|Specials on June 16, 2011|
While The Alley's signature dishes include their Tasty Chicken ($6.95 bowl; $8.95 plate) and their Lemon Crunch Cake ($4.75/slice), I opted for one of their seafood specials: their Salmon Dynamite plate ($14.75). I got three fillets of baked salmon, each topped with warm crab/mayonnaise concoction, sriracha, and furikake. I got two scoops of brown rice and tossed salad with a soy/sesame dressing.

The brown rice was cooked nicely, not much more to say on that.
The salad greens were fresh, and I enjoyed the soy-sesame creamy dressing. This Asian dressing had a wonderful salty, sweet, and creamy flavor blend that touched all the taste buds. I thought the chef perfectly dressed the salad (not overdressed or underdressed).
As much as I wanted to save a portion of the meal for the next day, the salmon was too good and I gobbled it down in no time.
Even better, you can get The Alley Mix Plate, getting two of the plate lunch items (except the specials, fried pork chops, pulehu steak, and Asian braised pork). The price depends on the entree choices.
I love the food here. Yes, the food can get a bit pricey, but heck, The Alley (basically in a bowling alley) serves better food than at most restaurants I've been to. The food blew me away with wonderful flavors, and you can bet I'll be back for more! 9/10
