Aloha Plates (Seattle): Kahuku Prawns
Whenever we’re on a road trip that passes by the Seattle area, we tend to make a pit stop at Uwajimaya in Seattle. This way station to the weary is located in the International District of Seattle and is a Japanese grocery store that contains a food court as well as an attached book store.
On this particular road trip, I decided to try out Aloha Plates in the food court (I guess I was just missing Hawaii).
I ordered the Kahuku Prawns ($8.50) with rice and macaroni salad. By the looks of it, this is a fairly authentic plate of shrimp… right down to the macaroni salad. However, the tiger prawns lacked the garlicky flavour that I’m used to from Hawaii.
The prawns themselves were tasty enough but came up a little short if you compare them to the real thing.
