I'm not a fancy writer... just a girl that likes a good drink.


Roy's - Downtown

Someone recently told me that Roy's has some amazing Lobster Potstickers, so this place has been sitting pretty high on my "Places-To-Go" list. And then when my foodie friend, Minty wanted to go to happy hour, I quickly mentioned this place. Well, the Potstickers were quite good. Actually, my favorite of the night. The whole HH menu consisted of $5 food plates and drinks. And not just 3-4 selected drinks, but any Hawaiian Specialty Cocktail on their menu. There was probably about 15 - 20 to choose from! But if you aren't a cocktail person, they also offered four different wines.  

I went with the 1988 Martini and the Basil Cucumber Collins. The 1988 Martini is a blend of grapefruit and pomegranate juice with ABSOLUT Ruby Red Vodka, SOHO Lychee Liquer and PatrĂ²n CitrĂ²nge Liqueur. My favorite... so I had two!

The Basil Cucumber Collins is cucumber vodka muddled with basil,fresh lime juice and topped with club soda. It was nice and refreshing.

For food, they offered 6 different plates so we ordered one of each to share.  To our dismay, they were out of the Wagyu Beef Sliders served with the Garlic Truffle Sweet Potato Fries. So we had:
-Lobster Potstickers - my favorite of the night.
-Lobster California Rolls - They were good.
-Tempura Crusted - Eh. They were okay.
-Chicken Lettuce Wraps - Wasn't a huge fan, but Minty liked them.
-Pork and Shrimp Shu Mai - I didn't care for them really. I think they were fried a bit too long.
All HH items and drinks are $5.
