looks delicious! can't wait to see the other photos!


I don't know about anyone else, but I'm a little disappointed that my favorite Hawaii food blog has sorta lost its roots. I read this blog every day to know about Hawaii eats, but now it seems it's taken a pretentious air and has decided to blog about food everywhere else BUT. Yeah, I know there was a post several months back about "losing my appetite" but with the semi-comeback of recent blogs from abroad, I'm not so sure I'm interested any longer. I'm really hoping you get back to making this a blog about Hawaii grindz once again.

Hey! You're in our neck of the woods!

Our meal at Manresa was hands down the best meal we have ever had. But it is a very difficult place to get a good picture.

great pictures. manresa is one of my favorite restaurants> i left san francisco before ubuntu opened but i have enjoyed chef jeremy fox's/ david kinch food many times prior. can't wait to check it out. if u are ever in new york< please let me know.
are u in the industry or do you just enjoy eating michelin stars? maybe you can dine at per se soon.


So much to eat, so little time.


Those are excellent pictures. May I ask what you do to make them so "clean"? I actually ended up eating at Manresa a month or so before you did. It was one of the best meals I've ever had.


If you loved Cynthia's vegetables so much, your sentence might read more clearly if you'd said, "And BECAUSE (not 'while') the vegetables were crisp and definitely at their peak, I would have enjoyed more vegetables throughout the various courses."

"While" qualifies the vegetables in a disclaiming way. It is normally followed in this context by something apologetic. Clearly that is not the case with what Cynthia harvests for the restaurant, yes?

    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.

  • Dscu40r
    Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-U40

    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.
