What is vacation with my girl without a FABULOUS dinner night out? We love to find an amazing place to eat a FABULOUS meal. And, I have to brag, we nailed it again!
WARM PECAN CRUSTED GOAT CHEESE AND BABY ARUGULA SALAD
Asian pears, oven roasted hana baby beets, poha berry honey-mustard dressing
So fabulous that Bailie wanted bites of mine over her favorite salad (she can eat a variation of caprese salad every day)
BUFALA TOMATO SALAD
Olowalu tomatoes, bufala mozzarella, maui onion, fresh basil, truffle oil, aged balsamic vinaigrette, alziari extra virgin olive oil with black kilauea sea salt
Surprisingly, she even finished her tomatoes.
SEA BASS SPECIAL
Grilled tiger prawn, panko parmesan crusted sea bass, kula corn risotto, chipotle champagne beurre blanc
As much as I was looking forward to the mahi mahi, our waiter Michael recommended the sea bass special. I trusted his judgement. It was delicious although I wonder if I would have liked the mahi better since I prefer mahi to sea bass. Maybe I will just have to take another vacation to see.
ALL NATURAL SNAKE RIVER FARMS KUROBUTA PORK CHOP
All natural american pork, herbed mashed potatoes, pickled red cabbage and apples, pomegranate demi-glace
She finished her mashed potatoes cold this morning after breakfast…that’s how good they were.
We also ordered a “local farm” side:
ROASTED BABY BEETS — White balsamic vinegar, mirin and chili glaze
All paired with a glass of 2008 Peachy Canyon Westside Zinfandel (100% Zin). Winemakers Notes: Aromas of dark berry, vanilla, toasty oak, hint of menthol, hint of forest floor. Tastes of a round mouthfeel with good bright acidity, sweet dark fruit, caramel, hint of smokiness, long juicy finish.
TRIPLE BERRY PIE
A signature dessert; a luscious combination of raspberries, blueberries and black currants nestled in a light flaky crust set on whipped cream
Dessert is still to be eaten – a treat on our flight home. We were just too full to eat it last night. Thought about eating it for breakfast, however didn’t want to be rude to the rest of the family by not sharing a single bite.
