We had a very special guest passing through this weekend. A first time visitor to our beautiful Hawaiian islands, from LA to going to Manilla. A family member who happens to really love steak.

And so, without hesitation, we made the easy choice to come to “DK Steakhouse”. IMHO one of  the best steakhouse’s (if not the best) in Hawaii. Why” because they are known not just for fabulous 22 oz Bone-in Dry-Aged Rib Eye Steak (30 day is the bomb) but also for their wonderfully excellent service as well. Managing Partner, Ivy Nagayama, and her great staff never fails and always succeeds to give us the royal treatment. Two very good reasons for returning. Plus, not only do they do steak well, we love their appetizers and other delights.  Oh and not to forget sister restaurant “Sansei” which has excellent quality sushi and serves outstanding Japanese cuisine right next door.

However, aside from their mouth watering onolicious food and outstanding service, we look forward to going back simply because they always make us feel so special and treat us like family!

Often said, a picture is worth more than what mere words only can begin to describe. So without anymore words, here are the pictures….

Lisa’s daughter, who came home from college to spend Christmas here (and returns to UC Irvine soon), has craved for sushi from day one. Actually, a bit longer. Since she hasn’t been home in about two years. So what better way to fulfill her wishes by partaking in extraordinary, innovative, new wave sushi at one of our very favorite restaurants, Sansei in Waikiki, winner of a Hale ‘Aina Gold Award and named one of America’s eight best sushi restaurants by Travel + Leisure.

Choosing was again a no brainer. Sansei consistently serves the very best sushi, comes up with the most unique creations and provides outstanding customer service. From their exquisite Panko Crusted Ahi Sashimi Roll and pleasurable Salmon Skin Roll to their many divine nigiri delights it could not get any better.

Moreover, our server Susanna, delightfully catered to our every need, made sure water glasses remained full and tummies more than satisfied. All-the-while Managing Partner, Ivy Nagayama worked alongside the Sansei team. Even taking time to surprise us with a very delicious Blue Crab Dip from sister and next door restaurant, d.k. Steak House.

Here are just a few pictures of our fabulous meal for you to enjoy:

On today’s outing we are on a 28-foot boat called the Connie B. Deep sea trolling in the Mariana Trench off of Saipan. Despite the ocean being quite rough, we still had so much fun in the sun catching lots of mahi mahi and aku or skip jack tuna.

Please enjoy this sequence with me as I reminisce wonderful memories with friends!

Round 2…rematch of battle between man and another nice sized “Blue Fin Trevally”, also known in Hawaii as Omilu while whipping off the Island of Yap in Micronesia. This time on a G. Loomis HS1021 Suzawa Custom Rod.  Here’s sharing another blessing from Hari Kojima which was to take me along on one more of their many exciting and exotic adventures to the South Pacific. I sincerely hope you enjoy this fight sequence as much as I did, with many more to come…

Wow it’s hard to believe one year has flown by so quickly and it’s now the time of year where we get to celebrate three October birthdays again. Yup, son Matt, daughter-in-law Hiromi and yours truly. Actually, I celebrated my birthday twice (hehehe). Both times at fabulous and one of our all-time favorites, DK Steakhouse. And as with last year, we were yet again “blessed” by an exceptional dinner celebration made wonderfully memorable by GM-Ivy Nagayama, along with her warm, friendly, customer service oriented and remarkable staff. Two of  their treats to us were the Fire Cracker Shrimp Dynamite and Panko-Crusted Seared Freshi Ahi Sashimi from sister restaurant, Sansei. Both awesome and winners in our book! To honest, beside their mouth watering onolicious food and outstanding service, we also look forward to going back because they always make us feel so special and treat us like family!

Some our favorites include their 22 oz Paniolo Rib Eye, 22 oz Bone-in Dry-Aged Rib Eye, Paniolo Filet Mignon, Sansei Filet Mignon and now their Wednesday nite special, a four-course live Main Lobster night delight.

Here are few pictures (click on picture to enlarge) along with a slide show to share:
