We’re off to Kona today!  Yippeee!  Yesterday was a pretty intense day … lots of planning and organizational meetings.  It’ll be great to spend some quality R&R on the Kohala Coast with family and friends … oh yeah, and play music too!  Looking forward to seeing you all at Twilight …

I had a late meeting last night at a new izakaya restaurant on Kapahulu Ave. called YAKITORI GLAD … I know, weird name, but there was nothing weird about the food there.   It was GREAT!  And the most amazing thing is that everything is priced at $3.90!  Even the nama (draft) beers are $3.90 regardless of whether you order a small, medium, or large mug!  And the food was delicious – everything from the yakitori sticks to salads and kamameshi, even pho!  My favorites were the chicken nanban – a tender chicken cutlet with a special house tartar sauce, the yaki-onigiri – a grilled musubi (rice ball), and the momo curry shio-yaki – grilled skewers of chicken marinated in curry.  The portions were decent and the service excellent … definitely a place I would heartily recommend!  And the best part of all .. everything is $3.90!!  Amazing …

Aloha, “D”
