Mixed Plate Friday

Bobo Chicken with Red Chili and Mixed Vegetable Skewers | $24.99

Just wanted to share a new dish I tried at Chengdu Taste, not new for their menu just new for me. It was pretty good. It’s a pure spectacle to see each piece of meat or vegetable on a skewer. It comes with plenty of that “soup” but unless you like burn a hole in your tummy, I wouldn’t eat it over rice. I tried, I couldn’t hack it. Good dish though! Got a good mixture of vegetables, chicken and quail eggs.

Poke Nachos | $17.95

Aloha Cones started offering up Poke Nachos so I treated my brothers to lunch there. Gotta support local but also look at the price. LOL, I’m a broken record about price. What I will say is…they give a good portion and I am pretty sure they fry the chips fresh when you order it. They really enjoyed the dish and I guess this is the running price for poke now so I guess I would recommend!

Guava & Cream Pie ($2.19 for 1 | $3.19 for 2)

Hawaii McDonald’s has a limited time Guava & Cream Pie and it was all over social media so of course I had to try. The day I wanted to try it, all the locations close to me were sold out. I think they make a batch for the day and when they’re out, they’re out. So I went to a location and sent my brother in to buy it. I’ve had bad luck with online ordering sometimes and I didn’t want to order it online and then get there and get told no more. Well instructions were misunderstood and he picked up 4 pies instead of the 2 I wanted. Ha! Anyway, so how was it? Pretty good. Like a guava cheesecake! And I may be in the minority on this but I actually like baked pies, more so than fried pies.

    i just tried the McD’s pie too because of all the hype. It was kinda sweet. Yes, 3 places were sold out but since I was at Manoa Mktplace, I just popped into McD there and they had it! Counterperson said they just got a delivery.

      Ha! I’m glad you were able to get it to try! I had one leftover in the fridge and tossed it in the microwave and actually liked it better that way. I’d probably get it again but not go out of my way to get it again!

  2. I used to like McDonald’s oatmeal raisin cookies – so crispy and chewy and cheap! But no more any more. I’ll pass on their pie since it sounds too sweet for me.

    btw, did you know that Starbucks has BOGO going on now if you have their app? I tried to get it yesterday but didn’t know my user name and password and the gal wasn’t too kind to me. Ah well. Save money, lol.

      Oh Aunty! I saw your tip about BOGO starbucks…but never got to use it. But how awful the girl wasn’t willing to help you. Customer service nowadays is pretty bad yeah? And! I would have loved to get oatmeal raisin cookies from McD. I still like the ones from Subway!
