You'd never know it but something special, delicious and hard to find has made it's way to Kalihi Valley. Authentic Mexican food is now just a few minutes away from my house! What a blessing. I must have done something good in another life to be surrounded by the best in poke (Alicia's), Hawaiian food (Helena's), Shave Ice (Shimazu Store), Garlic Chicken (Sugoi), LauLau (Young's) and more -- now add to the list an oh so flavorful, fresh, authentic, LA-style Mexican eatery that serves up delightful tacos, burritos, quesadillas and more. Welcome Alejandro's to my hood!
What once started on the street corner in Waikiki, during the late night hours, is now open Thursday - Saturday 12pm-8pm ONLY. The place is small, hot and simple, but the food is outstanding and it's only 5 minutes away from my casa. Alejandros can still be found during the overnights (1am-4:30am on Kuhio and Nohonani) near Playbar in Waikiki if you craving a tasty taco at 1am, but for us working and family folk we can stop here for lunch or dinner on those select nights and really enjoy! Here's a look at what I got to sample the other day.
A newly renovated restaurant nestled in Waikiki offers delectable tapas, treats, lunch, dinner and a $12.95 ($6.95 for children) breakfast buffet.
Wood & Bucket is a gorgeous new restaurant. I am going to call it new, even though it's not really, as it was recently renovated and opened a while ago, but it's new to me and probably you too. Located on Kanekapolei and Ala Wai Boulevard it's literally on the outskirts of Waikiki in the Waikiki Sand Villa Hotel. This charming boutique hotel is beautiful with simple elegant and tropics touches. The restaurant is located immediately to your right once you enter past the free valet. They serve breakfast from 6am-10am and yes, it's only $12.95. You won't find eggs benedict or French crepes, but there's a good amount of staple dishes like waffles or french toast, omelette station and etc. Here is a look at the grub.
The buffet also include fruit juices and coffee. For the price of one entree at any eatery around you can enjoy a nice peaceful buffet. The quality is good, the atmosphere is delightful and the food is tasty and filling. I figured I would give it a try since it was so cheap and it filled me up all day, but I didn't feel like I overate.
