This is the place if you're interested in Asian groceries and goodies. Also, their dollar section has lots of intriguing items for the home.

Love their veggie sandwich on a French roll and their tapioca pudding!

Went to the Alley Restaurant at Aiea Bowl for early dinner. We ordered the suppa garlic shrimp. Four shrimp total. OK, but far from mind-blowing. My husband is a very good local style cook and we both agreed this was not worth the money. Perhaps now they have fine-tuned their menu. Will give it one more try before saying it's a no-go.

Went to Hy's for the first time in about 18 years for a birthday dinner. Yes, it has the old-style dark woods and dim lights. Be that as it may, you are treated like royalty from the moment you enter. James, our waiter, was attentive and even brought extra plates so we could share the escargot. What's so amazing about that? We didn't ask for extra plates. They appeared with the appetizer. I love it when a waiter/waitress anticipates their customer's needs. Speaking of escargot, they are prepared out of shell using drawn butter, garlic and blue cheese. Oh, so rich, but delicious beyond belief! My vodka martini was powerful and hit the spot. I followed it with a vodka and seven up, which was equally strong. The point is, they don't skimp on the liquor. When you're paying top dollar, this is to be appreciated. Just for fun, my son timed the support staff to see how long it took for them to refill his water glass: 36 seconds. You're lucky in most restaurants to get a glass of water, period. God forbid that you expect it to be refilled! Kirby, the busboy attending to our table, kept the fresh bread coming until we begged him to stop. I have to give a disclaimer here, Kirby does know my husband, so I imagine that might prompt a bit more attention. I had the scallops, which I found adequate. I am being honest in my review. If I go to Hy's again, I think I would rather try the Sicilian scampi versus the Thai style scallops. My husband enjoyed his medium rare Cajun style prime rib. We took some home and had it sliced thin with eggs for breakfast this morning. :-) At the end of our meal, they took our picture and brought two slices of cheesecake for my daughter-in-law and me. We were both celebrating our birthdays. Again, we didn't ask, and it was complimentary. It was so good! The crust had chopped nuts, which I adore. We were given our picture on the way out the door which will be a nice remembrance of our birthday celebration. The wait staff has been there forever. The longest employed staff member has been at Hy's for 34 years. Most of them have been there at least 20 years. They have their service game plan down to a SCIENCE! And I have been to some very nice fine-dining restaurants. If you don't mind spending some serious money to have a most enjoyable dinner, you will be glad you went to Hy's.

I know that they probably no longer make potato pierogis at the Polish Home. However, as a teenager, we would walk about a half a mile to get about six of these DELICIOUS treats for dinner. Light, tasty, filled with home made potatoes, onions and cooked with butter. OMG were they the best. I wonder if anyone else remembers these delights?
