Eat, Kiss, Chocolate, and Sake

Hey Grub Clubbers and food finders at large! How was your Presidents’ Day Weekend? Hopefully, it was filled with food, fun, and family and friends?

Anyway, if you missed out a chance on any of that not to worry. This week is shaping out to be another food-fun-filled week! So you already know that Eat the Street will be back on Friday, but be prepared for crowds.

Not into crowds and eating on the street? Well, I recently discovered Kissaten, which is a nice 24-Hour Coffee Shop, which I think some late night people would rather keep to this place hidden for themselves. Oddly, enough it is right near Ala Moana Mall.

Love chocolate? Well, this Saturday (2/26) is the Hawaii Chocolate Festival, spotlighting Hawaiian grown cacao and happening at the shops at Dole Cannery from noon to 5 p.m. Tickets in advance are for $20 and can be bought online, with door tickets at $25. Check it out this link for more info.

Finally, if chocolate is not your thing, and you want to go for some sake, the Sake Shop is having a tasting this Saturday as well. Join them as they sample some rare seasonal sake that is only produced once a year in the Spring.  In particular, two Namazake, one Nama Nigori and one Junmai Daiginjo. One of these sake from Kamikokoro is very unique being brewed from White Peach Yeast.

It’s great to be in Hawaii again, and keep checking back here for more food and HGC info.

Eat the Street is Back!

 

Thanks to Nonstop Honolulu for bringing me this news. The food truck rally is returning this Feb. 25. Are you ready to eat the street, again?

Check out the information here at Nonstop Honolulu. Mari, as always is awesome.

In other news, Honolulu Magazine has a great focus piece on the man who started Ba-Le and his plans for La Tour Bakery and Cafe, which I recommend for a stop for lunch or a light dinner. However, if you are expecting Le Bistro like some other clueless critics, then head there. Anyway, if you want to find out more about the guy who brought us Vietnamese on French bread sandwiches, check it out here.

Finally, the Grub Club’s Sushi Ii (“ee” as in the Japanese word for “good”) was an awesome blast. Read one of our Yelper’s review here.

This Yelper-member is always on it, like Mari is on it at Nonstop. I surround myself with pretty, talented women, it makes my blogging easier. Hehe.

See you soon, gonna be talking about izakayas, sake, and telling you about our wonderful pictures from Sushi Ii. Laters.
