When Jenn wrote about her latest trip to Hawaii and the deliciousness that is plate lunch, I was reminded of an Atlanta eatery that serves just that. I had been there a few years back and always said I’d eat there again, but it’s so far from my house that I haven’t been since. Today, however, when I found myself in Decatur and with a rumble in my tummy I knew exactly what would fill it up.
Waikikie Hawaiian BBQ is located near Emory’s campus. Foxy and I arrived to an empty dining room, but by the time we left it was pretty packed.
I had the plate lunch that consisted of BBQ beef and fried fish. It also came with steamed rice, house salad and macaroni salad. I’ve had plate lunch in Hawaii and I can honestly say this tasted just as good. I pretty much wolfed it down. It was tasty! The fish was crisp and had a decent amount of seasoning. The beef wasn’t too wet and had a few onions thrown in. It was served on a bed of cabbage and I ate that too!
I wish Waikikie were a little closer to my house. I can see that I’m gonna be jonesin for it. Perhaps next week I’ll go to Stone Mountain for some exercise and then hit it up for lunch afterwards. Yeah, that’s the ticket!
