Oahu’s Triple D – Uncle’s Fish Market and Grill

I’ve been slacking on the posts recently so I’m hoping to finish up the Triple D segment before the start of the weekend.  We visited the Pier on Sunday and was hoping to have a late lunch at Nico’s.  However, Nico’s was closed and Uncle’s was open.  A local that came to eat with us told us that Uncle’s is where most of the fishermen go eat.

Colourful menu boards with lots of specials to choose from.

That day it wasn’t busy but there were still about 5 tables being served.  Mostly just one or two ppl per table, no other families.  Probably customers that had to work on a Sunday at the docks.

The right page of the menu where it explains the fish and texture was really helpful.

The menu had a good selection of entrees. Many of the items are kid friendly. Big portions as well.

There is also live entertainment on weekends and certain nights.  Their website has a calendar of events.  The only entertainment we had that day was sports on their TVs.  Read the rest of this entry

Oahu’s Triple D – Mac 24/7 (Waikiki)

Located inside the Hilton Waikiki Beach Hotel - 2500 Kuhio Avenue. Not quite by the beach but 2 blocks from it.

The restaurant name Mac 24/7 suggests its closing hours which are none unless it snows.  This restaurant is a block from the Aston Banyan located in the Hiltion Waikiki Beach Hotel.  Our friend mentioned that he saw an episode of Man vs. Food where the host did the Pancake challenge at the same restaurant so we decided to give it a try for dinner.  Not the challenge though!

Valentine’s Dinner Part 3 – Shellfish Party Like It’s 1999

Bah. Whatever that means.  So this was the dish that I made.  Patch doesn’t eat shellfish so he picked up some shellfish and the rest was my responsibility.

Shellfish Cooked in Wine

This is an extremely simple dish.  The secret is to get fresh ingredients.  One of my favourite places to get seafood is from The Lobster Man in Granville Island.  It is not too expensive, what you would expect a proper fish store would charge (T&T, Superstore, etc are not fish shops!).

My 2.5lb crab was $25, and mussels and manila clams were $5 per pound.  I got a pound each of mussels and clams.  Read the rest of this entry
