Mixed Plate Friday

Oahu Noodle Factory | Wide Egg Noodles

Wanted to make a noodle dish at home and wanted fresh noodles so we went to Oahu Noodle Factory in Kalihi. It’s a great deal and while parking is non-existant (unless you know, let me know) – there is an spot to illegally stop your car in front of their shop and run in and out for. Well I did it…but I would always bring a buddy so I can drive around in a circle if needed. I was in luck today! This bag was about 2 lbs, they were charging $2.50 a pound when I was here.

I saw this online a few months ago and was super curious about it. Someone said Costco would start carrying it but it never came to our Costco so I got it when I saw it at Target. Kind of pricey but curiousity killed the cat. It’s pretty good, definitely can taste the coconut oil but just a hint of it. It tastes pretty okay! I’ve only had it on top of toast.

This Mazemen was on sale at Don Quijote for $3.99 so I gave it a shot. It comes with sauce packets, you cook and drain your noodles and mix it with the sauce packets! You have to add your own toppings. It was pretty good! I would get it again should the craving occur.

Acai Bowl | $12.25

One Saturday morning, I decided to head out to Hawaii Kai after my walk to go to Costco and Ross. Well I was a bit too early for Costco so we decided to head to a little cafe for a smoothie and acai bowl. Goes to show you how much I know, Island Brew Coffeehouse in Hawaii Kai is a totally swinging brunch place during the weekends and it was PACKED. It was raining this day so I just wanted for grab and GET OUT. They are also very pricey. Kind of pricey for this huh? I guess I should get used to it…inflation isn’t leaving anytime soon. Was it good? Sure. It’s an acai bowl. Anyway, I would probably avoid this place next time due to popularity and price.

Can I also just add, Ross Hawaii Kai and Costco Hawaii is the most chill and laid back. And HK Ross has all the cool stuff. Okay, have a good weekend folks!

    arghhhh, you’re another one who lets out the “secrets” of Costco HK and Ross!
    When I’m early, I like to browse City Mill and Ross. they’re open earlier than Costco so works out good.
    I wonder if they have the zumba workout on Saturday too. They have it Sunday morning so if you get there when class finishes, lots of participants rush the coffee shops.

    I only go to Hawaii Kai Costco. The Iwilei one is like so threatening – like people are nuts in the parking lot and then they are nuts inside with their shopping carts.

    Noodles look good! I love noodles, especially fat ones. I used to get mine from Lam’s Kitchen downtown – I think it was $1.50/lb but the price must have gone up. A couple of doors up there is a Vietnamese restaurant (forgot the name) that sells shrimp/garlic rice paper strips for $5 in a plastic tub. Nice snack or you can add it to soup at the end and it flavors the broth.

    Now I want to eat noodles!
