Wild Horses Couldn't Drag Me - Worst of the Worst

I've had good meals at Nice Day, but I can see that restaurant as hit or miss. They are not the cleanest restaurant and what you order can really make a difference.

Anniversary in Hawaii

Dim Sum
Lots of good places, I personally like Fook Lam. If you go, make sure to order the custard bao and eat it while it's still warm. When friends visit from the mainland, if they are turned off by how dirty Chinatown can be, Royal Garden at Ala Moana is a nice, clean, and safe choice.

Chinese:
Pa-ke's is the best Chinese restaurant in Kaneohe. I live in Honoulu and enjoy going to Kirin restaurant and Asia Manoa. Little Village and Happy Day are also solid choices.

Korean:
Don't go to Ah Lang. The food there is good, but that place is known as "The Angry Korean Lady" place, because there is only one woman who both cooks the food and waits on the tables. If you bring a large party there, you will wait forever. Choi's Garden is the most authentic general Korean restaurant I can think of. Gina's is good, but it's a local plate lunch takeout kinda place.

Japanese:
If you guys like beer, you might want to check out Shirokiya department store at Ala Moana Shopping center. They have a Beer Garden with a lot of different little Japanese food stalls. The food is mediocre, but you can get $1 beer and the kids can run around.

I like Gyotaku for Japanese. I'm also a fan of Ichiriki for nabe.

ugh... too many restaurants to list, I'll edit this post later.

Local, Hawaiian Food (in Las Vegas)

If you haven't been to Vegas, you'll be amazed at how local the California Hotel and Casino is (aka "The Cal"). I think I remember hearing something like a third of the staff are from Hawaii.

Anyway, they totally market themselves to people from Hawaii and as many have pointed out, they serve all kinds of local foods there. The oxtail soup was pretty good, but I think they only serve it at certain times.

Liliha Bakery to Grow

I can't wait til it opens. I drive down Nimitz to work every day. Now I'll finally have a breakfast place other than Zippy's to stop at!

My wife and I will be celebrating our 2nd anniversary in Vegas. We eat pretty much anything, but we're looking to avoid steakhouses. We like steak, but I want something more unique. On our last trip to Vegas we enjoyed meals at Scarpetta, Twist, and Sage.
