I can’t count how many times I used the “… but I’m eating for two!” excuse this weekend, starting with the hearty breakfast / lunch at Aloha Factory for some no-frill Hawaiian feast.
As if the order of the gigantic macadamia nut pancakes drenched in vanilla pudding was not enough, I had to get TWO orders of char shu tacos, all while picking the food from Kevin’s combo plate. Boy, food here is so good. I’m not even a huge Hawaiian food fan and I adore this mom-and-pop joint!
Then for dinner, we went to Gatten Sushi in Monterey Park for some revolving sushi goodness. Since I can’t eat raw fish, many of the sushi I ate here were very non-traditional, like fried green bean sushi! I would usually avoid these funky nigiri and rolls, but I can’t be too choosey right now. But to my surprise, some of these creative sushi are pretty good. Just stay away from fried salmon skin though. It sounded good at first, but it was tough and kinda yucky.
Natto is definitely my best friend during pregnancy.
