Yummy gourmet burgers!  
On Friday afternoon, Mark sent me the link to a musubi place on King Street called Mana Bu's which is supposed to have the best musubis (rice balls) in town. We decided to go and try it on Saturday since we both LOVE musubis with a passion!

Unfortunately, due to all the press coverage that it's had recently, the line was literally out the door and onto the street yesterday... :( So we decided to head out to Kapahulu and try a gourmet burger place (Burgers on the Edge) which we've also been meaning to try. :)

Burgers on the Edge is a create-your-own burger place with tons of interesting ingredients and condiment heaven for folks like us! It was A LOT of food, but very delicious!! :)

Here's what I ordered:

My veggie version of the ultimate burger: On chibatta bread, portabello mushroom, fried egg, lettuce, crispy onions, sprouts, and mozzarella cheese -- YUM!! With a side of regular fries... :)

Mark had the burger with sundried tomatoes, crispy onions, lettuce, port mushrooms, and blue cheese. His fries were the special truffle fries, which he loved! :)

Forgive the horrible-ness of the way I look in the photo - it was more for the burger, anyway...

It was all quite good!! I also ordered a side of ranch dressing which went wonderfully with my veggie sandwich! :D I think they've made new fans of us and we'll definitely be back to try other combinations. :)

Yes, it was a far cry from the musubis that we were craving, but it was really a good choice as an alternative. :) The musubis will have to wait until next weekend! :D

And I can't end this post without a Cooper photo... he's getting to be much bigger and won't be the small little puppy he once was anymore... They grow up SO fast!!

Hope you're all having a nice weekend!! I'm off to HUG my fuzzy dog!! :)

Oh yum! I am so hungry now! Those burgers look awesome. (And the rice balls at the other place sound good too!)
And that picture of you with Cooper is just soooo cute!! I just want to cuddle him!

I'll be on the next plane, okay?

Those burgers (and my veggie sandwich all were VERY good!!) Mark wants to go back as soon as possible to try other variations... :) We still have to try that musubi place next weekend, though! :D

And thanks for your comments about the Cooper photo! He's still so tiny, but he's growing so fast!! I feel like his puppy time is almost over!!

Haha!! I'd welcome you here ANYTIME! :)

Yes, you have to go there!! :) There's a similar place in Kahala Mall, but I think this place is better. :) Mark and I have already planned what we were going to eat the next time we go back. :)

Thanks for your comment!!

He is really tiny!! He's still less than 4 pounds right now, but he's much bigger than when we brought him home! Before I know it, he won't be a puppy anymore...

And it didn't take me long with the food photos. :) Mark & I LOVE to eat... one of our favorite things is trying new and different places in Hawaii. :) It is really bad for my diet, however... :P

I've had lunch already so why I'm feeling hungry again while looking at those photos? ;)

And that picture of you and Cooper is so cute! To see you both smiling made my day!

Big hugs to you both! :)

The burgers were just so good there!! Even my veggie version! :)

And thanks for the comment on the photo!! I want to take as many pictures of Cooper as I can now... he'll be out of the puppy stage before I know it! :(
