Interesting!  Not sure if I fit into this group but sounds interesting and love learning more about the social aspect of the impact it's going to make.

This is an ultra cool venue.  Enjoyed the movie and the signature beach looking chairs were very comfortable.  I'm marking this on my calendar to attend every month!

It does have it's pros & cons.  When applied wisely the doors are wide open to instant information at your fingertips.  I love it!

I could use a staycation!  And walk the streets of Waikiki aimlessly looking hungry...

@nonstopmari Yep missed that one.  Had a migraine before any tasting happened that day.. LOL  Thanks for the 411 I'm looking to get tickets for a friend and I already bought the early entrance.  This girl needs to eat before any tasting this year.

You're right.  If not for the name I don't think I would think of stopping.

So the light bulb finally went on for me.....  Eat sushi how the chef intended.  Never mind my small mouth, get the full experience on the joy of its intention.  Took me this long to realize that key point.  Maybe if I throttle back on the bevy I can visit Sasabune soon.  Thanks for the tip M.C.!

My better half is more romantic than I am.  Hence "better half"....  I'll surprise him and take him to see this movie.  It should give him the idea that I'm still worth it. hahaha

@nonstopmari Restaurant inside a furniture store?  There's nothing wrong with that fabulous idea.  The way Kakaako is growing he's ahead of the trend.  I've seen only a few more like this (can't think which ones just yet), and I'm in love with the ambiance it brings.  After all, we all like to eat "comfort" foot (pun intended).  My salad was excellent especially with all the crunch going on.

I enjoy food and so I've opted to "share" my food most of the time with the better half.  Instead of ordering two plates just order one with toss salad instead of mac & or rice.

Today's special 06/05/14 is "sushi" - But I was yearning for the shave ice cone!  It's a great find @Myong !  Arigato for the 411

Ok I was smart enough to go early!  Figured I go a little healthy since I indulge so much lol.  The salad dressing I got was "Asian" and it was oishi.

@Myong @iamwhite  Yes, that would be something different.  Like a huge nori cone, but I guess it would need to be inside of a paper cone.  Hmmm not sure if it still counts...

I've only started eating Natto a year ago.  Look at what I've been missing--, an entire community of foodies was hiding from me!

Interesting place.  My first perception of this place "scary".  Maybe it's the entrance that's got me spooked.  But great honest review.  I think I'll go just to try the mandoo looks yummy.

Sounds tempting.  Looks like a trip down there is in order.

I'm excited!  Didn't know about this place and glad I read your review!  I'm going there today and have myself a jar of greens, with the jar of course.  What a cool what to have lunch.

Totally spot on Mari!  I still find my self arranging my food and taking pictures with enough lighting.  Only to find that my food has gotten cold.  This habit of mines has gotten so out of control that I needed to purchase a mophie to ensure my smart phone still has life.  Not sure if anyone pays attention to the variety of food I eat but yes, I do it because I love food.  And like Myong mentioned, just because a small group of people eat at a "new" place (repeatedly - same small group) doesn't mean it's all what's cracked up to be.  To each his/her own.

A good whiskey makes the taste buds do the happy dance.  My current favorite this year is the #1 American Whiskey - Balcones.  Although you can't buy it in Hawaii, if you make a trip out to California you find it at Total Wines & Spirits.

I couldn't agree more.  Thank you for articulating it for me :-)  The undeserved buzz of recent and revisited food establishments is making me question the authenticity.  Maybe I'm a shopaholic instead of a foodie?  Yes, that's it!  I need to shop more. hahaha
