I told you that I eat ANYTHING now, with my “Nutri Ninja” 2015 healthy lifestyle regimen. As in anything other than just fruits and vegetables in a smoothie, which makes up about up to 80% of my diet. And I’m still maintaining a slow yet steady weight loss, thanks also of course to regular exercise.
That said, first up, we have a plate of Pinakbet and Pork Adobo from Waipa-HOO! Nah, just kidding, not from Filipino-Ville, but from Naty’s Kitchen Filipino Food in Maunakea Market in downtown Chinatown, Honolulu. And whoo, is dat bug-err masarap-sarap! The Pinakbet has just the right amount of bitterness-to-savory ratio, and the pork adobo has just the right amount of vinegar-to-shoyu ratio that’s well-permeated into the tender large cubes of fatty-good pork shoulder cuts, with a pronounced accent of peppercorn and bay leaf that you can really taste. Dees bug-err is win-errr, like dutt!
Aloha Tofu Town Spicy Aloha Shrimp Tofu
Next up, we have Aloha Tofu Town‘s Spicy Aloha Tofu Shrimp with Chili Sauce. It’s served over a bed of perfect white rice, along with a side of potato salad and a tossed green salad with Minato’s most excellent Pineapple Dressing, giving the salad a deliciously zesty acidic ‘n sweet twang. The spicy tomato-like sauce is kinda’ weird, which I’m guessing is “Japanese”, but still good. It’s kinda’ spicy, but not so much that you’re running for the water glass. While the combination of the plump ‘n tender shrimp tails, firm tofu and al dente long beans go really well together. And their delicately-textured Potato Salad is the bomb-de-de-bomb-bomb-de-bomb!
Summing it up, 4 SPAM Musubi for Naty’s Pinakbet and Pork Adobo, as well as as Aloha Tofu Town‘s Spicy Aloha Shrimp Tofu.
