Lightly seared and served with caramelized sweet onions and ripe mango and rich unagi glaze drizzle. $18.95 Sansei Seafood Restaurant, Waikoloa HI
Omg, I may go to hell for eating this but since California has banned foie gras, I needed a quick foie fix! When I saw it on the Sansei menu, I had to order it – so sue me! Lol. And it was delicious!!! I’ve never had foie gras as nigiri before, but it worked. All the extra components were also tasty.
Duke’s Mai Tai: Hawaiian juices with two different types of rum and orange curacao. $9 Duke’s Waikiki, Honolulu HI
Duke’s is super touristy, but it’s still nice to sit outside on Waikiki beach and enjoy the sunset. The food is middle of the road and the drinks are weak and sugary, but that’s OK because you’re on vacation, lol! The mai tai had good flavor though.
Mango-Rita: Jose Cuervo Gold tequila, mango, lime and triple sec. $8.50
This was more on the lime side than on the mango side and it could have used another shot of tequila. Oh well.
Tortilla chips served with house-made mango salsa. $2.99 Taco Mamacita, Sullivan’s Island SC
Hmm, definitely not authentic tasting for Mexican food which is perfectly fine, but it actually lacked flavor too! I was a little surprised that a mango salsa could be this bland. Hey, it was only three bucks so I’ll take it!
Fort Moultrie Tour sign. According to the sign, Fort Moultrie was active for 171 years!
With avocado, radish, grapefruit, Italian parsley and spiced sauce on toasted brioche. Served with greens and ginger vinaigrette. $10.99 Papillote, Savannah GA
This was bright and refreshing, and so different from anything I’ve tried before! There were so many yummy components to this and they all tasted great together. I do wish that the salad was pre-dressed because it was difficult to toss the salad on such a small plate. The ginger vinaigrette was a nice addition though. A beautiful dish!
Revolutionary War Haitian Soldiers Monument. Walking around Savannah was quite fun and you can’t help but feel the history surrounding you. This statue is located in a cute plaza next to the City Market.
Mango-habanero hot sauce, avocado crema. $18 Mesa Grill, Las Vegas NV
Mmm, this was SO good but I think it was a little overpriced for such a small portion. I know it’s Las Vegas but this seemed overtly expensive. I loved that the tuna pieces were quite large, it made for a more substantial feel. It was difficult to tear some of the pieces apart though because the connective membranes hadn’t been cut all the way through. Kinda lame.
