If you drive along Nimitz Highway you may have noticed a few new eateries near the new Party City. Lyle and Russ check out a place that serves up bakery style sandwiches and pizzas. They're at La Tour Cafe, this week's Cheap Eats.
Open just a few months ago, La Tour has already built up a loyal following. They offer both traditional and non-traditional dishes like their Croque Monsieur with black forest ham, roasted tomatoes and gruyere cheese or their French Dip Sandwich and salad.
Keith Luke from Aina Haina says, "The Coque Monsieur is killer. A fancy grilled cheese sandwich but it's really, really good."
If you're looking for a break from the same ole lunch routine, La Tour's menu is loaded with selections you'll find, nowhere else.
"What's tops for you?" Russ asks.
Robert Nivera from Makiki says, "I have to say the Jalapeno Cheeseburger with the egg on top. The scary part about that is the word "jalapeno". Not too spicy, but just the right amount of kick."
One of the specialties down here at La Tour is their flat bread pizzas. Check out their Kalua Pork pizza with lomi tomatoes, taco sauce and sour cream or the Italian salami, mortadella, proccuitto, olives and arugula all baked in a 570 degree oven.
Lyle has the jalapeno bacon cheddar burger with an egg on top and Russ has the grilled vegetable Panini with grilled peppers, zucchini and spinach all covered with provolone cheese. That's how they do it down at La Tour Café, this week's Cheap Eats.
