GIOVANNI'S SHRIMP COOKED AT HOME

GIOVANNI'S SHRIMP
DINNER AT HOME

My Wife has perfected the World Famous Giovanni's Shrimp Truck recipe and we now cook our version at home.  Pretty much the same great taste you get at the truck in Kahuku.  Only thing missing is the Hot Sauce.  Not to worry.  When we visit the original truck on the North Shore, I tip the cashier big and request extra hot sauce.  Always come home with enough for many servings of shrimp.  In my mind you just gotta have the original Giovanni's Hot Sauce to make this dish perfect.

MACHETE'S MEAN SANDWICHES

MACHETE'S MEAN SANDWICHES

HOURS:  

Ordered the Machete Sandwich ($12.50) and was not too impressed. I think it is the bread, seasoning and dressing that can make a sandwich great.  This sandwich had none of them.  I asked a co-worker what he thought of his sandwich and he said "taste like something I could make at home".  I agree.  While the meats were good there was nothing to give this sandwich flavor.  I ordered the sandwich with the works and expected onion, lettuce, tomato and vinaigrette.  There was little or nothing in the sandwich.  Don't think I tasted any onion, tomato, oregano and definitely no vinaigrette.  I ate half and gave the other half away.  Did not even want to take it home and eat it later.

BREAD WAS NOT WHAT I EXPECTED
WHERE IS THE TOMATO, ONION AND VINAIGRETTE?
GOOD AMOUNT OF MEAT BUT THIS SANDWICH HAS ZERO FLAVOR

Ono Korean BBQ is one of my favorite Korean BBQ's on Oahu.  Always get the Spicy Chicken and Spicy Pork Combination with four vegetables.  There is enough food here for lunch and dinner for me and my family.  I have never finished an entire plate of Ono's and love taking the leftovers home to the family.

Another enjoyable day at Mid Pacific Country Club in Lanikai.  Enjoyed a great lunch and a few beers and then proceeded to tee it up only to find out my left arm was injured.  After a few holes I could not swing the club.  Big bummer and end of my golf game for awhile.

Our golf group stopped into Patricio's Mexican Taqueria on the way to the Kona Airport.  Ordered at the counter, grabbed a cold beer and enjoyed some tacos.  I had three Tacos with Beans and Rice ($13.25).  Carne Asada Carnitas and Chicken.  Ordered them crunchy. Not bad.  Liked the Salsa Bar and would like to come back here again and try a few more menu items.

KOHANAIKI GOLF RESORT - KONA, HAWAII

KOHANAIKI PRIVATE CLUB COMMUNITY

It is a pure joy to play Kohanaiki.  A golfers dream and unforgettable experience.  The staff here is professional, friendly and dedicated to the highest level of customer service.  The service coupled with the world class facilities and golf are enough to make this one of my favorite golf courses ever.  However, Kohanaiki takes it to another level with their comfort stations which are stocked with an incredible variety of food, snacks and beverages.  Everything from ice cream to margaritas.  My faves are the frozen grapes, crab salad, peanut butter cups, wine and ice cold beer.

Kukio could just be the best golf course in Hawaii.  Truly a beautiful course that I thoroughly love to play.  Problem is this course is almost impossible to get on.  It is ultra exclusive and private with mega wealthy members who keep this gem to themselves.  Don't blame them.  Just blessed to be able to play Kukio for a second time.  This time I found myself just looking around and saying "wow this is beautiful".  I took it all in on every hole.  Every comfort station too.  The Shrimp Cocktail were delicious and the Frozen Bananas hit the spot on a warm summer afternoon.  This is one of the best golf experiences in all Hawaii.  If you can get on you will never forget it.
