Good Eats In Hawaii Part III
May 23, 2017 and May 24, 2017
The last night in Maui, we went back to Leilani’s On The Beach. I gave the chef’s tasting menu and a try.
The appetitzer I chose was the Kalua Pork Spring Rolls. It came with this soy sauce with a hint of wasabi. I enjoyed it. Crispy rolls and very tasty.
My entree was the Parmesan Crustd Hawaiian Catch with a bed of rice and lemon caper beurre blac sauce. The fish was mong chong I believe. It’s a very smooth fish. It was cooked very well.
After Maui, we headed to Oaui. We usually stay in the tourist area of Waikiki. I like the hustle and bustle of Waikiki.
We arrived late afternoon around 2 p.m. There’s a permanent food struck area across the street from our hotel, Embassy Suites.
I had a Korean bulgogi rice bowl. Just average. They had ramen as well. The ramen looked better. At this location, there are plenty of other food trucks located in this area called Pau Hana Market Waikiki.
Dinner took us to the new International Market Place. It used to be this old outdoor market where everyone had a stall to still their goods. I would compare it a huge flee market. There was this huge banyan tree that provided shade througout the market place. Well, times have changed, now no longer an outdoor flee market, but a mid-size mall, achored by Saks Fifth Avenue and a bunch of new restaurants.
We ate at Eating Hose 1849 by Roy Yamaguchi. I love Roy’s Waikiki, and I got there at least once for dinner each time I’m in Oahu. The Eating House was a more casual atomosphere than Roy’s Waikiki. Service was just average. I felt the place was not very welcoming from the wait staff.
Food was above average. The menu is not as extensive as Roy’s, but I think it has enough choices where everyone is able to choose something.
I had the Fisherman’s Style Sausage Crusted Local Catch. I can’t recall the fish. Possibly a Mahi Mahi. It was served with a crab fried rice. The crust on the fish was unqiue, but I liked it. I also enjoyed the friend rice.
Mom had the Tavern Style Fried Chicken.
Dad had the Misoyaki Butterfish Kamameshi. The description says Korean style. I don’t recally my dad liking this dish, not because it didn’t taste good, bur because it just was not his cup of tea.
I can’t remember what my brother ordered, but here’s his food!
