Kauai V

We've had a really long week. I was at a teaching conference in San Diego and we stayed at my parents. Now, it is back to business. FYI, Amanda is currently sleeping and looking really adorable.


On to more pressing matters: Kauai Part Five.


This is the evening of July 3rd. Eating in Poipu, which is where we stayed, was a bit hard for dinner because many of the resturants are basically faux upscale places that make me sad. But we found several gems. One was this place

It was in this non-descript building in a resort/residential area. But it was amazing. Probably the best meal of the trip was here. So good we went twice. A friend of Amanda's suggested it. Good call.

Dinner started with wine


132


We ordered this bottle and one of the waiters gave us this very disaproving look. Not entirely sure why. We aren't exactly wine snobs, and this bottle wasn't expensive. We both really liked it. We mostly laughed. I really enjoy wine, as does Amanda, but a lot of the rituals with wine people do seem odd. Maybe we are just losers. It tasted good, what else matters?


I should mention more about the resturant. It seems like an Italian Restuarant, but it is more of a weird fusion resturant. Totally Italian base, but lots of French, Greek, and Asian flavors. Really unique.


Case in point, bread with amazing hummus.

Amanda ordered this slice of heaven.


134


It was a filet with gorgonzola butter, panko onion rings, green beans, and gnocchi. She raved about it. Calling it such things as "the best steak ever." Blasphemy? I tired a bite, and it was pretty amazing. I think she said she wanted to marry it as well. Weird.


I had this

Not very attractive on camera, a bit camera shy I guess, but amazing. It was carbonara risotto with crispy pork. I am a sucker for pork skin. If there is pork with the skin on it on the menu I will order it no matter what. The waiter merely mentioned it and I jumped on it. Nothing is better on the planet. Well, maybe a few things. But this was pretty fantastic.


It was a great meal and we wanted dessert, but the selections didn't sound so hot here. I guess that is the only knock on this place, and really most places. Dessert sucks.


So we got ice cream and a place called Lapperts. Now we may or may not have been a bit wine drunk at this point, but I don't remember what we got from Lapperts. We went several times and they have a lot of exotic ice creams with typical Hawaii ingredients, things like coconut, mac nuts, and kona coffee. Whatever we had was good and came with little American flags. Which I affixed to our rental car for the rest of the trip because why not?

July 3rd was also the anniversary of our rehearsal dinner one year ago!

PS. Happy birthday to Mari!

In SC, something of the most meh looking restaurants are the very best! Case in point: Charleston's Cafe where I get my parfaits. Great eats. Hummus delivered with the bread? I'd be all over that

That's why I don't review wines! I know someone is going to come along and be all, "How can you say that when it totally tastes like peaches on rainbows with a finish of Brazil nuts!" Um, right. I'm with you guys, I want it to taste good and not break the bank.

Also agree about desserts, we never get them out really. Too expensive and who knows what's in it. Love the ice cream shooters! :D
