Best macadamia nut pancakes... EVER!  
So, I still haven't gotten the courage to post that RL entry that I have been meaning to... maybe sometime this week...

But, I did want to post an entry about the BEST breakfast that I have ever had! This morning Mark & I woke up EXTREMELY early (for a Sunday) and picked my Mom up in Pearl City (as a semi-birthday breakfast for her) and drove all the way in to Kailua to eat breakfast at Boots & Kimo's - which is basically a small family-owned restaurant known for their amazing breakfasts.

We had heard about the line and the wait to get in (which on some weekends could be an hour or more) so we got there at 7:00am in an attempt to avoid the rush. When we got there, we were immediately glad we chose to come early, because we were able to get THE LAST booth in the restaurant! :)

Boots & Kimo's is known for their macadamia nut sauce that they pour over their pancakes and so my Mom & I decided to split an order and we each ordered our own omelettes... I got an egg white omelette with mushroom and Haleakala swiss cheese and Mom got the seafood omelette. Mark got his own order of pancakes and a corned beef and swiss omelette.

Oh.My.God. It was the most fabulous thing ever!! My Mom LOVED the food - so much, in fact that she ranks it as her third best eating experience ever! :) It was a great way to celebrate her birthday and to try someplace new. :)

The banana macadamia nut pancakes were TO-DIE-FOR!!
The pancakes were fluffy and tasty and the mac nut sauce was sweet, but not too heavy, and went
perfectly with the pancakes!! The best pancakes I have ever had - hands down!!

My egg-white mushroom & Haleakala swiss cheese omelette - SO delicious!
What was the most amazing thing was the swiss cheese - that really made it delicious!!

Mark with his corned beef and swiss omelette!! :)

My Mom loved the food so much she said she was taking each of us
back there for our birthdays this year! :)

Outside Boots & Kimo's... the food was so good that we will probably be back soon!!

Hope you're all having a nice weekend!! I'm off to try to shake this food coma... :P Hugs!!

That food looks so good!! I am almost drooling here. Mark's omelette looks as big as the plate!! (And I still keep looking for a yogurt place around here with peanut butter sauce.)

Awww, thanks, Andrea!! And Mark's omelette was HUGE!! I was surprised that he finished his entire plate plus his plate of pancakes (and still said he could eat more!!) It was delicious!!

But yeah, no peanut butter sauce anywhere here too... and believe me,... I've looked. :(

There's some restaurant I saw on the Travel Channel that featured ManCakes - which was a stack of three 13-inch pancakes! I want to try that, but highly doubt I could finish them. They come topped with fruit. Looked SO good.

A new yogurt place opened up in the mall, but still no peanut butter sauce - or even mochi.

Haha!! Mark would be all over those Mancakes!! :)

No peanut butter sauce OR mochi?? Drat. :(

Joe would be all over those mancakes too! They have the coolest restaurants on that channel - but none of them are near here. (But that might be a good thing!)

Yeah, no peanut butter or mochi. I don't even think they had M&Ms as toppings... needless to say we won't be going back to that one.

Heeheehee... with no peanut butter sauce or mochi - why bother? ;)

Sheri: Sheri Mangashutterbug93 on July 13th, 2009 03:51 pm (UTC)
Ahaha!! It's hard to tell that there are actually pancakes under there! :D But it was delicious and not as sweet and heavy as it may look... the sauce was just perfect for the pancakes... just sweet and light enough - beats maple syrup anyday!!
