Another errand means another chance to try a new place for lunch...we recently tried Kahai Street Kitchen.
You should know that my mom has this list of places she wants to try, my dad is not a foodie, so he isn't interested in eating out, so every time I come home, we try to knock off as many places from her list as possible.
This shop is located in a busy industrial area and the bad part is that they have no parking.
So, while my mom jumped out to order, I circled many many times.
We got a side order of sweet potato fries...a little limp by the time we got home, but very flavorful.
The boneless short ribs were very tasty, though some pieces had lots of gristle.
Cooked to medium rare, this was quite tender. The meat was marinated in a teriyaki sauce.
The garlic chicken was very moist and tasty.
The sauce was shoyu based, not a lot of garlic flavor, but it was still very flavorful.
All in all nice sized portions for the three of us and delicious...we also appreciated only 1 scoop of rice per plate (usually when there are 2 scoops, like most plate lunches serve, we end up having leftover rice).
We'll be back.
