Prices are shockingly reasonable, especially for the portions and quality.

  • A Weekend On Kauai

    Destination: Kauai

    Saturday night found us at the Kapaa Jodo Mission for their annual bon dance festival. We ate “pronto pups” (you may know them as corn dogs) and “flying saucers” (a.k.a sloppy joe’s) and chili rice, the staple foods of these events happening most every weekend throughout the summer across the Hawaiians Islands.
