    Thank you very much. I’m homesick about everything in Hawaii. I was born in Honolulu, but currently lived in La Mirada, CA. I left Hawaii since I was 9, but now I’m 20. I couldn’t find anywhere to shop, I couldn’t eat anywhere but some food from the market, and I’m not having ball about anything, anywhere in Cali. I miss Hawaii……… and when I grow up, I’ll move back to where I belong desparately. And again, thank you very much for show me everything! =…D

    Howzit Pomai!!! Cool website…loving all the pics and information you’re posting!!! Had no idea you were a foodie…I’ve spent countless hours watching the Food Network and Cooking Channel and other cooking programs and now consider myself as maybe a “Level 2” (of course, Level 10 would include the likes of Mario Batali, Morimoto-san, Roy Yamaguchi, et al.) foodie. I love cooking and trying to come up with new and unusual fusion dishes whenever my creative urges trumps my low-blood sugar moments where I’m merely cooking “…cause if I don’t eat NOW, I’m gonna pass out”. I applaud you on a great website and appreciate your insightful commentary. Rock on, brother!!!

    • September 4, 2012 at 5:03 pm

      Howzit Eddie! Always great to hear from an old neighbor and friend through the blog. Huge mahalo for all the kind words. Really appreciate it.

      I’d say before I recently was selected as a Food Judge for a cooking competition, I was probably about a “Level 3 Foodie”, where as now with that under my belt, I’m about Level 5, based purely on experience. There’s no way I can be a level 10 unless A:) I own a restaurant or food product (the latter of which I have a few ideas), and/or B:) I get my culinary degree. I don’t think a person can truly be called a chef unless you have a degree in culinary arts. I’m sure there’s “chefs” out there that will argue that point though. All in all, anyone who loves eating (practically everybody) are inherently “foodies” by nature.

      You definitely have an advantage cooking fusion having learned how to cook authentic Japanese food from your mom, J-san. I remember her cooking. Oishii-yo!!!

    We will never eat at Henry Louie restaurant.

    I called restaurant on 2/01/15 & spoke to a manager and explained how poor of a customer service we had & karaoke Lady who told me FUCK OFF on 1/31/15. Manager said that she would relay message to her boss and have him call me back…Still no call from Boss regarding this matter.

    I see why the service is poor and why employee feels drinkin at job after done with shift, is OK, &  why workers like the karaoke lady can be loose with her mouth and tell people Fuck Off…It’s a reflection of poor management from the Boss himself…


    • February 4, 2015 at 8:18 am

      Aja.A., You should take up your complaint on Yelp. Henry Louie (Mapunapuna) management are more likely to read it there than here.
