Chewies (Kits) – Southern Brunch

Okay, this is a bit of a late post… over a year late. I found this entry sitting at the bottom of a number of posts in my draft folder that I must have forgotten about. With that in mind, I’m sure the prices listed here have probably gone up since our last visit.

Steve’s Poké Bar (SFU): Build Your Own Bowls

As someone who’s always enjoyed the fresh and tasty poke that we’ve had in Hawaii, we were glad when the poke craze started to take root in Vancouver a couple of years ago. Steve’s Poké Bar, located in the SFU campus on top of Burnaby Mountain was one of the first dedicated poke places to open up in the area but it wasn’t until recently that we’ve tried them out.

Blue Canoe Waterfront: Raw and Fried Oysters

Usually, Pajo’s is our place to go when we head over to Steveston. However, when we’re looking for something other than fish & chips, we like to try some of the other restaurants along the Bayview Pier.

Pajo’s (Rocky Point Park): Halibut and Chips

At the eastern end of Burrard Inlet is a tiny municipality called Port Moody which is home to Rocky Point Park. This place is quite popular due to the spray park that’s extensively used during the summer months as well as the numerous trails, boat launch, and did I mention Pajo’s?

Uli’s Restaurant: Oysters, Mussels and Clams

It’s been years since I’ve been to White Rock and the only thing that I could remember was the big hills leading down to the beach and the fact that the actual “rock” which the city gets their name from is painted white.

Sansei Seafood (Seattle): Happy Hour

Sansei Seafood (and their sister restaurant DK Steakhouse) have been two of our favourite restaurants whenever we head over to Waikiki. As a matter of fact, we had just posted about our happy hour adventure at Sansei Seafood in Waikiki just recently. So when we heard that there was a Sansei in Seattle (just a hop, skip and a jump away from Vancouver), we knew that we wanted to try them out the next time we were in the area.

Gilligan’s Beach Shack (Hawaii 2017): Garlic Shrimp and Shoestring Fries

There’s always free entertainment in Waikiki… if you know where to look. Whether it’s the torch lighting ceremony, the shows at the International Marketplace, or the ever popular fireworks at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. Speaking of which, We were checking out the fireworks on our second-to-last day in Waikiki and decided to grab some food from Gilligan’s Beach Shack.

Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar (Hawaii 2017): Happy Hour

Sansei Seafood Restaurant and DK Steakhouse have been two of our favourite spots to dine in Waikiki since we first found them a few years ago. And although we were aiming to try a bunch of new restaurants, the pull of delicious food from Sansei Seafood couldn’t keep us away.

Coco Cove (Hawaii 2017): Island Ahi and Avocado Poke

After our snack at Shaka Poke, we headed out to do some shopping in Waikiki and wound up picking up some more poke to bring back to our hotel… this time at Coco Cove. I know that most of their poke is made from previously frozen seafood – but you can’t really beat the selection that they have available and it’s located right in the heart of Waikiki so it’s way more convenient than heading out to Ono Seafood.

Shaka Poke (Hawaii 2017): Basic Poke

One of the things that we were really looking forward to during our recent trip to Hawaii was all of the poke that we were going to eat. Sure, we had some favourite poke places to return to… but we also wanted to find some new poke places around Waikiki. That’s how we ended up at Shaka Poke

Five Star Shrimp (Hawaii 2017): Garlic Shrimp

The last time we were in Oahu, we were thrilled to find garlic shrimp smack dab in the heart of Waikiki at Pacific Garlic Shrimp, right outside the Pacific Beach Hotel, because it meant that we didn’t have to travel all the way to the North Shore for some tasty garlic shrimp. As it turned out in our visit this year, the Pacific Beach Hotel was undergoing renovations which meant no garlic shrimp in front of their location.

BYO Bowls (Hawaii 2017): Kilauea Poke Bowl

Grab life by the bowls! Or so goes the tag line of BYO Bowls. We found BYO Bowls on our return from the windward side of Oahu in the Hawaii Kai Towne Center. This fusion eatery’s concept is in having you Build Your Own… Bowl, that is.
