Where In Hawaii is Edward Sugimoto? - October 28, 2009

October 28th, 2009
By

Bruddah MakiSushi captured his first WIH victory last week when he correctly guessed Yohei Sushi Restaurant. Congrats Maks!

This week, we've got a special treat for ya! Since WWE is featured on the front page of today's Advertiser (print version), we're gonna try something a lil' different to welcome in the new meat, er blood, er readers. ;)

Long time poster and WWE `ohana member hemajang submitted an image for consideration for a future WIH. I thought that there was no better way to mix the "old" (no offense hemmaz) with the new than to have hemajang's photo welcome them on in. Plus, with Halloween coming up in just 3 days, his Pig's Feet dish fit the bill. :P

So hurr we gooo! For the oldies (but goodies ;) ), you know what to do. For the newbies, check out the photo below and try to guess "Where In Hawaii" it is. Post your guess(es) in the comment area below. Good luck chy'all!

    phew...survived da first round, no knock out yet, was afraid da first poster might guess it correctly. WWE'ers are a sharp bunch. However, didn't think Mr. Ed would tell what the dish was, so that is a beeeg clue.

    My co-worker and I go eat out once a week, usually at hole-in-da-walls, nothing fancy, our version of cheap eats and we no shame, try anything.

    Da No-Feah Factah.. (Pillies not afraid to lose, Yankers are)..

    Da Fat-Guy Factah.. Pillies get Spam fan and Scott Eyre, the closest t'ing to a fat guy in the WS.. fat guys know they get one chance wit' da pretty girl and one chance in da WS, and they don't blow it.. (so to speak)..

    Da Kim Chee Factah - Chan Ho Park (aka CHP) will avenge B.H. Kim's WS meltdown and save Korean peopo an' Da Pillies from mo' WS hum-ili-ation..

    Da Samaurai vs. Da Computah Factah -
    Yanker Coach/Former Catchah Girardi overmanages based on computer readouts and ADD style.. bound to make some big mistakes dat way..
    Pills Coach Cholly goes on gut feel and emotion which always trumps computah, plus speaks Nihongo from playeen' days in Japan.. can not speak language wit'out some samurai spirit rubbeen' off..
    West Virginny Yojimbo vs. ADD Eye-talian wit' computah.. (try take yo pick)..

    The Whirl Seriez is all about Kharma vs. Kharma, the exciting paht bein' dat nobody knows eggz-ackally wuts goin' happen fo' suah..

    It does look like adobo. mmm...I get da onoz now. But I dunno where! Iike say Zip's cuz look like da old plates we used to eat off of while on break but I don't recall seeing pig feet on the specials. I want to say it's filipino but it also looks a little curry-ish. In which case, I wouldn't know cuz i no like curry. But I'll eat balut! LOL....Looks like all the Filipino restaurants have been named already so I really have NO guess!


  26. tita leerz:

    Maybe next week, I get'um. LOL!


  27. kuya.d:

    @t-roy - mabuhay cafe, is that the one in town near chinatown, right across the canal from aala park, up that side street?


  28. tita leerz:

    And to everyone in the winnerz' circle, CONGRATS! My apologies for never having congratulated anyone. I'm always too busy trying to read through all the posts to see if anyone's gotten the correct answer. By the time I get down to the post box, I forget my manners!


  29. kuya.d:

    My dad make that kine pigs feet, but the sauce tastes more toward the shoyu/sugar side. But my parents' house no more red table.


  30. kuya.d:

    @leerz - manners, you? ... nahnahnah!


  31. tita leerz:

    Aren't you supposed to be teaching right now? LOL!


  32. kuya.d:

    @Ed - I know you all into the Series ... but the NBA season is here, and for now my Golden State Warriors are in the playoff race (in about a month, we'll be looking forward to the Lottery).


  33. tita leerz:

    hit it up with a little bit of oyster sauce...just a little...and CHOKE garlic!

  36. M:

    Pig Feet reminds about the Pig Feet soup that I ate in Okinawa two years at a hole in a wall place. We had a difficult time trying to place our order but it was worth the effort. It was the best pig feet soup ever!


  37. tita leerz:

  40. David In Oregon:

  44. Coconut Willy:

    Wow 43 already!

    Food again!? Oh well, I'll throw in Utage?


  45. hemajang:

    sorry guys...didn't think would take this long. Restaurant not that well known but we go there maybe once a month, food is good, I like their sari sari, pinakbet and pancit. Last week was the first time we ordered their pig's feet adobo, was pretty good, meat was tender, no need knife and didn't have a strong vinigah taste. Next time I going try their lechon w/tomatos and onions...I hear real ono.

    yeah, pig's feet not so scary. I think the chicken feet dim sum from chinatown look scarier...taste surprisingly good though.


  46. M:

    Thelma's Restaurant


  47. mcat:

    omg i have no idea!
    pigs feet? sorry, not for me!


  48. kuya.d:

    @leerz - actually, our position is classified as behavior specialist (for what it's worth) ... we're with HGEA. Just know that within the DOE, we all handcuffed by how the HSTA goes ... we have little say.


  49. NeedaHobby:

    @hemajang - aack, chicken feet? I can say I tried it but don't need to have it again. I agree, it was tasty, but I couldn't get used to the chewy and crunchy texture. :shock:


  50. kuya.d:

    Wow! My union talk comment stay in moderation.

    @hemaz - I like eat at this place. You talking about Filipino food making me miss home. Hilo, no mo any Pilifino restaurants.

    @Ynakz - get Pilifino food at Chinese restaurants prolly because get manongs/manangs in the kitchen.


  51. hemajang:

    @NeedaHobby, just don't think about what those feet was stepping in all their lives.


  52. tita leerz:

    THELMA'S! Das da one!
    Deng. It's in tha hood too! Slap me for not knowing any better!
    ...I'm scared of chicken feet too.
