Well Bento | 2750 S. Beretania, Suite 204, Honolulu, HI 96826 |
Avoid all the heart clogging plate lunches Hawai‘i has to offer and head straight to Well Bento. The owners Todd, an Iron Chef Hawai‘i winner, and Kristine Brown, a certified nutritionist, cook up the freshest and healthiest plate lunches you’ll ever eat. I’m a creature of habit and always get the Zen Macrobiotic, packed with brown rice, tahini gravy, fresh veggies, beans, potatoes, mayo-free macaroni salad and coleslaw. And vegetarian isn’t all they do – my meat loving friends crave their steaks!
Delicious and filling to the very last bite!
JJ Bistro and French Pastry | 3447 Wai‘alae Avenue Honolulu HI 96816 |
The decor of this French-Laotian restaurant – an Eiffel Tower archway, Asian trinkets and Egyptian figures – is only a hint of what’s to come from its kitchen.
Their set four course meals for $24.70 is the perfect way to plan your dinner out. My favorite option comes with asparagus soup, baked lobster on French bread and their Fisherman Potpie, which includes salmon, bamboo shoots and zucchini in a green curry sauce.
And last, but definitely not least here, is dessert! The aforementioned portions aren’t huge, so don’t worry you’ll still have room – if not your stomach will make room once you set your eyes on their dessert case. Highly recommended are their chocolate pyramid and chocolate liliko‘i desserts!
