Visit Hilo: White Guava Cafe

White Guava Cafe recently opened up in Hilo, so I decided to give it a try. I phoned in my order, only to discover the items I wanted to order were unavailable (the Shiitake Chili and Coconut Vegan Curry). Fortunately, there were several other items I was willing to try.

According to my chef friend who ate the cheeseburger, it was not cooked properly, and tasted too livery, although he did think the bun was good.  They were out of fries, so we ordered a side salad with Caesar dressing.  When I looked at the container, I thought we were mistakenly given liliko`i dressing, but it turned out the dressing "broke" and separated. 



The Fried Adobo Chicken did not taste like adobo to me, but I still liked it.  It was not as crispy as I hoped, and my friend thought it was too gingery, but I would give it another try.

The Korean Fried Tofu did not taste "Korean-style," but I thought it was good and I would try it a different style next time.

They offer daily specials not listed on the website (which I didn't know until I saw the specials when I went to pick up my food), so if you're calling in, make sure to ask.  

The food is pricey (most plates, like the fried tofu, are $15 for a regular), but it's a nice family restaurant, and I do hope to try the Shiitake Chili one day!
