Always looking for a way to get my Mexican fix whenever I come back to Hawaii, I heard about Verde in Kaimuki.
Apparently they opened earlier this year and were recently featured on a foodie segment on the news.
I ordered the nachos which comes with tortilla chips, jack-cheddar cheese, pinto beans and pico de gallo...$7.75
I also added some guacamole ($1) and the steak and barbacoa ($1)
The meat was so moist and tender and I was pleased that there were actual "chunks" of meat.
I also chose their corn medley salsa which was corn, some red chile & chipotle. (I think chipotle is trending these days)
From the photo, it may look skimpy but it was very filling. Everything was fresh and delicious.
I also enjoyed their free lemon & lime water (which is on the counter), refreshing!
They open really early in the mornings and serve breakfast & lunch/dinner all day.
I'll be back.
