Happy Birthday, Mama Le! We had celebrated her birthday at Izakaya Torae Torae and had a blast. Mahalo to Chef Hide for taking care of us!
Also we are excited about two big events that we will be participating in this weekend. First off, is the eagerly anticipated Hale Aina Awards presented by Honolulu Magazine. We are vying for some awards (and crossing our fingers) but more importantly, we will be serving food there as well, under the aegis of Piggy Smalls! We will be previewing some of the new items on the menu! We are also excited to be a part of Rice Fest at Ward Centre. Both events are happening this Sunday, September 25!
In the meantime, we will be on our regular farmers market schedule, including Mililani on Sunday as well. Here are the specials of the week:
BU BO HUE — pork belly, brisket, calamansi, satay, banana blossom, rau ram, and ong choy, vermicelli noodles
PORCHETTA BANH MI — crispy pork belly, house sambal, shoyu pickled cucumbers, smoked onion w/ Hue-style beef broth
As always, you can view the entire schedule and menu over at the Farmers Market page.
