Hawaii Mom Blog: Aloha Hilo Day Trip Recap

Aloha Hilo Day Trip Recap

Back in October of last year, @konaish mentioned going to Hilo for the day to go to the Farmers Market, Two Ladies Kitchen, and Moon & Turtle.

The next month, she and I, along with @melissa808 and @deniset73 booked our tickets, and in January we had a 12-hour Aloha Hilo Day Trip.  We had just five things on our itinerary (the three places mentioned above, plus Kawamoto store and Restaurant Kenichi).

Our first stop was Kawamoto Store, because Melissa HAD to get Shrimp Tempura.

We then went to the Hilo Farmers Market to buy produce.

Melissa wanted shave ice, so we had some Kula Shave Ice, then walked to Two Ladies Kitchen for mochi, and stopped at Low International for Rainbow Bread and Cookies on the walk back.

We met our friend Sherrie for lunch at Restaurant Kenichi, then walked next door to George's Meat Market for beef jerky. 

We then made an impromptu stop at Hawaiian Licks for yummy vegan ice cream, and then decided to make another impromptu stop and visit our friend Adrian at Hilo Bay Cafe for my favorite (now off-menu) Kalbi Steak Fries.

We made a quick stop to see Rainbow Falls, bought more omiyage at Big Island Candies, then shopped at KTA for Oven Ready Deli Roll pork that Laurie said was really good.

We stopped at Makani's Magic Pineapple Shack for dessert-before-dinner, and ended the day with a fabulous meal at Moon & Turtle.

And we returned to the Hilo Airport with minutes to spare!

We hadn't planned on so many stops, but we managed to make it to fourteen stops.  Our Aloha Hilo Day Trip was a success!

I can't wait for our next adventure!
