Chicken fried local rabbit - Salt Kitchen & Tasting Bar
Carrot butter, wilted greens, oatmeal stout gravy. $13
Salt Kitchen and Tasting Bar, Honolulu HI

This was very tasty, but I wish the portion was a little bigger cause I wanted more! I guess that’s why it was only a thirteen dollar appetizer. Totally worth it though.

Salt Kitchen and Tasting Bar, Honolulu HI

I really liked this restaurant in the Kaimuki neighborhood of Honolulu. I would have never found this place, but my friend who lives on the Island invited us out for dinner. I’m glad he did because this restaurant had a really cool vibe and kinda reminded me of a typical neighborhood SF restaurant. The food was delicous and these cocktails were tasty too!
