Lunch at Shokudo and dinner at Roy's



Here are more pictures of the lunch and dinner we had on our second day at Honolulu.  Yes, more food to whet your palate.  Weather was fine, more or less like in Malaysia and not so humid but cool in the evening and can be chilly in the wee hours of the morning.  Lunch was at   Shokudo Japanese restaurant and I like the ambience there.  As we were quite early, there wasn't a big crowd but we had made a prior booking for a table.



Homemade tofu salad - drizzled with creamy sesame dressing and served with crispy wonton, nori and mixed greens.


Rainbow roll - California roll topped with avocado, tuna, yellowtail, shrimp and salmon



Bento combination - grilled salmon and chicken karaage - crispy chicken served with homemade spicy tartar sauce and rice.


Bento combination - fresh salmon and ahi(tuna) sashimi, salad, california and tuna sushi rolls.



Bento combination - fresh salmon and ahi (tuna) sashimi, california roll, tempura and grilled chicken terikayi.



Spider roll - soft shelled crab tempura with crab, mango, cucumber, burdock root and kalware spouts.



This is a highly recommended must have dessert to round up a sumptuous meal.  Honey toast - House speciality.  Thick Japanese white toast cut out, cubed, drizzled with honey and topped with vanilla ice cream.


Spacoius, neat and quiet ambience of Shokudo Japanese restaurant.



So much for lunch and let me introduce you guys to Ko'Olina Gof Club, Kapolei, just a short drive from Honolulu to dine at Roy's.







Breath taking  view of the golf club from the dining area.  As you can see, the Ko'Olina Golf Club is well maintained with good greens.


And here comes the goodies.......



Roy's Fusion Sampler - China town Chicken Spring Roll, Blackened Island Ahi (tuna) and Mongolian Baby Back Rib, followed by ....



Entree - Macademia Nut Crusted Fish of the Day

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.
