Dad’s Bday at Hy’s!

Happy Sunday! My family and I celebrated my dad’s bday a couple months ago to this day at Hy’s Steak House in Waikiki. We love steak and I haven’t been to Hy’s in years! We really enjoyed the food. The ambience was sophisticated and quiet. It was a very intimate dinner with great company and delicious food.

I ordered the steak au poivre, which is a New York striploin with black peppercorns and au poivre sauce. Au poivre basically means “pepper steak.” My favorite seasoning- pepper! I had to try this dish.

I absolutely loved it. The peppercorns with the sauce was amazing! The steak was cooked at medium-rate- my preference- and it was tender. I loved my sides, too- mashed potatoes and green beans. Got to have green beans- my ultimate favorite.

I haven’t been to a steak house that didn’t disappoint.

Have a great week!

Merry Christmas Eve- a perfect posting for the season!

Merry Christmas Eve and Happy Sunday! Almost two months ago, one of my dear friends got married at her dad’s cabin on the lake in Minnesota. We had a lovely, delicious dinner amongst family that I wanted to share. Perfect for the Christmas season.

On her wedding evening, we had prime rib, with homemade mash, green beans, carrots, and sauteed mushrooms. Yummy! That piece of meat was HUGE! I tried my best to finish it all, but couldn’t. I was way too full. Too bad I couldn’t bring it home as leftovers to finish. Haha, back home to Hawaii.

Carrot cake for dessert/their wedding cake! Yummy! Haven’t had carrot cake in so long!

What a coincidence, tomorrow we will be having prime rib for our Christmas dinner. Can’t wait! Be sure to lookout for another posting of that soon.

Have a beautiful Christmas with your loved ones. It’s my most favorite time of the year to celebrate with family.

Blessings,

Brunch places are poppin’ up everywhere!

Happy Sunday! Man! Brunch places are popping up everywhere in Hawaii. It’s the new “in” thing! Brunch food is awesome!

I tried Moena Café with my girlfriend at the new Ka Makana Ali’i Mall in Kapolei. It was really good. I loved the atmosphere. Moena Café is next to the new Hampton Inn & Suites. I didn’t know that there’s a location in Hawaii Kai as well, at Koko Marina Shopping Center.
