the alley

IMG_7868 One day for lunch Satoshi and I went to The Alley inside of Aiea Bowl.

He wanted to eat their Garlic Shrimp, which he's had before.

Even though it was kinda hot out, I ordered their oxtail soup.

The oxtail is cooked for two days.

The broth is rich and the meat on the oxtail is fall off the bone tender.

The bones have nice gelatinous cartilage on them that I like to knaw off.

IMG_7869 It is super filling, but I think instead of rice and instead of their ramen noodles, they should let you order a bowl of rice noodles, you know like the kind that is served with phở.

That would make this even more awesome....

I had to ask Satoshi to help me finish my bowl, but I'll definitely be back.

Hi Kat! We looove the lemon crunch cake there, also the pork chops with gravy and roast pork with gravy (on special's board only) are good. The tasty chicken used to be good, but lately has been lacking in the crispiness department. We would love to eat there more often, but it's kind of expensive! Next time you come home you should try Fortyniner's restaurant in Aiea for their oxtail! It's really good too! Mich :)
