Side Street for Dinner

Jason wanted the pan-fried island pork chops (crispy on da’ outside, juicy on da’ inside, as they say it).

But, I wanted the furikake crusted Ahi fish steak too (fried?!).

To wash it all down, house special, Rogue brewed beer.

We were too excited and ordered WAY too much food. We barely finished it. Each dish was massive and the fried rice alone could have fed the both of us.

Every single table ordered the fried rice and pork chops. I kid you not.

The fried rice was quite good. I kept eating that dish, savoring the saltiness. Pork chops, mediocre. It was what I expected. The Ahi fish was a major disappointment. I expected a crust with rare fresh fish in the center. Nope. Fried and cooked all the way through.

Heavy food. Not exactly what I expected, but we quickly discovered Side Street Inn is a great place for big groups to share the big portions. We were probably the only 2-person table there!

Quick walk along the downtown Waikiki shopping strip—Chanel, Louis, Hermes and even Apple—called our names. Surprisingly, even with the low 4.25% sales tax, we walked out empty handed.

We ended up at good ‘ol Margaritaville for a quick nightcap. No piña colada yet.
