Avocado, roasted golden beets, roasted brussels sprouts, egg, and caramelized onions on mixt greens with Point Reyes blue cheese dressing. $10.40
Mixt Greens, San Francisco CA
My work location is the land of the $10+ lunch salad. I was actually surprised that I enjoyed this one though. I liked the variety of toppings they had available, and they were really good quality. The price really starts to jack up when you add meats though.
Pink Mocha Cafe, Kailua-Kona HI
These weren’t very good. They were dry, small, and lacked any crumble. I’m not sure why they would charge $3.50 for a mini muffin! The service was REALLY slow the morning we tried this place and they kept messing up our orders, but the manager was really friendly and apologetic for the delays and mistakes. She also gave us comped coffees for our next visit.
Laniakea Cafe, Kona International Airport (KOA)
These were disgusting and super greasy! And even worse than the onion rings was the woman working the cash register. She had such a horrible attitude and shouldn’t be allowed to work in customer service. I would rather go hungry than return to this lame restaurant when I’m back in KOA.
Tortilla chips, black bean-corn salsa, gucamole, pepper jack cheese, stadium-style cheese, sauce, salsa fresca, sour cream, jalapenos. Happy hour $4
Huggo’s on the Rocks, Kailua-Kona HI
This was definitely “mini”, but it tasted good and for only 4 bucks I’m not gonna complain. Send me another mai tai, and I’m good!🙂
Kalua pork (slow roasted salted pork shoulder), lau lau (pork and butterfish wrapped in taro leaf and steamed), pickled clams, and rice. $14.50
Da Poke Shack, Kailua-Kona HI
This was very good, but I think I prefer their poke selections better. The meats were tender and tasty though, and those clams are still killer!
House-ground lamb and angus beef, burrata and oregano, house aioli spread, served with fries. $15
Lark, San Francisco CA
The patty looked SO tiny on the bun, but it was sure tasty! I’m not sure I’ve ever had a burger with burrata on top before, but I’d definitely have it again (I love burrata!). And the fries were damn good!
3 pieces served with rice and macaroni salad. $10.95
Shaka Restaurant, Naalehu HI
I wasn’t expected much, but this fried chicken was pretty damn good! I liked the tasty breading, and the chicken was juicy and flavorful. Mmm…
