What a difference a few short years make. We first wrote about the Aloun Farms Pumpkin Patch in 2012. Exploration: Hawaii was a little over a year old and we had a small, yet loyal following. Five years later, we went back to Aloun Farms to do some pumpkin picking, this time, with a little pumpkin of our own.
Kapolei is hardly the first place that pops to my mind when it comes to contemporary, modern dining. That said, Oahu’s “Second City” has been stepping up her game. The latest addition worth mentioning is Chef Roy Yamaguchi’s contribution to the westside, Eating House 1849. Located next to the Regal Kapolei Commons 12 Theater Complex, this is the second of three Eating House 1849 restaurants to pop up in the state. If you’re a fan of Roy’s, then you’ll likely want to make the drive out.
Kapolei might not automatically pop to mind when thinking of breakfast hot spots. However, one little cafe, tucked between a Jamba Juice and a Papa John’s, in a tiny strip mall next to a gas station, is trying to change that.
