Threepeat: President visits same restaurants on this year's vacation as last year's...
After a day of golf, President Obama on Friday night had a long, late dinner in Waikiki, spending more than 3 1/2 hours at Nobu restaurant. Joined by First Lady Obama and an unidentified group of friends, the President arrived at the "perennially hip" Waikiki Parc Hotel at 8:35 PM, home to Nobu, which bills itself as "yet another canvas for Chef Nobu Matsuhisa to display his legendary dishes." The closed-off streets around the hotel filled with excited crowds as word of the President's presence spread through Waikiki.
President Obama likes the the chef's canvas: Nobu was his first dining outing of 2012, when he had dinner there with Mrs. Obama last New Year's Day. The visit makes the President's dining excursions for this year's vacation a threepeat from last year's vacation. During both island getaways, he also dined at Alan Wong's restaurant and dined at Morimoto. Mr. Obama had his annual shave ice run on Thursday, so he's now hit all his favorite hotspots before he leaves for Washington late on Saturday night.
Nobu's pricey menu offers raw and cooked seafood and beef, "Nobu Style," with cold delights such as Nobu Style Sashimi Tacos, Lobster Salad with Spicy Lemon Dressing, Bigeye and Blue Fin Toro. Cooked dishes include Black Cod Saikyo Miso, Squid 'Pasta' with Light Garlic Sauce, Blue Fin Toro Tabanyaki, and Beef Tenderloin. Entrees range in price from $23 to $48, with the Blue Fin going for a much higher market price. Appetizers are between $6 and $25...

Fattening up in a tropical paradise while victims of Hurricane Sandy starve and freeze to death but they did get a form letter.
A real POS. Makes me sick.
Chili for me. And I would rather eat nothing for dinner than dine with Zero the neo-marxist.
Campbells chunky potato soup with ham and Ritz crackers with some Mexican Velveeta.
In honor of NumberOneFantasticSuperMacDaddy’s vacation to Haveye-eeee, we had Spam and Mac’N’Cheese....
President Zero dines sumptuously in Hawaii while his subjects freeze from the results of Hurricane Sandy.
in other news reports, Nero fiddled while Rome burned. If it was good enough for Nero, says Zero...
It would’ve been much easier, nicer, and less inconvenience if they had brought the chef to the Presidential residence instead.
what the hell is Mexican Velveeta? Jalapenos and Picante Sauce in that big old block of room temperature Velveeta?
“The closed-off streets around the hotel filled with excited crowds as word of the President’s presence spread through Waikiki.”
The Rock Star president. Short on substance, but big on the “idol” thing. Miss “W” yet?
You can buy Velveeta with Jalapenos. It isn’t much, but I’ve been known to spend 2 days up a tree living on vienna sausage and granola bars. Sooner or later, if you sit really still, even the smartest big buck will forget you are there!
I guess it doesn’t take much to draw a crowd in Hawaii.
Why would anyone want to see the ugliest couple to ever step into the White House.
I had middle eastern food last night. Just getting prepared for the future.
we had omelets
perhaps someday that fact will cause our surrounding streets to fill with excited people
The “excited” crowds were probably pissed their vacations were imposed upon by his excellency and motorcade.
Article reads like an episode of Lifestyles if the Rich and Famous.
Vacation is supposed to be about family. He makes everything politics. Feel sorry for the kids. Oh nevermind....they’re with Grandma.
Of course, no problem for Emperor Obamugabe & his consort, The First Grifter, with his taxpayer-provided salary & perks.
Tuna casserole. Meat is practically out of the question.
Great comment. Thanks.
Restaurant dining in HI is outrageously expensive. We’ve been there, but we always bought fresh fish and produce at the grocery and prepared our own meals. Easily cut the cost of the trip in half.
That is not exactly terrible prices. I mean those prices are normal in many places in Annapolis Maryland. I am not impressed Mr. President. I took my family to eat on the Eiffel Tower and spent over 900 dollars for six.
“Meanwhile, we had Campbell’s soup for dinner. You? “
Potato & cheese pierogies. A buck at Dollar Tree. When dining out, it’s either a bean burrito at Taco Bell or eggs & hash browns at Waffle House.
We had sloppy joes, rice and veggies with dip. Cake later. But we were all together, in good health, and did have some food on the table and some left in the pantry. We’re good. Maybe in better shape emotionally and spiritually than the Obamas.
All the fancy feasts in the world won’t fill a hole in your soul.
I know a lot of deals happen on the golf course and I've thought for a long time that THAT was the reason for zero to get away from eyes and ears .. but I'm not so sure now.
Is there a drug problem (f'rinstance) that impels one to be overly active? speed?
Your ol'lady pisses you off?
'meetings' in the locker room?
These nobama parasites aren’t entertaining. They both should be in a SuperMax prison for the rest of their worthless, destructive lives.
George Bush never would set foot in a nobu or had a vacation in Hawaii on the taxpayers dime...and he is called as elitist...the media Hollywood information complex needs an adjustment...
I guess it goes to show you. You learn something every day. BTW, I’m still wondering just what the heck is in Velveeta (those big blocks in a box) that allows them to store nearly forever at room temperature.
Don’t know, but I keep a block of it and plenty of crackers right next to the computer. If I don’t have something substantial in my stomach when I take my meds I can really get messed up.
Last night I did a great stirfry, with chicken, lots of veggies, and eye-wateringly hot Szechuan sauce. I’m sure it was better than any of the crap the Obamas ate at that restaurant, and so is just about all of the food mentioned in this thread.
Sorry for being crass, but I imagine it’s a “moveable glory hole” kind of deal.
Now that Reggie Love and Kal Penn have been banished from the White Hut by Mooch...A feller’s got to get his lovin’ somewhere.
Of course it does. Just another fab chapter in Prezee Kardashian’s life.
My favs are the “style” articles on that sow Moochelle. Yes, it’s now true....painting your long, hideous toe nails puke green/yellow is “fashion forward”. She dresses like a fat clown....yet is shoved down our throats as some kind of new “Jackie O”. My God, the media have sold out completely.
The Rock Star president. Short on substance, but big on the idol thing. Miss W yet?
I miss Carter
I had hot dogs and sauerkraut.
Bowl of limas and a ham hock here.
Splurged ... couple of tacos from Taco Bell and an iced coffee, half of which is still in the fridge.
Obamas Golfing Buddies
Sloppy Joes are one of my favorites but my wife isn’t big on them. Once in a while I’ll make myself some and just eat a couple sandwiches here and there. Every blue moon we go about an hour north to a town called Muenster and buy delicious steaks. They raise the beef on the premises.
Somehow, I think their cuisine, vacations, and wine selections have improved somewhat from the days when they had to pay for it themselves!
I don’t know about you, but I’m going to enjoy ‘reparations’.
