GOEN Dining + Bar

On my mom’s last night here, we decided on a whim to go to GOEN Dining + Bar. We had all been before and decided the good food and nice outdoor atmosphere were the perfect combo for her last evening. Lucky for us, Chef Roy Yamaguchi was doing a tasting menu (which Josh ordered). We even got to snag a picture with him. The food and service are consistently above average. We’ve been doing a lot of carryout with them during our shelter-in-place time! Will be so thrilled when we can venture back out and eat there in person.

Gaslamp

My mom came to visit back in February and we were able to cross a few of her bucketlist items for Oahu off her list. One of them being a dinner at the Gaslamp speakeasy in Kailua. We had heard mixed reviews on what the experience was like. Happy to say, it blew any expectations we had out of the water. The drinks, food, and service were all incredible. Really excited to go back once our world goes back to normal a bit!

Danielle & Brick Visit!

Josh and I kicked off 2020 with our lovely friends visiting. Unfortunately, our weather wasn’t exactly cooperating for their trip. However, we were able to squeeze in a beach walk, lots of good food, Pearl Harbor, and a couple hikes. Ready for them to come back!

 

Casablanca

Last week, we finally tried the Moroccan restaurant in Kailua that had been on our list for a few months. This was my first time trying Moroccan and it definitely did not disappoint!

Fourth of July!

We celebrated the fourth this year in pretty much the best way possible — grilling out with friends, pool time, and fireworks on the beach. It was a beautiful day and SO nice to get to relax and have some quality friend time!

 

The Food Company

We celebrated St. Patrick’s Day day by really not celebrating at all and going to dinner with our good friend Caitlin. We tried The Food Company for dinner for the first time and it was amazing!

Over Easy

We’ve had brunch a couple times over the last few weeks at Over Easy in Kailua. We shared a bunch of stuff so we could try a few things. Everything was delicious!

Mt. Olomana

A few weekends ago, Josh and I hiked the first peak of three peaks. For me, this was the second time hiking it. It was a beautiful day, not windy and clear enough to see Maui, Lanai and Molokai. Such a great hike!
