It was the greatest day ever. It has been awhile seen we put a lot of effort for our anniversary since we are always so busy and paying bills. Walter and I woke up early in the morning for an hour drive to the other side of the island, hit up some refreshments, broke my sandals, and ended the night with an awesome dinner with my favorite dishes in the world.
Left for the other side of the island and we arrived 20 minutes early the famous Romy's! But it was okay, it was better than waiting in a long line plus a 20 minutes wait for our food and the crowded benches! Perfect because we were the second people in line and while waiting for them to set up, the smell of the garlic being fried to crisp were filling up the air; SUPER DELICIOUS for our nostril! Then they were open and the feast begins. I was a bit disappointed that the 1 lb. steamed prawns weren't available so I decided to buy 1 more extra plate for me and 1 for my boyfriend which makes a total of 3 plates for the two of us.
Driving back home with our tummy super full and satisfied, we just had to stop over for some shave ice. Since it's almost lunch time and the sun is beginning to get a little hot, Matsumoto's Shave Ice was super long so we decided to go to the neighbor, Aoki's Shave ice. I got us some large Blue Hawaii syrup with sweet beans loaded underneath. It was so delicious, it's very simple; Ice + Syrup + beans = Satisfied! With that being said, we headed back home for an hour power nap.... well, Walter did anyway; I was too excited and decided to get ready for the rest of the day.
Such a huge time gap but hey, I am a female and I take long to get ready. We headed to town for a little shopping gift. Headed to Victoria's Secret and while in line, I noticed my sandal strap totally snapped and was in the middle of falling apart and a few more steps and my $10 sandals will make me shoeless and walking bare feet in Ala Moana. Thank goodness, we parked close by and had a pair of my home slippers inside. Things happen for a reason, right? That's when I got treated to buy ONE sandal to wear for dinner. I was having a mid-life crisis and was having panic attack with my broken shoes, we just had to stop by the food court and let me cool off. Ordered a large pina colada smoothie and it helped me calm down for a second. It was perfect, cool, sweet, and tangy.
After having this cool drink, we walked on over to Slipper House. They have tons of ladies sandals, shoes, boots, and slippers and super cheap prices. I found me the best sandal that matches my outfit that night plus 2 more pairs of footwear; I was a very happy camper. But I had to find me another item to bring home and walked on over to Forever 21 and got a super duper cute floral print dress. I'm sure it will show up on this blog sooner or later.
Walter drove me to the surprise dinner he's been so excited about for days when I seen the location, it was not the prettiest nor the most classiest area. It's located on a main road area with some barber shops next door and business buildings. Saw the sign "Sasabune Sushi, Trust Me!" I was already excited because I seen the word SUSHI. Walked into a very "cliche" and ordinary Japanese place, nothing out of the ordinary. This place was kind of strict on their food policy, if they chef says don't use shoyu or "soy sauce" or wasabi with your sushi then don't. Forgive me but I don't remember the names of the entrees but all I know is that they were very delicious and I seriously did not want any shoyu on ANY of them.
We had 13 different meal and you can stop whenever you want but we decided to taste every single one of the 13 different meal they had to offer. You can also decide to order more of them after the 13 course which I did with the fresh oysters and the sashimi. I got my wish but Walter was not so lucky with his fish egg, haha. If you are ever here, it is a most def to try if you're not really on a budget. They are open til 2 am, I believe so go on and try. I am not sure if they have any other locations but if you are ever in Oahu, go here here here!!
