Poke Stop-Mililani

I don't eat poke--I've never tried it, and probably never will, but one of my new favorite restaurants is Poke Stop.

I picked up food on Father's Day weekend, during which time they had a special for a 12 oz. Daddy's Ribeye Cut Encrusted with Blue Crabmeat.

DH ordered that special with Brown Rice and Mesclun Greens.

He really enjoyed it and ate the entire thing--no leftovers!

Since I don't eat poke and I rarely eat seafood, at first I thought about getting the one chicken dish they offered, Chicken Wings in a Taegu Sauce, but after I looked up what Taegu was, I decided to pass.

Then I decided to get the Tofu & Portabello w/Basil Pesto Sandwich. It comes with a choice of side, and I opted to get the Eggplant Fries.

That day they happened to be out of tofu, so they offered to make the sandwich with an extra portabello and cheese.

The sandwich was sooooo good. Even though there was no tofu, it was still so delicious.

And the Eggplant Fries (they were tempura-style) are REALLY good too (I just wish they gave more of the Remoulade Dipping Sauce).

Another special they had for the week was Snickers Cheesecake, which I decided to get for DH since he just loves Snickers.

He did let me have a bite, and although I like thicker, denser cheesecakes, the Snickers Cheesecake was still good.

And of course I had to get dessert for myself, so I ended up getting Bread Pudding.

It came with a syrup (it tasted like store-bought pancake syrup), but since I like my bread pudding with no syrup or sauce, I just ate it as is.

It was really good.

It was sweet, but not too sweet, and simply delicious.

The staff was really friendly, and I thought the prices at Poke Stop were reasonable (they offer a Facebook discount on Mondays).

You can even follow them Poke Stop on Twitter (which is how I found out about the specials).

I already can't wait to go back to eat the Portabello Sandwich again.

And the Eggplant Fries.

And whatever dessert(s) they're offering.

I never would've guessed that Poke Stop would become one of my favorite restaurants!
