Mahina & Suns | Where to Eat in Oahu

This casual yet trendy semi-outdoor restaurant inside the Surfjack Hotel in Waikiki has great vibes to go with its island influenced menu. We dined for brunch, which offered an eclectic menu of both brunch classics and unique items like our favorite dish, the pork adobo fried rice. It takes the Filipino pork dish and combines […]

Reef Bar & Market Grill | Where to Eat in Oahu

Grilling a steak by the beach with Diamond Head behind me is definitely not one of the things I expected to be doing during my time in Oahu. But there I was, standing behind a hot grill with a giant spatula, flipping a ribeye steak while looking out the windows to see the sun setting […]

ALOHA! It’s officially 2018, which means a new year for me to use as an excuse to post more on my site 🙂 I just came back from an amazing trip to Oahu, which also gave me a 12 hour flight back to NYC followed by a 16 hour flight back to Hong Kong, so […]

Thanksgiving Breakfast Stuffing with Baked Eggs and Bacon

Now that I’m in Hong Kong, this is my first year celebrating Thanksgiving without a turkey, but I’ll be damned if I let that prevent me from enjoying my absolute favorite side — stuffing. Croutons are legitimately my favorite snack (I eat them straight out of the bag like a raccoon), and stuffing is basically […]
