The other weekend was Honolulu Night Market. It’s a quarterly community event that takes place in the Kaka’ako area. They have various food vendors, shopping vendors, and entertainment. It’s an awesome time out!
There’s a unique theme with every event. June’s event was entitled “Home,” in relevance to the Hõkūle’a returning home that day, after being at sea, traveling the world for three years.
I was so excited to finally try Turkish food from Istanbul Restaurant food stand. They’re in the making of opening a restaurant and bar soon. I can’t wait until they open!
The döner plate. Slices of lamb, with rice and salad, and a tzatziki yogurt sauce. Yummy! Tummy was happy!
I grew my love for Turkish food when I had traveled to Turkey many years ago. It has become my top five favorites! That yogurt sauce is what makes it SO BOMB! Whenever I have red meats and pork chops, I always make a yogurt sauce to pour over. I have a thing for yogurt.
I can’t wait to try more of Istanbul’s food. I’m so happy that we have a Turkish joint on the island!
I was craving dessert and was eyeing the chocolate-banana scone from 9Bar Hnl. I had to try it, and it was soo good! This place is a physical joint at Salt (see map above). They have “real food,” coffee, and baked goods. Great place to chill!
Check out Night Market. Next event will probably be in September.
The weekend is almost here! Yay!
