Fish Hopper Seafood & Steaks – July 10, 2010

Babe Terri was in town this past weekend, and since her job takes her to places exotica – lunch with the Babes is a rare occurrence for her.  The Kona Babes love to accommodate a sister, especially when she is not able to commune with the rest of us very often, so a Saturday brunch at Fishhopper’s was decided upon. 

 I was still dealing with a broken waterline at home, so Carol graciously sent over photos and menu items.   Breakfast at the Fish Hopper is served daily, from 7:30 to 11:30 am.  Locally idolized and expected  specials are featured on the menu for Kona (they have another location in Monterey, where I am certain they do not serve kalua pig and cabbage for breakfast).  

 It appears that the gals started with a fresh fruit bowl served with strawberry yogurt ($7.95) – and, of course, the perfunctory morning beverages. (whaat-  no Kona coffee??) 

Terri and Carol both ordered the Hamburger Loco Moco – a concoction (for you non islanders) consisting of a hamburger patty, two eggs and brown gravy served over a scoop of rice.  Mei  decided on the Ono Loco Moco – fresh ono (wahoo :  white meat, not fishy flavored) with the fried eggs and brown gravy.  These are all artery blockers for sure, but I would personally kill for fresh ono loco moco, and take aspirin.  The Loco Moco’s are priced at $9.95, and will definitely fill you up!    Mei, did you use chopsticks?  NOTE:  Several of the Babes  could belong to “Have Chopsticks Will Travel” club whenever we eat out, and I frequently carry a pair of disposables in my purse because I found out that the Italians must have used them to eat pasta – because they really do work better than a fork and pasta spoon.   

  

Tina happily bucked the loco moco trend and dined on a half-order of Eggs Benedict, which was served with roasted potatoes, creamy hollandaise sauce  and served on an appropriate fish-shaped plate.  A full order is $10.95 and I did not get the cost on a half order, but it has to be much less.  The restaurant also offers Benedicts served with either Dungeness Crab or Ono for $12.95. 

The girls sipped on spicy Bloody Mary’s ($3.99) and frosty  Mimosa’s ($3.99)  while enjoying the Kailua Bay view from their perch at the window.  This dining experience could easily become a Babes monthly outing!
