Back Home in Lahaina + Cafe Rio
Finally hitting the last of the popular Hawaiian places in South Bay (Gardena/Manhattan Beach/Redondo Beach/Torrance/surrounding), Back Home In Lahaina. It was pretty good, although to be fair it's pretty hard to screw up loco moco. We need to come back again to try the french toast and the fried rice, as those are the benchmarks... I also feel compelled to try King's Hawaiian again after the last meal there was so bad as every other meal before's been decent.
Cafe Rio, a Mexican place kind of like Baja Fresh or Rubio's, for dinner. It was passable. Certainly no better than the aforementioned, but not bad.
