We were wandering from little shop to little shop (there are no other types), in Hanapepe, Kauai, and found ourselves in Aloha Spice Company’s shop. All sorts of spice mixes, rubs, and specific salts. Hidden amongst it all was this book about tea. Lo & behold, what should grace its cover but Tea Eggs! Just seeing it made me start to feel the cooking urge, to start back at things in the kitchen.
We’ve been eating fish, rice & fruit, and are doing well on it. Eating out occasionally, picking and choosing our food spots carefully. New to the north coast is Sushi Girl, literally a hole-in-the-wall in Wainiha, super clean & deliciously fresh. We miss Red Hot Mamas (a fabulous burrito spot that used to be in the same place), but will look forward to its food truck when it hits the road.
Had a late lunch today at Tortilla Republic at the Shops at Kukui’ula in Poipu. I had 3 perfectly sized fresh ahi tortillas with fresh mango salsa & chipotle mayo. We had a salsa sampler for starters.
We headed out to the maikai side of the restaurant to view the setting sun. A beautiful end to a great day!
