when it wasn't)...anyway, they've been having this $10 lunch special ever since they opened up 2 years ago.
For US$10 + tax and tip, you can choose a WG burger (1/3 pound burger with lettuce tomato, onion, steak fries & onion rings) or their mahi sandwich or a seafood salad.
Well, I figured since we were going to a steakhouse, I should eat something steak-related, right??...hamburger.
At first, Greg told me, that they told him, they offered 3 kinds of cheeses, one being Gruyere...it turns out that they only have one...cheddar...sigh!
So, cheddar it was...and lest you think that this burger isn't big...take a look at it from another angle...
this one...humongous right??
I ended up eating the innards, some of the fries and all of the rings and leaving the sliced onions and bun because all the juices from the burger made the bun really soggy, mushy even.
Oh and that slice of cheese...ended up costing me an extra US$2!!! I think I could've bought a whole package for that amount...now, if it were for bacon, I may not be ranting...ahem!
Still, the burger was delicious, the company was good and the conversation never ending.
Oh, and if you plan to ride The Bus (I have already a couple of times on this trip home), it is now US$2.50 one way...
Thanks for a great lunch Greg & Val!
