Thee BEST soup/salad buffet ever!

I love Sweet Tomatoes/Souplantation. They are, hands-down, the BEST soup and salad buffet EVER! Their food is so good; so refreshing, and healthy.

It’s been several years since I last ate there, in California. I got to dine there recently in Arizona. My friends took me there when I went to visit them. Yay! I was so stoked! It was well worth it! The quality of the food never changed!

There were too many selections to choose from, so I took pictures of all the food- haha! It was overwhelming for sure! My top faves were the toss salad with pickles and red wine vinaigrette dressing, spicy cucumber quinoa salad, the garlic cheese bread, the blueberry muffins with honey-whipped butter, and the vanilla/chocolate soft serve frozen yogurt. Oh my gosh! My mouth is watering just thinking about it. I want to go back! I wish we had a Sweet Tomatoes here in Hawaii. I would be there ALL THE TIME!

Good ol’ shave ice!

I love shave ice- it’s so refreshing! Can’t beat the top three flavors that make “the rainbow-” strawberry, banana, and vanilla. It makes such beautiful colors. What makes shave ice even more exciting to eat is the cool toppings you can add on top, such as tapioca balls, mochi balls, fruit, fruit jellies, custard, pudding, ice cream, azuki beans, condensed milk, taro, and get this, strawberry jam! Yes, you read me right- jam! Tried that with our shave ice and it was AWESOME! It paired so well. I thought it would be weird, but it wasn’t. It was really good! Genius!

Ordered this shave ice from Coffee or Tea? at Pearl Kai Shopping Center. They have two locations. The first location is based at McCully Shopping Center. This joint has amazingly delicious milk teas, and all different kinds of varieties to choose from!

Here is an article of the best shave ice joints on O’ahu: It’s all about the fine, smooth ice, that melts in your mouth, and the variety of flavors and toppings, too!

Happy new week!
