So happy my Wife wanted to have lunch at the Vintage Cave Cafe after doing a little shopping at 
Ala Moana Center.  We enjoyed a delicious $90 lunch and it was free plus we got paid another $110 to come back and eat again.  Sounds to good to be true but it is.  They have this new game here called the Gacha Magic Fair.  At bit confusing at first but after we understood it was pretty fun.  There are these vending machines that look like giant Gum Ball machines around the restaurant.  If you purchase a token for $20 you can put it into the machine.  The minimum you will win from the machine is $20 in chips so you really cannot lose.  The chips are good to pay your bill now or during another visit to the restaurant.  I put in my first $20 token and received a $20 voucher.  Hmm I thought if I cannot lose then lets try it again.  Second time I received a $40 voucher.  Wow up $20 bucks so basically $20 off our bill.  We enjoyed our lunch with a Lobster and Avocado Salad first.  It was absolutely delicious and the lobster was chilled and sweet.  Great salad but it would be better if it came with some lettuce and dressing on the bottom.  Then it would really be a meal.  I loved it.  I saw that the "VC" Pasta Special was fresh pasta with a Mushroom Cream Sauce topped with Truffles.  I just had to try this and WOW it was a Truffle wonder.  The Pasta was delicious and full of the flavor of Truffles.  I was in a Truffle coma and loving it.  This is a lot of flavor and I ended up sharing the dish with my Wife who had ordered the Pasta Special with Coffee and Dessert for $18.  Her Pasta was Ravioli and it was good but could not compare to the Pasta with Truffles.  We agreed we would come back again and split the Truffle Pasta and order another entree.  Now here is where it got fun.  I told my Wife to get another $20 token because our bill was $90 and we had $60 in vouchers to pay.  We cannot lose I told her.  At a minimum we will get our $20 back.  She did and her voucher was for $200!  That means we ended up with $260 in vouchers with an $90 bill.  The management and staff congratulated us, took a photo and cheered when we went to the front counter.  They also gave us $110 in chips to use when we return.  The Manager also told us the new game will include higher value vouchers that can go up to $10,000.  Hey, the food and service here was excellent even without the game.  We will be back soon to spend our $110 and try our luck again.
