kaumakani

I wanna say #HappyFarhersDay to this #Moke #Beast. Miss my #fada always pushing to be successful and always getting mad and giving me shit. I know it’s because you want me to be a better man. That’s why I love this guy. To be honest ALL my friends are scared of you but I know deep down on the inside your just a BIG HEARTED BEAR. 🐻 #throwback #kaumakani #KamaukaniLife #kauai #kauaiiswhy #shawka #hawaii

“Kaumakani”

Whenever I think of Kaumakani, I picture this tree-lined street. My grandma’s sister and her family had a home on this street. I believe these homes were reserved for the management and higher ups who worked with Olokele Sugar Mill. I adore these old plantation homes. I wish there were more of these around. 

Happy hour grinds from Sushi Bushido in Kapa'a, Kaua'i. This Golden Roll is one of their specialties and it comes with Fresh salmon, tuna, crab, and avocado. It is then rolled in seasoned panko and served tempura style on an avocado unagi aioli. Mahalo for the review and Aloha @kauaigirlco “Yesterday’s Golden sushi roll #808plate 5 shakas all day everyday!!!! I lived in Japan so yes 5! #sushi #happyhour #kauai #japanese #kapaa ”

“Days Past”

Here’s another pic of that street in Kaumakani. Driving down that street is like taking a walk back in time. There are huge trees and old lamp posts that line both sides of the street and big, old, plantation style homes. The only thing that gives away the actual year are the new cars parked in some of the driveways. LOL. 

Valentine’s Special: Now though the end of February, Keoki’s Paradise in Kaua'i is featuring their “Cupid’s Hula Pie.” Get it while it lasts. Repost from @keokisparadise 👉Local strawberry cheese cake ice cream on a house-made shortbread cookie crust, topped with a hard fudge layer. Garnished with a house-made strawberry coulis, chocolate chips, and whip cream. 💝👼 #keokisparadise #hulapie #valentinesday #808plate

Have you ever been to Puka Dog in Koloa, Kaua'i? Please listen, because it’s about to get crazy. Start with either a Polish Sausage or Veggie dog that is stuffed inside a house-made Hawaiian sweet bread roll that has been toasted from the inside out. Now, add your choice of Garlic Lemon Secret Sauce (mild, spicy, hot, or lava). Pick your favorite fruit relish (mango, pineapple, papaya, coconut, banana, or star fruit). And if you like mustard you can top it with Aunty Lilikoi’s Hawaiian Mustard. #MindBlown 😋💥. Mahalo for the review and tag 👉@aliyahcummingsss “ @808plate #808plate 5 shakas! Kauai, Koloa polish sausage dog with mango sauce and Lilikoi mustard amazing!” #pukadog #koloa
