Getting Back into the Swing of Things

As I extend my self pretty thin with all the projects I am working on let’s add back a task to my full plate. Let’s talk about food news and events again (albeit with less regularity than less year).

Anyway, as I mentioned in the prior post La Tour Cafe is up and running. If you are more curious about the Bakehouse read about it here at the Honolulu Weekly. I highly recommend the cafe’s macaroons (Yuzu especially), mint water, and their French dip.

Jade Dynasty is now open at Ala Moana Shopping Center. This Hong Kong-style eatery replaces the Kyoto Ohsho location with a $3.5 million dollar renovation price tag. Read more about it at Honolulu Magazine here.

Love food? Love trucks? Love food trucks? Well, Honolulu is having its 1st Food Truck Rally. Sounds fun, delicious, and cheap (well, not with the way I order plate lunches) . . . check out the flyer here for more info.

Roberto Viernes, over at Midweek, writes about how snobbery can ruin the wine experience. I think he has much truth for someone who is an expert in wines. He would rather learn to improve himself and his experience. I enjoy how he ends his piece:

So let everyone enjoy it [wine], and if you have something that will add to the experience, I’d love to hear it. Otherwise, please fill your glass and mouth with wine.

I think some food writers are like the critic in Disney’s Ratatouille and may need a swig of wine or stew to remind them that snobbery can ruin anything.

Personally, I love Izakaya food and I recently noticed two that I have been hearing about. Izakaya Naru, near TCBY and Sushi King and Izakaya Shinn. Both sound pretty tasty and if anyone has suggestions what to order drop a line.

Anyway, last thing, Art After Dark is coming up and the food at this always fun event is being down once again by Town and Downtown. For more information click on this link.

Until next time have some good eating!

Learn How to Be a Snob

Don't let anyone catch you making that pose if you want to be down to earth.

I stumbled across this website when I was looking for suggestions on how to pair wine and cheese together. Now, this is a) on the internet and b) it is called “2BASnob” . . . I’m not sure how trustworthy its “snobbery” can be when it is doling out info on the net and is using “1337” speak (if you don’t know what “1337” means that is a good thing).

Anyway, just use this as a guide, but if you are going to one of the nice wine and cheese shops we have around the island many of the owners and workers are really helpful and friendly.

Lastly, bug our sommelier-member if he isn’t too busy. I always find him very informative and smart when it comes to getting tipsy.

Cheers.
