Food: Bernini (Honolulu)

Address: 1218 Waimanu St, Honolulu, HI 96814 Bernini Honolulu is an Italian-Japanese restaurant located in Hawaii. There is also a location in Tokyo, but the one in Hawaii is better in my opinion. It has more of an Italian influence than a Japanese one, as most of the dishes are either pasta or pizza. However,…

Food: Soba Ichi (Tokyo)

If you have ever been to Tokyo, I am sure you have seen all of the soba restaurants inside the train stations. They are typically full of businessmen on their way to work who want to get a quick bite to eat, but they are actually so good. The most popular chain that I know…

Apps: The Fork

The Fork is a subsidiary of TripAdivsor, and it is an app that specializes in finding restaurants in Europe.

Food: La Cucina (Honolulu)

Address: 725 Kapiolani Blvd, Honolulu, HI 96813 After having lived in Milan for a year, I don’t eat as much Italian food in the US as I used to. Between my pasta cooking and restaurants in Italy, I think I have eaten enough Italian food to last for a while. However, if I am ever…

Food: Shaloha Pita (Honolulu)

Shaloha PITA is a Mediterranean restaurant in Honolulu, which makes it relatively unique. While there a couple of other Greek/Mediterranean restaurants I know of, I think Shaloha PITA is the best one. The menu is really simple, as they only have 6 different plates. Each of the plates comes with rice, hummus, vegetables, and Pita…

Food: Broken Rice (Honolulu)

Address: 3607 Waialae Ave, Honolulu, HI 96816 Since my family has been doing a lot of takeout recently during lockdown, I have been lucky enough to try some new restaurants in Honolulu. One of my favorites that I have had recently is a Vietnamese restaurant called Broken Rice. I have never eaten at the restaurant…

Pine & Crane (Los Angeles)

Pine&Crane is a Taiwanese restaurant located in Silver Lake, Los Angeles. I really liked the design of the restaurant (although it is not the most conducive to social distancing), and the food was excellent as well. While Pine&Crane is traditionally a Taiwanese restaurant, they do have some other Chinese dishes as well. For example, as…

Food: Nabeyo Maido (Honolulu)

Address: 2919 Kapiolani Blvd #204 Nabeyo Maido is one of my favorite shabu-shabu restaurants not just in Hawaii, but anywhere. At Nabeyo Maido, the broths are so good that I do not even need the dipping sauces (for most other shabu-shabu places I need to use sesame sauce to get enough flavor). When I go…
