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.

Assam Prawns ~ 亚参虾

Assam Prawns is a popular Malaysian dish which is not difficult to whip up.  The two main ingredients in this dish are the prawns and tamarind paste or what we call, 'assam'.  Tamarind does pair well with seafood, they complement each other and prawns cooked in this way is incredibly delicious and appetising.  Yum is the word for it!

Cherry Loaf Cake ~ 樱桃蛋糕

I baked this old-fashioned Cherry Loaf using the Marble Butter cake recipe but adjusted the recipe as I only used three eggs instead of four to fit into the loaf pan.   I remember that when I was little, I was attracted by the red cherries as any other kid and would gingerly take them out and eat them first.    The cake was secondary.  This cake is soft and moist infused with the sweet glace cherries giving it a lovely combination of flavours.
