Grind Time: Fuel up at Tucker & Bevvy
BY JASON GENEGABUS / firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking for a stress-free way to holoholo in Waikiki?
Make it a day trip to the Diamond Head end of Kalakaua Avenue, where metered stalls near the Honolulu Zoo and Kapiolani Park make it a little easier to park your car, and a new sandwich and smoothie shop will save you the hassle of packing a lunch.
Just outside the entrance to the lobby of the Park Shore Hotel, Tucker & Bevvy claims a Kalakaua Avenue address but is actually on Kapahulu Avenue between the Park Shore and the stairs leading up to Lulus Waikiki.
Honolulu-born Cecily Sargent and her husband, Sydney-born Tony Sargent, opened the place a few months ago with the goal of feeding the beach with fresh juices, smoothies and a variety of picnic food.
Sandwiches, salads and sides are prepackaged and ready to grab and go. Fresh-roasted turkey with cranberry and roast beef with havarti cheese sandwiches, granola shards, sesame beets, lemon couscous, kale salad and gelato from La Gelateria were all in the cold case during a recent visit.
Got a little time to wait? Order a pastrami reuben, ham and gruyere cheese or Veggie Stack panini and a fresh-fruit smoothie or the Mean Green Juice made with kale, broccoli, celery, cucumber, parsley, cilantro, lemon, ginger and lots of green apple.
Tucker & Bevvy is at 2586 Kalakaua Ave. Call (808) 922-0099 or follow them on Twitter.
