AHHHH, WINGS AT LAST!

All the hail to the food gods who have sent us Buffalo Boys Hoagies on King St.! I really get excited when a new place like this opens up here offering authentic and quality food.  These guys are the real deal man, finally, buffalo wings from... Buffalo, New York!  Owners Tomas who use to work at 12th Ave Grill and Eric, freshly flown over from Buffalo, are kicking some serious butt with their wings, hoagies (east coast versions of submarine sandwiches) and chicken fingers.  I'm thoroughly addicted, been there three days in a row now.  
Get over and support them in having the spirit to do it right!

SUBS AHOY!

Another thing that I have been missing here in Hawaii is a quality submarine sandwich. So as not to let any of my food desires go unattended to, Monday will be my day in heaven. I'll emulate one of my favorite styles of subs from Potbelly in Chicago. I've been eating them since the seventies and hooked a great many chefs on them too.  We'll make a toasted turkey, ham, salami and cheese sub with mustard, mayo, lettuce, tomato and herb-seasoned oil.  Come on down and dive into one!

BUT IS IT KOSHER?

OY VEY NO!  But it is Kosher Style.  Just back from Chicago and packing some my favorite Kosher style dogs from David Berg Co.  

So come Monday, we're talking all beef, skinless, full flavored franks with a little more spice and garlic to them.  Oy, you look kinda skinny  boy, have two!

IT'LL BE REIN-ING ON MONDAY!

We thought we should do our Reindeer Dogs more than once a year so catch one on the fly this Monday.  We like them Chicago Style, but I gotta tell you (as much as I cringe saying it) this one is good with ketchup too!  Have it your way though, it'll all taste great.  Basically we're looking at Alaskan venison blended with beef, grilling them brings out the zesty seasonings that has us loving the stuff.

MORE... WILD CUPCAKES


Currently on a short visit back to Chicago I had to check in with my cupcake girls at MORE.  Their creative juices continue to be flowing and I waaaay over indulged in sampling the latest and greatest.  The Chocolate Easter Egg was at the top, it had the moistest chocolate cake with a cream filling and buttercream frosting sprayed with ganache chocolate.... oh so decadent! Then there was Foie Gras with tart cherry, Lemon Poppyseed, Almond Flourless, Passionfruit Meringue, Bacon Brittle, Chocolate Chocolate, Carrot Ginger and thennnnn.... comatose!  

So then after an hour break, it's off to dinner at Paul Kahan's Publican Restaurant, yes folks a place devoted to pork and beer.  Let's see, would that work in Hawaii? No brainer huh. Fabulous exotic beers from around the world, the best chicharrones I've ever had in my life, glazed pork belly, fried smelt with deep fried cured lemons (oh so ono!), fresh pork sausage, tenderloin and shoulder.  They had to roll me out of there without mind you, dessert, at least that had been taken care of early on.

So for all you folks with a sweet tooth, this substantiates the saying, when in doubt, eat dessert first!

LIKE CLOCKWORK... IT'S ITALIAN BEEF!


Now the first Monday of the month has become a very important date for diehard beef fans, so ya better get you butt down to hank's early to get yours. Moist thinly sliced sirloin dripping in a zesty Italian aus jus gravy, green peppers or maybe some hot giardiniera on top all stuffed into Italian bread.  Oh boy, now that's what I'm talk'n about!
