on day 6, dr. howell from UH came to pick up cameron and i, and then he and some other grad students from his group treated us to dim sum at happy day! it was tasty. mmm… free and delicious.
then cameron got hungry in the afternoon so we went to ALOHA SUSHI at the pearlridge mall.
aloha sushi is an inexpensive sushi chain in hawaii.
they had a pretty display with plastic sushi showing the different sushi combinations available:
cameron got one of those little boxes:
aloha sushi is good if you want a quick, inexpensive snack.
i bought some more banana ice cream from holotta ice cream
for dinner, we went with cameron’s parents to the harbor pub in waikiki because cameron’s dad had a gift certificate from there. the harbor looked really beautiful:
the food turned out to be excellent! we started off with a really tasty greek salad:
then we had a half-order of nachos, also very tasty. refried beans and cheese were baked in a little casserole dish and then topped with lettuce, tomatoes, olives, guacamole, and sour cream. it also came with some fresh salsa.
finally, for the main course, we had a large pizza – half tomato and basil, half “harbor special,” which is basically everything (pepperoni, olives, green peppers, mushrooms, ham, onions, and red peppers).
this pizza was seriously delicious. the crust was nice and crispy at the bottom but soft in the middle, the cheese was super melty and stringy, and the sauce was very tomato-ey and smooth. our waitress was very nice too and gave us recommendations on how much to get because initially we ordered way too much food. we ended up with some leftover pizza, and the total cost was really reasonable.
