Hawaii Mom Blog: 12th Ave Grill & DeliCafe

12th Ave Grill & DeliCafe

As I have been a big fan of restaurants with outdoor dining, when my friend asked where we should meet for a quick workday lunch, I suggested 12th  Ave Grill & DeliCafe in Kaimuki.

I called weeks in advance to make a reservation for an outside table, but as you can see, there were a lot of tables available for outdoor dining. Indoor dining was also an option, but we preferred to eat outdoors, even though it was a bit windy.

After placing our orders inside at the counter, we selected our table and waited for our food to be delivered to us. My friend's side salad came out first.  It looked fresh and just the right size to compliment his sandwich.

My house fries came out next - they were delicious! I just love hand-cut shoestring fries, and the ketchup is definitely not from a bottle. It was hard to stop myself from eating the entire plate before my sandwich arrived.

Luckily my 12th Ave B.L.T arrived and I was excited to take my first bite. This sandwich is made with butter poached Kona raised Maine Lobster, avocado-roasted tomato-basil-garlic relish on house-made bacon bread. Doesn't it sound wonderful? It tasted even better than it sounds!

There was no shortage of lobster in this sandwich, and the creamy avocado relish complimented the lobster well.  I wasn't a huge fan of the bread, but I would still order this sandwich again because of the lobster and avocado relish. 

My friend enjoyed his Garlic-Lime & Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich. I was impressed with the size of the fried chicken it came with.

There are many other items on the menu that I want to try (Pastrami French Toast, Maui Cattle Co. Burger, Meat Loaf Melt, Tamarind Braised Short Ribs, and the house-made Tiramisu), therefore I'll definitely be back!!
