What is a Bubble Drink? It is made with original blend of tea, fruits and natural flavors served over sweet and chewy pearls. These pearls also known as “Bobas” are made from tapioca starch and taste like caramel-flavored jell-o. Drink with a fat straw so that you can enjoy your drink and chew your pearls.

Mexican Food in Paradise

April 9, 2012 3 comments

Cholo’s is Hawaii’s Best Little Mexican Restaurant! One of the best places on all of Oahu to experience the island’s natural beauty and historic charm is hidden in the village of Haleiwa on the North Shore, making Cholo’s a true destination point.

Located in the North Shore Marketplace in Haleiwa. A wide variety of authentic Mexican dishes available in generous portions at great prices. Specials include fajitas, chile rellenos and fresh fish tacos.

Cholo’s is also a favorite spot for the North Shore’s big wave surfers to take a lunch break, or grab a few beers after the surfing is done for the day. If you stop at Cholo’s during a surf contest keep your eyes open, you never know who might drop in!

Got Malasada?

March 11, 2012 1 comment

A Malasada is a Portuguese confection, made of egg-sized balls of yeast dough that are deep-fried in oil and coated with granulated sugar. They were first made by inhabitants of Madeira Island. A popular variation is where they are hand dropped into the oil and people have to guess what they look like. Traditional malasadas contain neither holes nor fillings, but some varieties of malasadas are filled with flavored cream or other fillings. Traditionally the reason for making malasadas has been to use up all the lard and sugar in the house, luxuries forbidden from consumption during Lent. Malasadas are eaten especially on Mardi Gras Wednesday. Ono, as we say here in Hawai’i!

Check out this video on how they make Malasadas:
