Korean delight & a lil bit of snow!

I love Korean food, especially the Soon Du Bu Chi-Ke (sometimes spelled Jigae), or better known as the soft tofu stew. Mmm, mmm! It’s so good! My ultimate favorite Korean soup ever!!! The best part of Korean dining is the kim-chee and unlimited side dishes!! Oh, gosh! My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

I went to Millions Restaurant in the Ke’eaumoku area. I was originally set on ordering kal-bi (my usual go-to Korean dish), but I decided to order the tofu stew instead.

This was DA BOMB! It had a good amount of soft tofu, clams, beef, and vegetables. Yummy! Just the right amount of spiciness, too.

After our dinner, my bf and I decided to grab dessert at Snow Factory at McCully Shopping Center. We love the dessert there. It’s a combination of shave ice and ice cream. They have a ton of different flavors and set desserts to choose from.

We ordered random flavors: Hawaiian punch, banana, and peanut butter with gummy bears, mochi balls, and strawberry boba (pops). They were all excellent. I want to go back to try more flavors!

According to their website, it looks like Snow Factory is a Korean company since they have a branch located in Korea. What a coincidence! Korean for dinner and Korean for dessert. Haha!

Shave ice at Uncle Clay’s

It’s #tbt!

Last year, I were walking around Aina Haina Shopping Center and came across Uncle Clay’s House of Pure Aloha. I was interested in what this place was. Found out that it was shave ice joint, made with all-natural flavors. Awesome! I’m all for the natural! I was stoked and had to try it!

My boyfriend and I shared the strawberry and milk chocolate shave ice bowl. Oh.my.goodness! It was to-die-for! One of the BEST shave ice I’ve eaten! The ice was so smooth; it just melted in my mouth, combined with the wonderful flavors of all-natural strawberry and chocolate. Mmmm! I can’t wait to return to have another bowl!
