Tango Market

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.



The duck is soft and flavorful. It falls easily away from the bones and dissolves in an explosion of taste in your mouth. It’s a tad on the salty side so please don’t eat this if you’re already pushing the heart attack borderline. The risotto cakes are soft and mushy on the insides and crunchy on the outsides. The vegetables are vegetables, don’t judge them. They’re there to keep you from getting that heart attack and to help you delude yourself that you’re eating healthy food.

It’s a great place to bring your date on a lazy Sunday morning. The place is clean and bright and hopefully she will associate you with that rather than that dark seedy club where you first met her (wait what?). The best thing? It’s casual with that slight hint of class and the prices won’t put you in the red.
