Kyara Japanese Tapas

Kyara Japanese Tapas was my number one pick to have a little dinner with my friends during my birthday weekend.  I wouldn't have remembered this place if it weren't for them.  A friend had suggested to eat Japanese food and another suggested to eat Spanish tapas.  Since I like both foods, Kyara came to mind!  I knew Kyara would be a great pick because their foods are served in small servings and since the prices are reasonable, my friends and I could order a lot and try each other's dishes:



We were all given a complimentary salad while we were ordering.

Chef's specials


Edamame

Potato salad

I think this was ahi... The sauce that came with was nice!

Motsu ni- pork intestine stew.  The meat came in thin cube like strips (my first time seeing them in that form).

Gingko nuts-  They may look wet in appearance, but the gingko nuts
tasted dry on the inside and had a bold flavor.

YuDofu- A tofu soup with ponze.  I didn't expect the big cubes of tofu to fill me up the fastest!

Ika butter- stir fried squid with butter

Tofu steak- Somewhat the shape of a steak, but not a steak!

Butabara- pork belly (Tare/Shio)

Asparagus

Shiitake- these mushrooms had a nice, thick flesh.

Garlic potato- deep fried potato with garlic butter.  This is a great dish for all you potato lovers.

Tsukune- ground chicken and pork (Tare/Shio)

Spicy salmon donburi- They meshed a lot of salmon into that small bowel!

Cold soba noodles- These were under the shime section (foods that you should eat last), they hit the spot!  The noodles was cold to the point that they were soothing while eating them. 

Tofu mousse- Homemade vanilla tofu mousse.  This dessert was a surprise to me.  It may look like just a regular tofu, but its actually sweet!

Vanilla ice cream with homemade green tea syrup- The waiter had poured the syrup onto the ice cream in front of me,  what a great presentation!  Well you can't see the design now that the ice cream has melted...

These were some of the dishes we had!  Each of the small dishes had distinct and impressionable qualities.  Just by looking at these pictures again I can remember how great many of these dishes were.  Kyara is now definitely one of my favorite Japanese food spots to go to!

Herbs & Rye

After driving pass by  Herbs & Rye  for many years I finally went in to see what all the hype was about this place.  They serve classic cocktails that were popular during the Prohibition Era and before that time like the Gothic Age (unknown-1865) and Golden Age (1865-1900): Here's an example of of some of the drinks: I loved all the drinks they made, wasn't disappointed with any of them: Herbs & Rye also serves Italian food like  flatbreads , pasta, and  they're known for the steaks they cook, I'll try some next time!  I only had the appetite to drink: I really enjoyed my time here especially the atmosphere of a " speakeasy feel".  They get busy during the weekends so if you plan to dine in, make a reservation !

Hana Hou

During the last week of May, Bronsen and I went to Hawaii (my third trip) for vacation / family time / to eat! From my experience so far from eating Hawaiian local food, it consist an influential mix of traditional Hawaiian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, Polynesian, Portuguese, and American foods. 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!: Hawaiian Airlines going green: One night I was craving for saimin (ramen) noodles and spam musubi , a popular Hawaiian snack simply made with a block of rice, topped with a slice of spam, and wrapped in dried seaweed. Unfortunately, you can't see the noodles, its covered by the pork. I think there was more meat than the n
