hawaii reconnects

DSC01762 I hadn't been to Arancino on Beachwalk since pre-blog (2005)! (maybe even pre-Japan (2001)?!)

I met up with Val and Greg the other day for lunch and it was nice to catch up with them.

My lunch started out with their garden salad. Loved the fresh papaya and tangy vinaigrette.

DSC01763 Their spaghetti con polpette (spaghetti & meatballs) was kinda disappointing though.

The meatballs were...hard! I would have thought they would be more moist because the menu said they are made with a mixture of pork and beef.

And the noodles were kinda mushy.

Still, I'm glad they are still in business and it was great to visit with some old friends.

I'd definitely go back to try other things on their menu.

Nice to hear you are having a great time with your family and friends and eating good food~~~! Several of my friends have been going to Hawaii (one going next week) and I'm so jealous of them. :D Wish my home is in Hawaii. Haha.
