Oysters Prepared 24 Different Ways

There’s a stretch of Vinh Khanh Street in District 4 where you can lines of stores making seafood for your street eating pleasure. One such place, Chilli, stood out for its offering of oysters prepared in 24 combinations. There was a bit of a hesitation splitting two dozen oysters between the two of us, but as you know, we only live once. Plus, this was a place for nhau, where friends get together for hours of food and beer. There was plenty of time and no need to rush. We…

A Taste of Hawai’i at Umeke’s

Not to be confused with the original Umeke’s, Umeke’s Fishmarket Bar and Grill is the full restaurant with a bar. Plenty of room here to meet up with friends to eat and drink. With all of Sunday dedicated to happy hour why wouldn’t anyone want to spend it here. Well, that’s if of course you were tired of the beach. But I digress. We wanted a glimpse of the Hawaiian food here in Kailua-Kona. This place kept coming up in our research so why not give it a try. It’s a just a bit outside…

Finally, TBD

I go by this place everyday. Each time it gets more and more enticing. The aroma that comes out of here makes me feel like Winnie the Pooh around a jar of honey. My steps gets lighter and my grin was unstoppable. So unfair to deal with that each and every day. Maybe I should get another job or move away, or… I should try this place out. Sure enough this was what we did. The restaurant was actually the sister restaurant of AQ, a couple doors down. They both…

Ox

This place was calling my name. Literally. Get it? Okay, fine. I’m horrible at humor. I’m an eater not a comedian. And hopefully, my obsessive eating will help you out. Especially for this restaurant, Ox, which happened to be close to my hotel. I’ve been reading about ever since I landed. I would have tried it earlier, but Sunday had a wait list that had me rethink my plans. So here I was on a Wednesday when it first opened at five. Fork and spoon in hand. Even though this…

Drakes Bay Oyster Company

Here’s the deal. I’ve been meaning to head up to Tomales Bay for some oysters for years. Ever since I moved up to the Bay area four years ago, I never got the chance. Until now. And of course, this technically wasn’t Tomales Bay. But still, this place was in the vicinity about thirty minutes away. It wasn’t fancy like the other places and quite frankly, I enjoy these types of establishments. They focus on one thing, the thing they’re good at, oyster’ing (don’t think that’s an actual word) and…
