HOURS:  Daily 10:30 AM - 2:00 PM / 5:30 PM - 9:30 PM

For the life of me I do not understand the raves and hype about The Pig and the Lady.  After several visits, I cannot seem to find any dish that resonates with me or my family.  On this visit we sampled a wide variety of dishes and we really did not like any of them.  Amazing that with seven people at the table almost all dishes were not finished.  I took the pasta home but never finished it.  Hey a lot of people love this restaurant so please try it for yourself.  I just call em as I eat em and this one does not do it for me.

SONY OPEN GOLF TOURNAMENT 2018

SONY OPEN GOLF TOURNAMENT
WAIALAE COUNTRY CLUB - 2018

Always love the Sony Open in January.  The event is held just minutes from my home so it is easy to crab a Uber and head down the hill to the course.  I always enjoy visiting the Sky Boxes and luckily was given some great hospitality suite passes.  The best of the best was the Hy's Steakhouse Sweet 16 Chalet on the 16th Hole.  They served up Prime Rib, Rack of Lamb, Lobster Tails, Shrimp, Salad and some incredible Sweet Potatoes.  Food was delicious!!!!

One of our favorite family dinners is Taguatelle or Papardelle with local Hamakua Mushrooms, Sage and Butter.  This dish is so easy to make and tastes absolutely delicious.

Absolutely love Sakura Terrace for lunch.  The entire family enjoys eating here and I think it is one of my Daughters favorite restaurants.  You cannot beat the amount of quality Japanese food you get here for $20.  Amazed how you can enjoy Poke, Tempura, Salad and a bowl of noodles for such a great price.  Always enjoy Sakura Terrace.  Click link below for previous post on Sakura Terrace;
