Aloha Kakahiaka, peeps! It’s Wednesday morning and I’ve been up since 6AM for two reasons: one, I have to walk the puppies because our pal, Linda, deserted us 🙂 (nah, she went back to Seattle for a few weeks!), and two, I have a breakfast meeting with a good friend of mine at a place called Harry’s Cafe located right in Kakaako near our IOLANI store. Harry’s is a small, neighborhood diner that serves local “comfort” food … stuff like corn beef hash w/ eggs on fried rice, kim chee omelets with lup chong, grilled fresh(?) island fish w/ eggs & rice, or a mixed plate consisting of eggs, rice, spam, bacon, lup chong, and pancakes (burp!) … you sort of get the picture. The place itself is a dive, from formica chairs and tables to a menu that’s written on everything from butcher paper to chalkboard with a magic marker or chalk! Foods not bad, though … especially after an early “dawn patrol” (surfing) at Ala Moana.
We’re meeting with our good friend, Reiko Rogers, of Studio Rim Hawai’i at a place called Miyabi tonight. I’ve never been there, but she says it’s good for izakaya so we’re gonna check it out. I’ll let you know how it is ….
