…And the bday celebration continues!

Tonight, my girlfriends took me out for my very belated bday! We tried Scratch Kitchen & Meatery at South Shore Market at Ward Village. I heard of Scratch Kitchen & Bakeshop in Chinatown, but never tried it. I learned tonight that that location closed.

Scratch Kitchen & Meatery is the place to be at South Shore! When we were seated, it wasn’t too crowded, but soon after, in the blink of an eye, the entire place was packed. The menu was fancy and there was no distinction of what was considered “pupus,” or appetizers and what was an entreΓ©. The staff encouraged sharing/family style.

I ordered the Southern Hot Chicken: TWO spicy chicken with buffalo-type spicy sauce, that sat on a French toast, topped with sprouts and arugula. Wasn’t bad! It was pretty spicy, and tangy, too!

After dinner, we were excited to have some ice cream from Lucy’s Lab Creamery next door. I love their ice cream flavors. They got some interesting ones, like Fruit Loop vodka. Really?! I got the lychee vegan ice cream, which was made with coconut milk. It was interesting. Had the taste of both lychee with coconut. It was a little too rich for my tummy, if ya know what I mean. Haha!

Korean BBQin!

Happy Social Saturday!

My girlfriend and I (August babies) celebrated our bdays at Gen Korean BBQ House at Ala Moana with our friends. We’ve been wanting to try this place and we were glad we finally did! It was pretty good! All-you-can-eat with a set price for lunch and dinner. However, if you don’t finish what you’ve ordered, the restaurant will charge you for anything that wasn’t eaten. Oooh! That’s good, though. Food should NOT be wasted! So, we made sure we didn’t leave anything left- haha!

Gen Korean BBQ House is located where the old Tsukiji Fish Market used to be. I loved the new atmosphere. It was very “club-like.” When we got there, it wasn’t too crowded- they don’t take reservations. But in the nick of time, the restaurant was filled!

We ordered garlic chicken, bulgogi, brisket, and boneless kalbi. We LOVED the brisket and kalbi. We ordered multiple rounds of those dishes! Whoo hoo! My mouth is watering just thinking about it! The side veggies were delish! I look forward to that when dining at Korean restaurants. So good! And I love that you can have more if you want!

They provided three different sauces: shio (salt), sesame, and ponzu. I liked the ponzu sauce the best. It paired well with all the meats. Yum!
