Coconut Grill, Hilo
Thanks for hanging in there, I’ve been out of town for a while. First it was off to Hilo for a quick trip then Vegas all of last week for a wedding.
Hilo, although it was a very short trip, was great as always. Most people who know me know that this is my favorite neighbor island city to visit.
We stayed at our usual, cheap no frills hotel, Hilo Seaside. Staff at the reception desk were friendly as always.
For dinner we went to Ken’s Pancake House at about 10:00 pm. The food was good, but the lighting wasn’t – so no pictures of that dinner.
The next morning we needed a quick, convenient breakfast so we decided to eat at Hilo Seaside in the Coconut Grill restaurant. I’ve had so-so food and service in the past but being lazy we didn’t feel like driving somewhere else for breakfast.
He had bacon, eggs, and fried rice (the photo at the top).
And I had Portuguese sausage, eggs, and pancakes.
I enjoyed all of my food choices. But his fried rice seemed a little on the sweet side for me. It was pretty much a better experience than in the past…except for the part where the waitress spilled a full glass of juice on my purse. She was very apologetic, but I feel like at other places I would normally get my meal comped for something like that. I mean, it was my purse…with OJ all over. Anyways, I’m just thankful it didn’t go on my formal clothes that I had on. I only brought one set of those clothes and we were on our way to a funeral that morning.
Let’s find a positive note to end on though…the food was better this time and the wait for the food wasn’t as long – both good improvements from the last several times I was here. But for me, I think I’ve had enough. Too bad, the photos look ono don’t they?
