Adam and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary(!!!) with a trip to Hawaii and had an absolutely fantastic time. We chose to spend our entire trip in Oahu – versus island hopping – and ended up being very happy with that decision. We walked a ton, stuck our toes in the ocean, ate a million delicious things, and saw a billion beautiful things. I did not even take as many photographs as I usually do but I still need to split my recap into multiple posts!
I’ll share more about the amazing restaurants we visited in a later post, for now, here were some of the best Hawaiian bites…
** Chicken katsu musubi – seasoned rice with seaweed and fried chicken.
** Shrimp okonomiyaki – a savory Japanese pancake.
** Garlic butter shrimp plates from the food trucks out on the North Shore.
** The cookies from Honolulu Cookie Company are all 10/10 buttery and delicious.
** Butter mochi – cake made with glutenous rice flour.
** Dole Whip – blended frozen pineapple.
** We ate shave ice practically every single day of the trip! The standouts are in a later post but these were still pretty darn good! Both of these were Japanese kakagori style versus the more traditional Hawaiian style. From Ice Monster – coffee ice with brown sugar jelly, panna cotta, and cookies and cream gelato.
From Snow Factory – cookie butter ice and butterscotch ice with mochi, coffee jelly, and condensed milk.
