Did you know Giuseppe’s (2428 Honolulu Ave.) won the Taster’s Choice Award for the 2014 Rose Float fundraiser meatball tasting competition? I caught up with owner Alex and found out the recipe is his moms and has been in the family 40 years. One of the secret ingredients is imported pecorino cheese that is grated off the wheel. Add that to Valdo’s amazing sauce and you’ve got a winner. They have a must try new crispy pizza dough too from an Italian chef!
Need to work those meatballs off? Join Diane Hedrick, certified fitness instructor, for her famous Zumba classes at Revolution Dance Studio (2509 Honolulu Ave.) Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 9 a.m. The classes have quite a following and your first class is free.
