Tango Market

leave a comment »

Of late the voices in my head have been getting louder.

I don’t mean the crazy ones that tell me that hot water from the bathroom sink is hot enough to cook instant cup noodles with (ah the joys of a dorm room). Or the violent ones that try and convince me to punch annoying people in the face for the betterment of humanity.

I mean, the bitchy ones that have a smart ass comment  for every situation. I suspect it might be because the bitchy side of me has finally found acceptance over here in Hawaii, where I can say what I think (most of the time) without being judged. But then again, there are still comments that I can’t say out loud as I think them…

To the girl walking through the CO-ED dorm dressed in her underwear: All your clothes in the wash sweetie?

Damn, I would love to say that out loud to her one day. Some day chun, some day.

Before you think too badly of me, let’s get back on task.

If you live in Honolulu, go and eat in Tango Market. Try their duck confit with risotto cakes, you won’t regret it. It’s about 15 bucks before taxes and tip but damn it’s worth it. Here’s the address because i’m nice that way.

1200 Ala Moana
Bldg 6 Ste 601
Honolulu, HI 96814

and a photograph of the food you can expect, because this is a food blog after all.

It’s been a long time ol’ baking blog of mine. Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten you baby. It’s just been a tough few months.

Okay, maybe not ‘few’. It’s been a long 7 months.

Quick summary: Did an internship with Coke, went through a bad breakup, left Singapore to study for half a year Hawaii, mended my broken heart in Hawaii and fell in love with the place.

I’m currently in Hawaii, definitely the most beautiful place I have ever been. It’s like living in a dream. A beautiful dream that I never want to end.
