Coconut’s Fish Cafe was one of the most surprising places I’ve visited in Sacramento. The first time I went there, I was completely brown away but how delicious the Hawaiian food is at this location, let alone the fact that there was Hawaiian food in Sacramento. This time, we were passing through on the way back to San Francisco from Lake Tahoe. We decided to make the Coconut’s Fish Cafe detour even though it was only slightly on the way home. We were so excited for this meal that we literally ordered the exact same thing as last time: Ahi Tuna Poke Bowl and Fish Tacos. This time we got the spicy sauce on the Poke Bowl though. Nonetheless, it was as delicious as we had remembered. I just love this place!

Honolulu is really known for it’s food. And finally you get a chance to see just some of the delicious foods my mom and I got a chance to try while staying in Hawaii’s capital. We found that there were many, many cheap noodle places. We also encountered various locations that sold ready-made bento boxes including in food courts and the supermarket. With the strong Chinese influence in Hawaii and its large Chinatown, we also got some very delicious dumsum, too. It was so great to get a chance to eat our way through Honolulu … yummy!

Even though we were now staying in the city and didn’t have car access, my mom and I still wanted to see some of the beautiful nature that surrounds Hawaii’s capital. We decided to take the bus, which ended up being quite easy since we were staying here the major terminal Moana terminal station, up to the head of the Moana Falls trail. From there, we hiked through fairly thick jungle on a very muddy trail to Moana Falls. I was a bit disappointed with the waterfall itself just because it wasn’t that big, even if quite tall. The hike though was pretty awesome, though you definitely want grippy hiking shoes since it’s very muddy and slippery!

One of the great things about the airBNB location that we stayed at while in Honolulu is that it was right in Moana and close to everything! The best part is that it was quite close to Moana Beach, which meant we were able to go there to hang out at the beach and then head back to shower, etc. without much hassle. Here, it was relatively uncrowded, much less touristy than Waikiki, the water was warm, there were some but not too many waves, and the sunsets were beautiful. I just love Moana Beach!
