And the Mexican food continues!

Over the weekend, I got together with my buds and we finally tried Egghead Cafe. Yesss! We’ve been wanting to go there for a long while. We had to wait a bit, but it was worth it!

I ordered the Mexican benedict, which consisted of: chorizo (sausage), sour cream, and verde (green Mexican sauce). Yummy! This is the first time I’ve ordered a “non-traditional” benedict. This was my first time having chorizo, too. I really enjoyed it! That sausage was tasty!

I would love to dine there again and try more dishes off their awesome menu! They have a pretty extensive drink menu as well!

I found an interesting article on chorizo: http://www.epicurious.com/archive/blogs/editor/2014/04/chorizo-101.html

Go to Egghead, you egg head! Haha!

Sunday Funday brunch lunch!

Happy Sunday! Last week, my boyfriend and I enjoyed lunch at the famous Boots & Kimo’s in Kailua. It’s a breakfast/brunch/lunch place that closes by 3pm every day, except Tuesday.

Tons of Japanese tourists line up outside to eat there. They are known for their macadamia nut pancakes. Yummy!

We shared the banana mac nut pancakes, which was awesomely delicious. Banana pancakes are my ultimate favorite! We did not need to pour syrup over the hotcakes. The sauce was enough! I ordered Grandma’s own hamburger steak recipe breakfast with eggs (over-easy) and rice. Oh, it was so good! I always enjoy trying different “homemade” hamburger steaks. The taste is so satisfying! Makes me want to make some in my kitchen. Can’t beat homemade hamburger!

Pancake love!

I sent my dear friend, who lives on the West Coast, some goodies from Hawaii for Christmas and she shared this photo. She made these yummy taro macadamia nut pancakes from the mix I got her. Looks delish! I love taro- that’s how poi (a Hawaiian staple) is made from. I found an article with interesting health facts about taro: https://www.organicfacts.net/health-benefits/other/taro-root.html

Macadamia nuts are very popular in Hawaii. It’s like gold here. As most nuts are healthy, here is what macadamia nuts are good for: http://foodfacts.mercola.com/macadamia.html.

When I was growing up, I remember Taro Brand® for their poi and chop suey mix. Now, they’ve expanded and make a variety of different products, such as pancake mixes. Visit their website to order: https://www.tarobrand.com/products.

For you Hawaii locals, Taro Brand® products can be found at our local grocery stores.

TGIF! Have a great weekend!
