    Had dinner at the Vintage Cave Club the other night. Was able to obtain the private dining alcove where the Obamas have spent more than one NYE. I sat in Barry's spot.

    The art and antiquities collection are incredible. From Japanese national treasures to an ancient amphora still filled with wine to this huge Picasso installation:

    Also ate at some very local, hole in the wall places. The Rice Spot, Ahi and Veggies, AGU Ramen to name a few. Here's sliced and fried pig ears and fried chicken skin. Both items on the pau hana menu.

    Spent the day in the North Shore and environs. Everywhere you stop there's at least one shrimp truck. The original and mothership is Giovanni's. Here's their thing, garlic shrimp.

    Last pic was one of my favorite bites of the meal from Sushi Sho. Copper River salmon and it was so damn good. With these little omakase bites the chef will often have little dabs of 1-3 condiments in different areas so you get different flavours popping as you chew. Okay, two more, the monk fish liver also. It is referred to as "the foie gras of the sea" for very good reason. Incredible and I could eat it daily.

    But it's a cruel, damn shame how they force-feed those monkfish.

    I was unimpressed by the garlic shrimp when I was there in February, but a trip to Matsumoto's for shave ice was worth the drive up there. Also really interesting to contrast the north shore with Waikiki

    Most of the island vs. Waikiki you mean.

    Nothing like walking back to the hotel after slurping down some awesome local ramen to see the Hard Rock Cafe overflowing with tourists. Why TF even bother going to Hawaii?
