On the search for some good brunch… we headed a few blocks down from our hotel and landed at Cheeseburger Waikiki – Fun atmosphere, always filled with fun people and a great menu!!!
Seriously, we had SO many horror stories with the birds in Hawaii. Z hates birds and I’m starting to dislike them too now. They kept trying to steal our food by the pool and around the beach — Z gave them a tabasco drenched fry once and they came even more at force. One bird even stole our jar of macadamia nuts while we were in the pool swimming around *sad* And another one actually flew STRAIGHT into my leg from under the bar – totally made me flip my shizz.
Of course we had to order a famous Loco Moco, staple dish of Hawaii, and a side of Portuguese sausage… a cross between chorizo and a sweet chinese sausage :] YUM. Those are two poached eggs and a fried egg on the side to top the Loco Moco with.
A bed of Rice topped with our Beef Patty covered with Three Fried Eggs, Onions and Brown Gravy
Right after this picture was shot we put the three eggs on top and mixed it all together eating all the runny gooeiness with the burger patty and delicious and surprisingly light, gravy.
Egg White Omelette with Hash Browns and Whole Wheat Toast
I had tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, mushrooms, spinach and avocados in it.
And of course I had to get a Side of papaya.. SO SWEET!!!!
As much as I can find delicious sweet papaya on the Mainland, it just doesn’t compare to a random half of a small papaya in Hawaii *dies*
After a huge and full belly of delicious spicy Bloody Marys and a list of to-go-to places to play, eat and drink from our lovely waitress Krissy… we headed off to the beach for a few hours before we hit the spa…
We actually went back to Cheeseburger for a last meal… we had our last brunch in Hawaii there the day we were leaving back to NYC…
Of course we got a round of extra spicy Bloody Marys…
And of course I had to get another papaya….
I got another egg white Omelette…. this time with an additional pineapple.. I felt like the addition of the pineapple in it just really enhanced the savoriness of it… YUM!
…and Z got the Cheeseburger Scrambled…
Scrambled Eggs, Chopped Burger Patty, Colby Jack Cheese, Sauteed Onions, Diced Tomato.Served with Crispy Hash Browns. With Whole Wheat Toast…
This was really good.. I had been having tummyaches and wanted to avoid lots of cheese before a long flight, but I couldn’t help but take a few bites at the end – I need my cheese fix no matter what :]
We were greedy and our eyes were bigger than our stomachs…. well actually they weren’t cuz we pretty much cleaned off all of our plates.. but we got the short stack of Mac Nut pancakes..
Delicious Buttermilk Pancakes with Macadamia Nuts blended right in
They were SUPER fluffy….. and HUUUUGE.. really thick and dense. There were nuts all over it and inside, but it definitely needed the maple syrup to help cut the density of the pancakes. DELICIOUS though.. just need to share it with someone :]
And then it was bye bye :[
