I am not the biggest breakfast fan, and most days I don’t eat breakfast at all. However, there is one really good breakfast place by my house, and it is called Moena Cafe.

Moena Cafe has all of the traditional breakfast items like pancakes, benedicts, scrambled eggs, etc.; however, I have never ordered any of them myself. When I go to Moena Cafe, I always get the same dish, which is the Short Rib Loco Moco with fried rice (the picture above, except with fried rice instead of white rice).

For those of you who are not from Hawaii, a loco moco is normally a hamburger with eggs and gravy on top of rice. However, Moena Cafe’s loco moco is different, as it has short ribs instead of a hamburger; also, you have the option to get fried rice (which you 100% should if you ever go!). It is an excellent combination, and it is so good that I never feel compelled to order anything else.

Like I said earlier, I am not a breakfast fan, so I wouldn’t say I’m an expert on breakfast places in Hawaii. However, compared to some of the most famous breakfast places in Hawaii such as Cinnamon’s and Eggs n’ Things, I would much prefer Moena Cafe. Even if it weren’t so close to my house, I would still choose to go to Moena Cafe over other breakfast places in Honolulu.

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.

NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.

I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
