And Aloha Means Goodbye

Last week my wife and I took a weeks vacation to Kauai.  We stayed on Poipu Beach and took in some local sites, sunny beaches and delicious food.  We started off by going to a local golf course breakfast place…it was OK.  I admit I should have tried something different on the menu, but I lived with my choice.  In the coming days, we struck gold.  After touring the Kauai Coffee Plantation, we enjoyed a local favorite…The Brick Oven Pizza.  We enjoyed a whole wheat crust medium with Canadian Bacon and Mushroom pizza that rivals some of the best I have ever had….growing up in Upstate New York, that’s saying something!  I grilled some pork chops that night and we shared a green bean and potato salad…one of my wife’s favorites.  The Condo we stayed in had a grill and I was happy to use it.

In the coming days we enjoyed seared Ahi tacos from a local taco stand, garlic shrimp from a roadside shrimp truck, some locally made white chocolate-lavender gelato , a local delicacy known as a Puka Dog (a polish sausage with a spicy aïoli and a starfruit relish), a shaved ice from Jo Jo’s,  and we finished the trip with a delicious meal at a local restaurant…Casablanca.  They have something for everyone and everything is handmade.  I enjoyed a perfectly grilled filet mignon with garlic whipped mashed potatoes, green beans and a balsamic demi glace.  I washed it all down with the bartender’s specialty, a basil mojito.

It was a wonderful trip with great experiences and delectable food and was truly sorry to say aloha.
