Hawaii Restaurants – Kincaid’s in Honolulu

During the summer of 2007 I was vacationing in Hawaii with my in-laws and we happened to be shopping at one of the shopping centers in Honolulu. We had a joyous time and found many treasures to bring back with us to the states. Yet our main desire was to find a Restaurant that could satisfy our American taste buds.

We ended up choosing to dine at a restaurant that was recommended by one of the retail shop’s sales clerk. She said that the Kincaid’s restaurant serves up some delicious seafood as well as steaks and salads. We were excited to experience what a Hawaiian restaurant would offer as far as taste and ambiance.

Well time for my report, most restaurants in Hawaii make really dry crumbly crab cakes with more cake than crab. Kincaid’s is definitely on that list! The crab cakes were served with a sweet and sour sauce and a ketchup based sauce. It would have been nice to have been able to try both sauces separately, but I guess for presentation’s sake, they plated the sauces together and they eventually mixed. YUCK! Skip the dry crumbly crab cakes and go straight to the baby back ribs! Delicious! A sweet surprise comes with those ribs too– sweet potato fries. The taste was very unique and addicting.

I also enjoyed the location of Kincaid’s because it has a perfect view of the ocean. Very serene. While the restaurant itself was pleasing to the eye, the service however, was so-so. Overall my Hawaii restaurant experience proved to be above average and I was pretty satisfied with the Kincaid’s restaurant. I do recommend them for any American looking to experience Hawaii dining.

Investing in Restaurants – Taking the Time to Understand the Investment

Money is tight; there is no getting around that fact. Banks are being careful and investors are watching how they use their funds. This does not mean that investors are not investing. It only means that they are taking a look at how they are investing. The options are so vast in today’s world that there can be an information overload issue for many investors. One popular way to invest is by investing in restaurants. This may seem like an odd way to invest money but there are many that are doing just that.

Investing in restaurants should be done by someone who understands how a good restaurant works. This does not mean the investor needs to be at the restaurant running the day to day operations. It is wise to understand how your investment works and how you make money. This is important with any investment that you make. Taking some time to understand how a restaurant functions and profits is the best way to ensure that you are making a wise investment. You will want to outline what it is you expect to gain from the investment and in what time frame before you proceed.

It may seem like investing in something that revolves around entertaining would be a bad idea in a tight economy. Restaurant ownership is fast becoming very popular among many. There are many investing in restaurants today that are cutting edge and a passion for those foodies in the world. The concept of food and how it brings people together has become something of great value and many are deciding that they should take full advantage of this popularity.

This does not mean you should just jump right into investing in restaurants with no knowledge of what a restaurant takes to run. Doing your homework on how popular restaurants stay at the top of the list is very important before making any investment. You may want to take some time to talk with other investors and see what their experience has been. Taking the time to learn from their mistakes may save you valuable time and money. You may even want to consider what type of investment you want to make into restaurants. Is your interest to start your own restaurant or do you simply want to become a financial investor letting others run the restaurant and allowing you to collect a portion of profits?
