I love the look of that pattie! The chilli in the dog looks very dark... nice amount of mustard in it too. If your interested, some desc and pics of aussie burgers on my recent post here I thought it was a bit of a coincidence doing burgers on the same day or just about!


M-m-m-m...looks real ono to me Reid! Funny how my arteries just hardened up when I stared at the monitor. Takes me back to the old W&M days where the buns were toasted on the grill and had that extra "crunch" to it!


Lunch time!!!! Oh wait, I'm in LA, not Hawaii...wahhh =(


Oh my aching heart! LOL Everything looks so good, but the burger patty looks a little bit too dark. I could go for the chili dog...;9

I think the burger looks so dark due to the marinade.

H & T is very popular at WWW Mall. It's usually very full on weekends and very busy. I've eaten there a couple of times and it's been OK. It probably got busier when McDonalds closed. Wonder how it will do once Ruby Tuesdays, IHOP & Farrells opens this year...some major competition... :)


Hi Rachel,

The dark coloring of the patty is due to the teriyaki sauce they use to marinade it. It's quite good.

The topping on the chili dog is actually cheese (not mustard), although I do it eat with mustard too. =)

BTW...I do find it interesting that we ate almost the same things too!

Hi Clinton,

Did you have to remind me about W&M? *sigh* These were OK, but nowhere near as good as W&M. I think I need a fix soon. And yes, I do like it when the bun is lightly toasted.


LOL! But there are so many other things you can eat there, right?

Hi Milgwimper,

The burger is dark because it's marinated with teriyaki sauce. You should try making burgers this way sometime, they are my favorites.

BTW...have you ever had a kim chee burger? It's delicious!


You're absolutely correct! =)

Hi ww eater,

Welcome to the blog!

H & T is definitely popular because everytime I'm in there, there's either a line or the tables are all occupied. I have to agree with you about the food being just "OK".

I too wonder what's going to happen when IHOP and Farrell's open up later on. I actually have been trying to visit Windward Mall more just so that I won't miss the opening of Farrell's. Someone bet me that I couldn't eat a whole zoo sundae. I'm definitely going to die trying!


Hi Reid - Fries with teri sauce? That does sound interesting; I like gravy fries; well any carb will do, actually. I'm sure you can't wait for Farrell's to open up!


I think they'll be ok. IHOP is more of a breakfast place and Farrells is more of a place to go for a party--and eat all that ice cream (I still remember the Farrell's at Kahala Mall). IHOP and Farrell's can't beat H & T's price.



Teriyaki sauce on the burgers is one of my favs too, although I haven't had that in awhile. Hmmm
Yes, kimchi burgers Oh yum... Yes I love kimchi burgers. There was a Korean fast food place here that used to sell them. They were good, but usually I make them myself now mainly because my Mom keeps giving me gallon jars of kimch every month. I have to eat them all somehow! :) So usually I have to think of interesting ways of eating kimchi besides the normal Korean dishes. I have a gallon and a 1/2 to use before March. ;P


Hi Kirk,

The teri fries are good if you eat them hot. The sauce starts to gel as it cools. I'm sure you know what that's like.

And yes, I can't wait for Farrell's. Almost feel like I want to have a birthday party there! =D


You're right about the prices, but I'm sure that H & T will lose some business to both places. There's also going to be a Ruby Tuesday opening up there as well.

Hi Milgwimper,

I love kimchee burgers. Kimchee is also good on tuna fish sandwiches. If you haven't tried that yet, you should!

    Most of the newer photos on this site are being taken by this camera. I'm still learning how to use it, but I think the photos it takes are amazing. Though the lens I use often varies, many of the photos on this site are taken with a Canon EF 35mm f2.0 lens.

    A majority of the photos on this site were shot using this little camera. It was compact and discreet -- excellent for taking photos under most conditions. Sadly, it has recently died.
