As the deadline for insurance sign ups hits, President Obama Sunday evening headed directly to his favorite sushi hangout in Honolulu, Morimoto Waikiki, presumably for some of Chef Morimoto’s famous sliced fish.
Obama goes there every year soon after his arrival in paradise.
The president is an utter creature of habit. Every vacation it’s the same stuff – one trip to the beach, one trip to a bookstore, one trip for ice cream, a bike outing and, every other day, a round of golf. Nice, comfortable, familiar.
Morimoto’s is not for the middle class. The sushi combination platter starts at a bare bones plate of $40 and and heads up in $40 increments to $160.
Poor press pool. Had to cool their heels at the Outback Steakhouse.
