A couple of months back, she said that she wanted to go to her favorite restaurant, "Orchids" at the Halekulani hotel. Apparently Mike's aunty frequently dines there because every staff member at the restaurant and the valets knew her by first name. Wow! I guess Mike and I do not frequent places enough for staff to know us.
I ate the Onaga "Orchids Style" which was cooked Chinese style with shiitake mushrooms, green onion, cilantro, and soy sauce and seasame oil. The fish was cooked perfectly and I ate it all up!
Lilikoi and Chocolate bar Bar with mango coulis, and coconut ice cream. The plate was also dressed with orange peel like pieces, which were actualy lilikoi gelee (yum!) and toasted macademia nuts.
I can see why Orchids is Mike's aunty's favorite restaurant. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. I do not think that Mike and I will be frequenting Orchids with our current budget, but maybe one day in the far far future...
