monkey pod kitchen

Thank you for all of your kind comments and emails. I really appreciated them. We are taking things one day at a time.

I'm glad that Satoshi was able to come to send off Mom.

While he was here, one of the places we checked out was Monkeypod Kitchen.

I had seen this place when I visited Ko'Olina with my aunties in July and was interested in checking them out.

Also Genki Tummy had recommended this place too.

We shared the organic Kale salad...$10.95

I liked how the salad was lightly dressed with a miso sesame vinaigrette and there was mac nuts, golden raisins and mandarin oranges. I hope to re-create this one.

I ordered the reuben...$13.95

I wished they had added more sauerkraut and roasted brussel sprouts...this was kinda disappointing for me. Also by adding fries for $2 more was even more disappointing as the fries were limp, like they had been sitting out awhile.

Satoshi chose the Seared Ahi Tuna Melt...$19.95

He also added Garlic Truffle Fries for $3...again, the fries were!

Overall, kinda pricey for lunch.

I hear during Happy Hour the food is half-priced...THAT is probably worth checking out.

But as for lunch...meh! Still, I'm glad we were able to check them out.

Glad to see you blogging again Kat!
Oh...I'm sorry that you had a bad experience at Monkeypod Kitchen. I thought that it was a bit pricey, but totally worth it for Happy Hour. Our fries were hot and crispy.

Take care everyone!

Take care you two.
