A rising Star

Last week, employees from the company I work for were invited to a tasting at the new restaurant they will be opening in early February, STAR NOODLE.  The food there was amazing; think noodle house / asian tapas... and by the time we left I was stuffed! ... but I could definitely go back for more!  The restaurant itself had a definte trendy atmosphere, something Maui lacks.. it's quite exciting!!

These are just some of the items we tried...
-Steamed pork bun (it's like an open faced manapua... one of my favs!! mm pork!!)
-Somen salad (all the noddles are made at the restaurant)
-I don't know the name of this dish, but it was like a pork + shrimp crepe lettuce wrap, oh and that dipping sauce was amazing.
-Sizzling steak.
-Yes, that's hot dogs... who thought a hot dog could be so "gourmet".. I really enjoyed the Tokyo dog. mm.
-Nori wrapped chicken.
-Chicken Satay.
-Fried Saimin!!
-Scallops + Asparagus.... cooked to perfection!!!!!!


I'm looking forward to trying one of their dessert dishes; MANDAGI - a cross between malasadas and andagi... and it comes with chocolate and caramel dipping sauces and nuts!!

.... my sister's bf told me about this a while back.. but it's true.. look at what Apple will be launching this coming March / April!! How stinkin' awesome! I want one! I NEED ONE!.... The iPad.... it's so magical.... it's like a ginormous iPhone :) minus the phone.


What are your thoughts??  Will this be something you'll be investing in?

Love, S

Ooh trying out a new restaurant before anyone else sounds like so much fun!
I'd like to test an Ipad first before I invest in one...they do look pretty cool.

Read the reviews of IPad first... they say it's not that awesome. You can just upgrade your regular Ipod Touch and make it an IPad, they say.

I love the food... made me soooooooo hungry! xoxo

Melissa said...

Ms. Write said...

Ever since you facebooked status eating there, I've been wondering/waiting for you to blog about the experience! So lucky you got to go!

un petit lapin said...

Mmmmm yum yum, I've just had dinner but you've made me hungry again!

iPass on the iPad. I'd get it if the iBooks app worked in the UK but it only appears to be available to the USA. My smartphone can do way more things than the iPad :/
