|Poke bowl at Nicos (not to be confused with the Nicos in AZ that is a Mexican food place) I would eat this all day everyday|
Today I bring you some tastes from the island. We like to eat while on holiday- like really eat. There's no carb counting going on while we're relaxing- well actually there's no carb counting going on in our house anyway but especially not during vacation!
We ate at a lot of tiny family owned Vietnamese restaurants. I am just crazy about Vietnamese food. Neil is half Vietnamese and his family makes the best Pho, so I am spoiled and have developed a craving for it! I really love the atmosphere of the little mom and pop Vietnamese shops we ate at. Usually they had kiddos running around or serving. Some of the families lived behind their restaurants and it was just touching how it was something that they were all dedicated to. Our bowl of noodles or egg rolls were treated with th utmost care. You can eat in lots of places in Honolulu and a lot of people get comfortable on Waikiki and eat at Jimmy Buffets every night- which isn't bad, but we love exploring the city and all it has to offer the tummy!
We ate the best noodle bowls ever at Lucky Belly ( I mentioned them in a post before because I love their featured artist so much Yumiko Glover and their magical noodles), we ate in the sky atop of a rotating restaurant called the Top of Waikik, we had tasty mochi at Bubbies, we tried authentic Japanese food at a hidden restaurant you'd walk by on the street with out a second look (it also had the coolest decor) and ate musubi for breakfast, and poke for lunch.
Now enjoy some pics of us stuffing our faces!
|One of the many tiny Vietnamese food places we ate at. Sooo yummy!|
|Bubbies Mochi shop. There is a line outside this tiny ice cream shop and I now know why!|
|Our rotating view at The Top of Waikiki restaurant. So pretty!|
|Musubi for breakfast on many occasions! PS that is an ASOS Maxi that I pretty much lived in while I was there. So comfy!|
