Shortplate (aka beef belly), tomato salad, mullet

We were graciously invited to dinner last night by Helen, who we know from work.  Turns out Helen is a foodie!  I will have to go out with her more now.  So Helen invited us to Plancha, which is a pop-up restaurant by Chef Robert McGee.  Plancha is located at Morning Glass Coffee & Cafe in Manoa, only has dinner service and only on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays.  Unfortunately, the last dinner service is scheduled for November 16, 2011.  Andre and I were so happy we were able to catch it during its run!  (more…)

Shredded beef

I had a craving for Chipotle Mexican Grill the other day.  I usually get a burrito with barbacoa, black beans, rice, sour cream, cheese, medium salsa, and guacamole.  Sometimes I will switch it up and get the burrito bowl instead with pretty much the same ingredients.  It is delicious!  Unfortunately, Chipotle does not have a restaurant here in Hawaii.  Why, Chipotle, why??  So, the next best thing is Taco Del Mar, which Andre and I had for lunch one day because there is one by the office.  Sadly, it was not the same.  So what did I do?  Found a recipe online and made the Chipotle barbacoa beef myself!  (more…)
