CPK

Town Square has many places of where to eat. After walking around, we decided to eat at California Pizza Kitchen. It was my first time eating at CPK, and as I was looking at the menu, I was surprised with the types of pizzas they made. No pizza was ordinary like the Cheeseburger Pizza, Pear & Gorgonzola, Jamaican Jerk Chicken, and etc.

I was willing to try anything and ate Jessica's favorite dishes, Chicken Picatta - chicken breast in a creamy lemon-caper sauce with spaghettini pasta and Wild Mushroom Pizza - Cremini, Portobello, Shiitake, and white mushrooms, Fontina and Mozzarella cheeses with a wild mushroom walnut pesto garnished with chopped Italian parsley. I enjoyed the lemon-caper sauce on the Chicken Picatta (I love lemony foods!) and liked how there was a lot of mushrooms in the Wild Mushroom Pizza and the crust was the best! I know I'm going back to CPK just to try out their other pizzas!

If you're fond of any those ethnic foods like me, its like food heaven in Hawaii!

We flew on our favorite airline, Hawaiian Airlines. Bronsen was hoping to get a nice meal than a snack because he always has a big appetite. His wish came true, the complimentary meal came with pasta with vegetables and vinegar dressing:



and a big brownie!:
