Roy's is an interesting chain restaurant. We first discovered it when we went on a trip to Hawaii. I had just found out I was pregnant two days before the trip, so I wasn't able to drink alcohol or eat too much fish. I didn't care. I had a blast! My husband and I thought the food was fantastic.
After we returned to L.A., we were bummed to learn that there weren't any Roy's remotely near us. That changed a couple of years later, when one opened 10 minutes away from our house!
This was my daughter's first trip to Roy's! She had a blast. She learned a bunch of Hawaiian words and did her version of the hula! The kids' menu is pretty funny. It's a fixed price 3-course dinner which costs $13. For $13, your child can get pasta with butter and parmesan cheese (what a rip-off) or get short-ribs (what a bargain!). My daughter ordered the short-ribs and loved them!
We had a good time!
The favorite thing about my birthday? It was getting a homemade card from my daughter containing her own unique poetry. This is what the card said:
I love you lots.
You walk, but a dog runs.
Mice aren't very nice,
But you are,
And that is better than it is to be age 47 (crossed out and replaced with a 46, my actual age).
That gave me the biggest laugh of the weekend!
