The fridge was empty Saturday morning. I noshed on frozen grapes with miso soup before heading out to restock on groceries.
As the sun was setting, we headed over to the Westside to pick up Maya for dinner at Islands. Abe and I have been taking our cousins here since they were little. Now they’re not itty bitty, but when we were invited in for a meal, I knew exactly who to bring!
We began with a plate of perfectly cooked fresh cut cheddar fries with scallions on top…
…I enjoyed two platefuls before the food arrived.
This restaurant chain is known for their burgers – Maya had a “Big Wave” with beef, Abe got “The Longboarder” on a veggie patty.
I ordered a salad – the “Kaanapali Kobb” without bacon or blue cheese…
…sprinkled additional “Secret Seasoning” on top – a blend of onion/garlic/salt + pepper.
We were all too full for dessert – walked off those amazing fries on Abbot Kinney before heading out to see Captain Phillips (which was also really good). Feels like we’re back on the Mainland this morning!
