Aiea Bowl

I’ve been hearing all about the food and desserts at Aiea Bowl. I went on a Friday night after dinner so unfortunately was too stuffed to try any of the real food (everyone was ordering the fried chicken, need to try that and the oxtail soup next time I am there) but there is always room in my belly for more dessert :)

We started with a slice of carrot cake ($6 or 7 for a ginormous slice) – it was a sharp contrast to Ted’s Bakery. While Ted’s is smooth and almost textureless (in a good way, it blends well with the frosting), Aiea Bowl’s has distinct texture with the shreds of carrot and large walnut chunks. It was a 3 layer cake with a very thin schmear of frosting between layers.
Then we tried the lemon crunch cake – light lemon cake with a lemon curd layer, and creamy whipped cream frosting sprinkled with graham cracker crumbs. This was good but not as good as the carrot cake (and possibly not even as good as the Costco lemon cooler cake, which I am currently obsessed with).

Hi there -- love your food comments, very astute, original, fun. Someone who loves food and doesn't mind admitting to it. :)
But I see loads of plastic packaging surrounding your food -- does that not worry you? All this packaging that gets used just once? Surely, there must be a less wasteful way of getting food from the counter to the customer...
How about bringing along your own container? Would they let you do that?
