Island Lava Java Review (Kona, Hawaii)

Island Lava Java Bistro & Grill is situated right in the heart of the very tourist-centric Kona Village on the Big Island of Hawaii. We dined at Island Lava Java for breakfast because of the reviews we had read and the fact that it’s situated right on the ocean. Unfortunately, this was a mistake. There […]

Ba Le Vietnamese (Kona, Hawaii)

We happened upon Ba Le Vietnamese in the Kona Coast Shopping Center one morning while searching for a quick bite to eat before we hit the beach. We were intrigued. The restaurant had a similar logo to the Ba Le locations in Vancouver (Kingsway, Chinatown, and Surrey) – although we’re not certain whether or not […]

Buns In The Sun Review (Kona, Hawaii)

Buns in the Sun has been a Big Island landmark for over 20 years with Kona’s best baked goods, including breads, cakes and pastries. They have become the “go-to” bakery and deli for breakfast and lunch for island residents and visitors alike. Casual and laid back, Buns in the Sun is located in Lanihau Center, […]

The Coffee Shack Review (Captain Cook, Hawaii)

From all the reviews on Yelp and Urbanspoon, The Coffee Shack sounded a lot like our beloved Kalaheo Coffee Co. on Kauai. So the first morning of our 10-day stay on the Big Island of Hawaii, we hopped in our rental car and drove from Kailua-Kona to Captain Cook to check out this restaurant for breakfast. […]

Haleo Luau Dinner & Show On The Big Island Of Hawaii

The Big Island of Hawaii’s Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort & Spa graciously hosted Eating in Vancouver at the phenomenal Haleo, Luau Dinner & Show. The story of Haleo – the Voice of Life, celebrates the history of the ahupuaa (land division) called Keauhou. A journey through an extraordinary time in Hawaiian history highlights the birth at […]

Taco Del Mar Review (Kona, Hawaii)

  Even though I love Tex-Mex food, I’ve never enjoyed the Taco Del Mar items that I’ve eaten in Vancouver – they just never seemed very fresh or tasty. And when we go to the States, we always eat at Chipotle, so I rarely frequent this particular chain in America. However, I noticed a few […]

Da Poke Shack Review (Kona, Hawaii)

Drive a little ways past the main downtown area in Kona and you’ll discover Da Poke Shack. It’s like a little local fish market that serves beer and soda, and multiple varieties of poke. Poke (meaning “to slice”) is a raw fish (usually tuna) salad served as an appetizer in Hawaiian cuisine. Da Poke Shack’s poke […]

Wyland Coffee Cafe (Kona, Hawaii)

In the heart of historic Kailua-Kona town on the Big Island of Hawaii, just passed the Farmers Market, lies a delightful landmark called Waterfront Row. This charming two level nautical complex is easily distinguished by its blue roof, one hundred foot glass windowed lookout tower, and a giant three ton iron anchor at its doorstep. […]

Orange Tree (Kona, Hawaii)

Orange Tree is a self-serve frozen yogurt shop located in Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii. Orange Tree is slightly different from Pinkberry, Red Mango or Yogen Fruz because you can determine how little or much you want from multiple flavors and pick your choice of a variety toppings. Instead of being charged per […]
