Liliha Bakery is a great place for a casual diner meal. There is a new location on Nimitz Highway and I still have not tried that one out. In fact, I feel like it would be like a betrayal to the original location. Just a quick update on a recent meal I had there, it was a much better visit than past visits. The waitresses were very nice! Maybe they were happy from the glow of holidays and impending days off for New Years. I was actually getting agitated at another customer who kept raising his voice at the waitresses. I have no doubt the waitresses could hold their own though, hehe. Well, here’s the food!
Omelette with Portuguese Sausage – anything tastes good with Portuguese sausage
Meat Loaf Plate – I am like 99.9% sure the tomato salad really is served with just a big dab of mayonnaise. I still would like it if they could serve it with ranch dressing instead. Nice comfort food, I definitely enjoyed the simplicity of it all. And….who can resist their toasted rolls with their neon jelly??
Off topic but I finally got my COSTCO membership today especially for the fresh beets you mentioned and they didn’t have any. Vegetable worker looked at me like ‘what???’ I said BEETS, BEETS. lol Like saying it louder would make it more understandable. Their veg area was pretty empty though – do you still buy beets there? Or has it disappeared. BTW I go to the Waipio Gentry but if town has it, I’ll go there on my town trip – Mahalo.
I haven’t seen the beets lately but I got some last fall or so. It’s delish and easy to use in salads, so much better than canned ones.
Hi N! First of all, lol at the story. Secondly, sorry you couldn’t find the beets! Yes, I got it at the town Costco but like Foodluva said, I haven’t seen it recently. I’m wondering if it’s a seasonal offering. It’s also not located in the produce section, it was located in the cold cases with all the deli type items. I hope they stock it up soon! I will definitely post if I find it again.
