Hawaii Mom Blog: Lunch at The Street, A Michael Mina Social House

Lunch at The Street, A Michael Mina Social House

My hubby and I had dined at The Street, a Michael Mina Social House when it first opened, and we were not impressed. But I'm all for second chances, so when Gem and I were deciding on a place for our next lunch date, I suggested The Street, since Gem had never dined there before, and I wanted to give it another try.  

The Street is a conglomeration of dining concepts, each featuring a menu from different chefs.  Gem and I decided to try a few dishes from Little Lafa, which is Michael Mina's own concept. 

We decided to dine family style so that we could try a few dishes on the menu.  Best decision ever!

The Falafel Tots were unfamiliar to the both of us but we tried it anyways.  

It was ok, but the highlight of our experience was definitely the Yemenite Short Rib Lafa! Full of tender short rib beef and colorful veggies, it was heaven on a plate. And since it came with two lafas, it was perfect for sharing.  

We just had to try the za'atar fries since we both love fries.  We requested it with the sauce on the side, although I'm sure they are best when the sauce is drizzled all over. 

One of the main reasons for selecting The Street is so that we could try Michelle Carr's shave ice at Aloha Ice.  

I used to have this preconceived notion that no shave ice is worth $9.99, but Aloha Ice proved me wrong. Their Strawberry Hibiscus shave ice is amazing. 

Things to know before you go:
1) Show your local ID for a Kama'aina discount
2) Members of the military with CAC cards get 50% off
2) Purchase $10 or more for validated parking (first hour is free!)
3) Aloha Ice opens at 12 pm
