Review & Giveaway: Islands Summertime Happy Hour $50 + Gift Set

Giveaway to go live 6/17/14

Last Friday, I attended the media tasting of Islands Fine Burgers & Drinks Summertime Happy Hour before they officially debut at all Islands Restaurant branches tomorrow, June 17, 2014.

You probably got to see some of the pictures I shared on my instagram and twitter account. You might have even drooled a little. I know.. I'm still thinking about them. Oh I'm getting weak. After I write this post, I'm going to invite the hubby to run to Islands Restaurant.(Checking the clock). Maybe I should just leave now... before the line gets really long at Islands. Focus girl.. focus!!


Check out what we ate and drunk for Happy Hour below and what I honestly thought about them. Also read about how you can win a beach cruiser and join the raffle giveaway for a chance to win an Islands Summertime gift set that contains a Beach Towel, a BBQ tool set and a $50 Islands Burgers gift card. Aloha! Let's say that again and now louder, ALOOOOHA!!!! Tell me you're not excited?!?


Before the giveaway though, let's talk about the food first.

Hawaiin sliders. Delish. Juicy burger patty slathered with teriyaki sauce topped with grilled pineapple on a soft bun. Comfort food. Messy yummy. I would love to have it at any hour, not just happy hour.


The Makaha Maggie cocktail. My favorite drink that night. This cocktail uses a tequila that's been infused with grilled pineapples sitting on it for 3 days. Grand Marnier, lemon & lime juice, fresh crushed pineapple & agave nectar with a cinnamon sugar rim that makes this drink even more special. Who knows how many times I mispelled this. Mahaka, Makana, right spelling, wrong spelling, you left a spell on me

Then there's the Hand Shaken Strawberry Daquiri. This drink is perfect for those who loves their drinks on the sweet side. And it's a perfect pair to counter the spiciness of the huge Heat Wave Burger. I found the heat wave burger a tad bit too spicy for my taste. But if you love heat, this is for you. And I highly recommend ordering their crispy onion strings to go with this. 




A must order, the Hapa Bourbon Tea. Everyone on our table agrees, this is a must order. It's my second favorite. But majority said this is their favorite. The Spicy Mango Shandy drink on the other hand has beer and cayenne pepper on it. This will be their official World Cup drink.


Then as if we're not full yet(but i'm not complaining, haha). They also served us the Wiqui Waqui Chicken Salad, this is part of their regular menu. But I can't believe I've never had this. I guess coz' we've always just ordered burgers whenever we head to Islands. It's really good. One of the top ten salads I've had to date.


And for my sweet tooth. We were lucky enough to finish our Happy Hour with desserts courtesy of the kind staff of Islands Redondo Beach. First off, Kona Pie, a mocha almond fudge ice cream & cookie crust topped w/chocolate fudge, whipped cream, roasted almonds & a cherryYummy but the Chocolate Lava was to die for - Fudge brownie topped w/vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, whipped cream, roasted almonds & a cherry. I said OMG, then look at everyone at our table. This is so good. Everyone put their forks in and agreed.



Try Islands Summertime Happy Hour. Or just head to Islands anytime for lunch or dinner and get a chance to win this beach cruiser. Each Islands Restaurant will be giving away a beach cruiser by the end of summer. Now for the giveaway. Join below for a chance to win an Islands Summertime Gift Set:
