つくね家 and Yogurtland

Tsukuneya bar

To celebrate the 1st annual “A Semester in Hawaii” Blog Competition, the blog contributors dined at Tsukuneya, a Japanese robata grill restaurant near campus.  The menu included 7 different types of tsukune, or grilled minced chicken and yam meatballs, paitan nabe, chicken soup with vegetables that cooks in a pot at the table, and ahi poke, raw, fresh Hawaiian tuna relish.

The conversation turned to ways the students have been making the most of their time at UH: organic farming, cliff jumping, night diving, astrophysical research, bikini contests, ultimate frisbee league play, zebra spotting on the Big Island, daily surfing on the North Shore, to name a few.  After dinner we walked up University to Yogurtland:  red velvet cupcake, cookies ‘n cream, peanut butter, yuzu, lychee, butterfinger…   A semester in Hawaii?  It’s all good.
