odds & ends

IMG_7563 Some odds and ends that never made it to a regular posts...papaya (Thanks Aunty!)

IMG_7565 Ba-Le's lumpia. I don't care for their iceberg lettuce, so I just bought the lumpia and put it on top of my own salad, drizzling the nuoc cham as dressing..so good!

IMG_7594 1st time trying Chicken Assagio at Assagio's. This was on an outing with BFF, Wen. The dish was so flavorful with the capers, olives and roasted red bell peppers! (Thanks Wen!)

IMG_7623 Palama Market's kimbap...still $3.50 plus tax but the rolls seem to be getting a little "skinnier".

IMG_7650 Tanioka's bento (teri beef & mochiko chicken) and a bag of their boiled peanuts...yum!

IMG_7653 Nanding's pan de coco (filled with coconut), lup cheong roll and chicken empanada. It was my first time trying the pan de coco and empanada...love them both!

IMG_7663 Homemade fried rice with some char siu and portuguese sausage....mmm!

IMG_7666 Chinese chicken salad...love this salad!

IMG_7668 Zippy's small chili rice.

IMG_7677 Waialua Soda Works' Root Beer.

IMG_7688 Chun Wah Kam's char siu buns. This version's meat to bun ratio beats their manapua (char siu bao), hands down.

IMG_7690 Cold Brew Coffees...when Hurricane Iselle was approaching, I made up a batch of cold brewed coffees. Decaf for my brother and Regular for me...I figured if we didn't have electricity, we'd at least still have coffee for a couple of days...

IMG_7701 Tanioka's poke salad. It's actually just a salad that comes with 1/4 pound of your choice of poke for $6.95 plus tax. Not bad and the salad is huge!

So, some usual suspects as well as some new trys at old favorites...what have you been enjoying?
