711 Eats

As a college student, I have been indulging in eating out way too much. But I’ll be damned if I have time to cook anything these days. So I’ve been getting very familiar with 711’s everchanging assortment of food. I am also super sick of fast food and can’t wait to start cooking again. I can’t wait for this semester to be over…haha. But I do enjoy taking the classes and my classmates are all pretty cool this semester! They look like they are all part of the same starting core group so I would like to continue taking classes with them if I can. You know what that means…

Anyway, quick post about some foods I tried recently.


141109-02I’m a sucker for meat in gravy. Loco Moco is one of my favorite dishes. How was this? Not bad. I don’t know what the obsession with putting fried rice in these dishes are. I mean there’s so much going on up top that I don’t see a point in putting a seasoned starch underneath. I’d rather have this with white rice.

141109-03I saw this and just had to try it. The pork hash looked a lot like spam which is a bit unnatural…haha. How was it? Well I can say that it was not memorable, not great but not bad. I rather just go for the spam musubi because it’s cheaper anyway.

Verde Kaimuki – Honolulu, HI

Verde Kaimuki has a pop-up at UH Manoa so we have a good go to place should one feel like Mexican food.  Now that they’ve closed down Taco Bell on-campus, I’ll bet this pop-up gets even more business! Well the cart is still limited to just burritos so we decided to give their actual shop a try. Before I came here, I thought it was a sit-down restaurant. It’s actually more of a take-out joint with seats on the side if you want to stay and eat. Let’s get to the food!
