What would you bring to celebrate: Cake or Pie?

Is it the extra detail topped on the cake or its dense flavorful bite? the airy sponge? the light whipped cream?  Or would you bring a pie filled with hand-picked organic fruit from your backyard? with a crispy pastry crust? or a pressed crust of ground walnuts, brown sugar, and dairy organic butter?

Key Lime Pies.. and of course Darlene’s homemade custard pies.

Defend your Dessert...is it the Decor or the Flavor

So I decided to meet them at GRYLT in Manoa (next to First Hawaiian Bank) and shared an adequate sized Fresh green salad topped with tender grilled steak. The light Asian dressing drizzled over the steak was perfect for a midday fare….
