I figured I would take a break, get healthy, and come back with an appetite and the metabolism to back it up. Unfortunately it's not working and I'm still getting fatter so you know what? Screw it. Let's just be fat and happy.
This review is of a place we went to in Hawaii called Aloha Mixed Plate. During our honeymoon we went to all sorts of expensive restaurants in Maui but this small inexpensive place was my favorite. Each meal only cost about $8 and it was right by the beach!
On our trip I discovered something called Loco Moco. It's just a fried egg and hamburger pattie on top of rice covered with brown gravy. It was amazing. I know it sounds simple and doesn't look very appetizing but it was amazing. I tried making it at home and it just wasn't the same. It's probably because I used crappy Good Value Walmart brand ingredients.
Kalua Pork and Laulau
My next favorite meal was the Kalua Pork and Laulau. I had Kalua Pork at a couple other restaurants but Aloha Mixed Plate had the best. The Laulau was tender and juicy with a hint of banana leaf flavor that really made the meat perfect.
Mark and Loco Moco
My wife got the Teriyaki Burger which confused me since we were in Hawaii and we could probably picked one up at any Carl's Jr. on the mainland. It definitely wasn't as good as my meals.
Mmm... Coconut shrimp. These were so light and crispy and came with the perfect sweet and tangy dipping sauce.
If you're ever in Maui you've got to go to Aloha Mixed Plate! Save yourself $50 and eat here instead of that expensive restaurant. Trust me!
I promise I'll blog more now that I've decided that being fat is ok.
Be Fat! Be Happy!
