We still have a lot of places and things to eat, including Bubbie's Ice Cream, Leonard's Malasadas, a new musubi joint called "Mana Bu's", and dinner with other FoodBuzz Featured Publishers at Tokkuri-Tei.

Oh, and more beach time to try to work off all this great food.

Aloha, Nate

Nate the next time I visit Hawaii, I'll have to get advice from you to where to get some good eats. The lobster dish looks delicious.
