hawaii re-connects

One thing good about having a blog is that you have a quick reference through your archives...We recently re-visited The Alley in Aiea and bought some items for lunch.

I should have checked my archives, so that we wouldn't have ordered similar items...

alley3 The Tasty Chicken plate...chicken fried crispy then coated with a sweet chili and garlic sauce...spicy and delicious.

alley The Suppa (super) Garlic Shrimp...shrimp cooked in lots of butter and garlic! yum.

It looks like a little but we actually received 9 pieces of shrimp.

Dad said the chicken was "tastier" than the shrimp.

alley2 And for dessert, a slice of their signature lemon crunch cake to share...the cake is very moist, and the outside coating is like a brittle...delicious!

It was nice to re-connect with this place and to know that their quality hasn't faltered.

Glad you were still able to enjoy their food, a year later. ;-)

That's the way it goes. We usually tend to order similar types of things as these are the things we enjoy. The Tasty Chicken plate looks awesome and is definitely something that I would order.

I like the name...The Suppa! Now I have to look if there's a national shrimp day or something.

I finally tried the cake for the first time a few weeks ago when someone brought it to a birthday gathering. Yum! I would go there just for another piece of cake. ;-)
