Visit Boston: Legal Sea Foods

Legal Sea Foods is one of the most popular chain restaurants in Boston.  We dined there two years ago, and even though we try to visit new places whenever we travel, we knew we would end up with a satisfying meal, so we dined there again - this time at the Copley Place location.

Turns out - we ended up ordering nearly the same things as our first visit.
Hot Lump Crab Dip
Although my Hot Lump Crab Dip didn't come out first - in fact it came out last, after everyone was just about done with lunch, I still enjoyed it.  The dip came out bubbling hot, and I just loved the creaminess!
Lobster Bisque
I thought the Lobster Bisque was good, but not as good as one that I had tried a few days earlier at a different restaurant.
Crabmeat Roll
 A kids menu is available.
Cheese Ravioli with Red Sauce

Macaroni & Cheese
Despite my dip being "forgotten," service was really great, and we were satisfied with our meals.

Visit Hilo: Cronies Bar & Grill

I went to Cronies Bar & Grill for the first time yesterday. 

Swiss & Mushroom Burger

Turkey Club Sandwich
I ordered a Turkey Club Sandwich.  I had to get a side of tots!

The Club Sandwich was good - stuffed with turkey, ham, bacon, and veggies (I didn't care for the sprouts).

This restaurant in Downtown Hilo was filled with lots of tourists during lunch, but I hear that the local crowd fills it up during the nights.

I definitely want to go back to try the Mauna Loa Gravy Cheese tots!

Aloha Maui Day Trip: Lineage

Lineage is one of my favorite restaurants on Maui, and we just had to stop there, especially since @konaish and @deniset73 hadn't visited yet.

Chef MiJin Kang Toride is the new Chef de Cuisine, but do not worry - the food remains familiar and welcoming, while still being innovative. 

We sat at the bar and ordered a few must-trys:

Chicharon
Shots of chili pepper water and chicharon - addicting!

Kim Chee Dip
I think I ate nearly all of this by myself!
Poi Mochi
The Poi Mochi is a fave amongst many!
Kalbi Ribeye Cap
The Kabli Ribeye Cap was a special of the day.  The meat was so tender and flavorful.  Loved it!
"Fish, Poi, & Rice"
This dish is a play on the typical "fish, poi, and rice."

Lots of great things are in store for Lineage as they enter this new chapter.  I'm always excited to see what new dishes Lineage has to offer (and to also drink that chili pepper water!).

Last call for Jimbo Restaurant


Jimbo Restaurant, known for their homemade udon noodles and other authentic Japanese dishes, will serve it's last bowls of udon on Thursday, March 26, 2020. 

Jimbo Restaurant stated on their Facebook page that they are currently looking for a new location, so keep following them on Facebook and Instagram for updates.



My friends and I enjoyed one last meal at Jimbo, and it was as good as it has always been for the past 25 years.




They use high quality ingredients, and NO MSG.


They even offer udon made out of Moringa leaves, which are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. 



One of their best sellers is the curry rice, which comes with your choice of protein.



Gotta have Japanese curry with pork katsu!

Lunch at beachhouse at the moana

After our spa day, we went to have lunch at beachhouse at the moana.

Afternoon tea is offered, but we all opted to order off the menu.

Lobster Corn Chowder
The Lobster Corn Chowder was amazing!  Full of huge chunks of lobster and topped with truffle oil, this chowder was the best I've had on island.

Micro Chopped Grilled Chicken Sandwich
The Micro Chopped Grilled Chicken Sandwich was a generous portion of greens, bacon, edamame, long beans, chicken, and heart of palm.
Lobster Benedict

Lobster Roll

Moana Surfrider Burger

Tropical S'mores
I had a bite of the Tropical S'mores, and I thought it was good!

I definitely want to return for more of that chowder.

Aloha Maui Day Trip: Ferraro's Bar e Ristorante

During our Aloha Maui Day Trip, we needed a brief respite from eating our way through Maui, so we stopped at the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea for drinks at Ferraro's Bar e Ristorante.

Elderflower Fizz

Green Smoothie

I initially had my eye on the Elderflower Fizz, but I opted to go the healthier route and get a Green Smoothie (since I was eating non-stop all morning). 

I loved the smoothie.  It was refreshing, made of kale and spinach, with just enough sweetness from bananas and apples.  It was finished off with ginseng and ginger. 

Service was great, as expected at any Four Seasons establishment.

Ferraro's was definitely a great spot to unwind before continuing on our eating adventure on Maui!
