DA COCONUT CAFE - ISLAND STYLE

The Bad Tuna ohana headed to Temecula, California this past weekend to meet other family tuna members. The plan was to head to Pechanga Casinos but we were hungry. Luckily we discovered a Hawaiian restaurant in Temecula called Da Coconut Cafe - Island Style Poke. The food was amazing. The Kalua Pork Plate Lunch was one of our choices. Bad Tuna Bob enjoyed the short ribs and a poke bowl. We finished with malasadas and enjoyed ourselves so much that we returned the next day.  We were very interested in their Samoan Plate, but that is only available the first...

HALE'IWA JOE'S RESTAURANT

If you haven’t been to Halei’wa Joe’s, mark it on your list of restaurants. There are two Halei’wa Joe’s on the island of Oahu. We loved both locations. The one on the Eastside of the island (Kaneohe) is hidden in a residential area situated in a botanical like garden theme (Haiku Gardens). The other one is located right close to Halei’wa’s monumental bridge in downtown, which has spectacular view of sunsets. You can check out their website for more information (i.e. menu, photos, directions, etc.).  I’m not picky like my other half when it comes to DA FOOD!  They have...

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE PORK AT KONO'S

It’s all about the pork at Kono’s on the North Shore of Oahu. We accidentally stumbled on this fast food restaurant while cruising the shopping center in Halei’wa. Matter of fact, it was one of those wild chickens running around town that led the way to our lunch adventure. That chicken was lucky considering Kono’s specialty is BBQ Pork. LOL!  With that said, we were glad we found Kono’s. The food is great! My wife and I had the BBQ Pork Bomber(Kalua pork wrapped in flour tortilla) and they were pretty big and ono (delicious). We got so full that...
