first meal back home: serg's mexican kitchen & tropic rush

serg's mexican kitchen
2740 east manoa road
honolulu weekly

tropic rush
2919 kapiolani blvd.

came home for a wedding and wanted to try some new restaurants while i was here for this brief trip. went for mexican near manoa marketplace. it's no korean taco truck (no fusion here) but some welcome mexican in manoa. the flautas (a tortilla wrapped around a meat filling, fried) are the specialty, but they also have enchiladas, burritos, tacos and menudo (but that's only fridays and saturdays).

the outside of serg' was packed on a thursday evening.

our entire meal: echalote (sp?) corn covered in mayo and chili, with white cheese, a taco al pastor, the flautas, and a taco salad

for dessert, we went to the new tropic rush fro yo at market city (and they are about to open another location on kapahulu). it's just like yogurt land, but with a surfer-tropical theme. it's self serve fro yo (i think they had 10 or 12 flavors the day we were there) with fun tropical flavors like lychee-mango and passion fruit.
