Hawaii~Gulick Delicatessan

I haven't been to Gulick Delicatessen in years. Come to think about it, I am not sure if I have ever been there in my life. My parents were raving about the corned beef hash patty that they ate there, so Mike and I picked up lunch there on the way to visiting my grandpa. 
Look at all the choices. It was a bit overwhelming because there was a long line of people who knew what they wanted and knew the system of ordering. Mike and I were a bit lost with the hustle and bustle and ended up pointing at random food items to order. I'm sure if I had more time to take in all the signs and choices I would have ordered more items.
This was the plate I picked out for my grandpa.  He doesn't eat much nowadays but likes shrimp tempura and inari sushi.  I also ordered a couple of those hash patties my parents recommended. Plus my mom thought that Gulick adds some kind of starch to the patty so that it has an extra crunch, and I told her I'd taste it and tell her what I thought. (She thought that they added mochiko, but after Mike and I tasted it, we think it's just a standard hash patty that is fried in a lot of oil for a period of time so a crust forms on the surface). 
This is the plate that Mike ordered. I guess he likes his carbs! My grandpa ended up eating the vegetable tempura (which was great) because I was afraid that his appetite shrank and was glad to see him enjoying the food.
