Duke's Huntington Beach
We were on the waterfront at the Huntington Beach Pier.
And to make it an extravagant evening at it's finest we were dining at Duke's. Some may brush this off as the name of a place where to fill up while enjoying the sunset and surfers slide into the waves. But to some Duke's is worth going because of who Duke is. He is one of Hawaii's most notable...he is the "Father of International Surfing."
He won an Olympic Gold Medal at only 21 years old. And beyond surfing he has also gained fame for being a competitive swimmer. The hall of Fame has seen him twice for swimming and surfing.
A creed he started is still practiced. To greet friends, loved ones and strangers with Aloha, which means with love.
And the food also is made with some love. From every type of fresh fish spiced up to most any way you can imagine you will leave content and feel the same in the classy beach house atmosphere. And when it comes to deserts...don't be afraid to try them all. It's just science that if there are five people, you need five deserts. Right? And that of course includes the hula pie...beware you may break out in dance after indulging!
