Fish Tacos in Cabo San Lucas

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! I’m looking forward to seeing Inaugural poet, Amanda Gorman, recite another original poem at the pregame show. She’s gonna be amazing!

It’s terrific that 7500 vaccinated healthcare workers were invited to an all-paid expense to the Super Bowl. What a treat! I honor them every day! There will never be a day where they’ll go unappreciated. They’re our every day heroes, forever and always. THANK YOU!

In 2014, I went on a South American cruise. Our last stop on the cruise before heading back to the U.S. was Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. I was so excited to try some authentic Mexican food. We have a bunch of Mexican restaurants in Hawai’i, but there are very, very few places that have good Mexican food here.

In Cabo, I ordered some good ol’ fish tacos. My fave and go-to Mexican dish… And, some Mexican beer. Yum! What a wonderful pair. It was really refreshing. I’m so glad that we had some time to explore the town and grab some authentic Mexican grinds. That’s what I look forward to most- trying cuisines in the country of origin.

Cabo was lovely. I recall it was a beautiful sunny day, and the temperature was just right. I hope to take a trip in the near future and tour the town more in-depth. And, eat more Mexican food. Perhaps order a margarita. My mouth is watering already.

Next week is the Lunar New Year; the Year of the Ox begins. It’s also Valentine’s Day. Looking forward to celebrating both holidays next week.

Take good care,

I got a nitsu-kick out of this dish!

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

I love Utage- it’s a local, Japanese, and Okinawan family-friendly restaurant. Their food is delicious! I ordered the ahi belly nitsuke, which was one of their specials of the day. I order the last of that dish, and I’m so happy I did. That dish was amazingly good! I’ve never had nitsuke before. It’s a Japanese simmering sauce that’s sweet and salty at the same time. I LOVE ahi belly, too. The meat was so tender and soft. Perfect pairing!

Here’s a recipe for this amazing sauce: Yum! I would love to make this sauce with something. It’ll be onolicious! I can’t wait!

Have a great Super Bowl Sunday! Wasn’t Justin Timberlake’s halftime show pretty cool? I enjoyed it!
