Last week Thursday was my birthday but I ended up having to work the entire day. So on Friday night Kahele took me out to dinner while our kids went with my dad to a BBQ. It was perfect. We ended up going to Haleiwa Joes. I love dinner dates without the kids, it gives us a chance to catch up, but ultimately most of our conversation ends up being about the kids anyway.
Dinner was so yummy! I was craving a cocktail and was tempted to get a virgin Pina Colada, but didn’t want to spend so much on a non-alcoholic drink so I stuck to the Plantation Iced Tea while Kahele had a couple of beers.
We started off with the garlic bread and sauteed mushrooms. Their garlic breads are one of my favorites, I order this every time I’m there.
Kahele ordered the Fishmonger soup. This was such a hearty soup and it was pretty big for an appetizer.
I ended up getting the Salmon Spinach Salad as my entree. This was so yummy. I don’t know how they season the salmon but it created a nice crust with the perfectly cooked center.
Kahele had the Steamed fish. Although he liked it, he said that he wished he’d gone with the steak instead.
