I have been wanting to try The Social Honolulu Eatery & Bar for a while now. I have this thing about trying uni pasta at various restaurants, I don’t know what the deal is because when I eat it…I don’t even love it. I just want to love it so I always try it. Also, like I mentioned in a previous post, I’m not big on bars but we came here so early that we were one of the only customers in the place. The waiter was good because he was super chill and not in our face about anything. Here is what we had!
Maui Mule • $10.00
pau maui vodka, passion fruit puree and ginger beer
This was my drink and it was gooood. I love myself a good mule drink, Maui style? I’m there.
Truffle Parmesan Fries (Happy Hour) • $7.00
fries tossed in truffle oil, parmesan cheese and house seasoning
Oh yum. These fries were great, anything tossed in truffle oil is good in my book. I really enjoyed this.
Fried Calamari • $7.00
crispy fried calamari sticks served with cocktail sauce
Okay, we over-ordered. By this point, I wanted to save room for my pasta. What you see is right, little baby calamari served up on skewers. Was good! Just shouldn’t have gotten two appetizers…
Fried Pork Chops • $18.00
breaded and deep fried pork shops topped with sauteed mushrooms and onions
Not my dish but it seemed to be enjoyed!
Uni Mentaiko Pasta • $16.00
our signature pasta made with spaghetti, uni, and mentaiko cream sauce topped with ikura and kizami nori
This was a good pasta! I love both uni and mentaiko….and the ikura was a nice touch! Can’t really taste the uni, it’s mostly melted into the sauce. I enjoyed it but I think as an entree, it’s just too rich on it’s own. Maybe it’s a good entree to order and share….order a protein on the side to share too…something to vary things up!
