Hula Daddy Coffee-Kona coffee

Not all "Kona" coffees are not 100% Kona coffee. Most commercial coffees contain less than 10% Kona coffee, but they claim to be "Kona" coffee. The Hula Daddy offers Kona-grown, 100% premium pure Kona coffee. The coffee tasting and farm tour was just magical. I am still think about the aroma of Hula Daddy coffee... Please visit them when you are in Kona, Big Island Hawaii.

Lotus in Kona–Organic and Solar Powered!

Their green papaya salad is excellent! On top of that they only use local organic produces and they are 1st in Hawaii to use solar power to operating their restaurant. How awesome is that?

Hilo Bay Cafe

Definitely one of the best meals I had on the big island. Great food, great ambiance, great service. It's bit strange that this gem is in the mall next to the Walmart, but who cares...
I had the pureed Carrot soup as a starter. Top with best juicy Blue Bay burger. I love the fact that they listed where they got their local ingredients from. Must-Check-In place in Hilo.

Garden Snack Club, Hilo, Big Island Hawaii

This is the far best restaurant ever. But!!! I need to put a disclaimer. If you guys are expecting to see a fancy glitzy place, this us not it. This place serves most freshest, healthy, no additives and no fake food that you would taste. When I visit any big city with lots of fancy restaurants show off, this and that sort of reviews from whatever the magazines, I always wished I can eat at the Garden Snack Club. I wish I can have thus place by my house. Today, my husband & I had the Thai pizza. As always, it was fresh and yummy. Whenever you visit Hilo, Hawaii, try this place. You won't be disappointed. I promise.

Pho is good in Hilo, Hawaii

The Pho noodle soups are pretty basic, but it will definitely satisfy a Pho craving! The best Pho noodle house you can get on the Big island of Hawaii. People are gentle and friendly and service is quick. This place is very well priced. I often spend just a little bit over $20.00 for the both of us and are always satisfied when we're done. The waitresses are always very friendly.

Dim Sum Sunday

Dim Sum is usually linked with the older tradition of yum cha (tea tasting), which has its roots in travellers on the ancient Silk Road needing a place to rest. Thus teahouses were established along the roadside. Rural farmers, exhausted after working hard in the fields, would also go to teahouses for a relaxing afternoon of tea. At first, it was considered inappropriate to combine tea with food, because people believed it would lead to excessive weight gain. People later discovered that tea can aid in digestion, so teahouse owners began adding various snacks.

Safety Belt by Stuart Weitzman

A wrapped stiletto heel and double platform elevate a chic tricolor bootie fashioned in rich suede and topped with an adjustable buckle strap. And the hidden Platform gives extra height without changing the foot angl.
