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


Honey Mustard Grilled  Beef Shortrib.  The purple stuff is Poi, mashed taro, Hawaiian food.




Hibachi Styled Grilled Salmon that came with rice.



Dessert - Roy's Melting Chocolate Souffle
and

All of us enjoyed this dinner tremendously and left Roy's, fully satiated!  Would certainly like to visit them again ...... mmmm, don't know when!!

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Ondeh Ondeh Pandan Cupcakes ~ 香兰小蛋糕

Ondeh Ondeh are green coloured and pandan flavoured glutinous rice balls with gula melaka or palm sugar filling, coated with freshly grated coconut.  We call it 'Kuih'.  Ondeh Ondeh cake is entirely different from this 'Kuih'.
I don't know how the name 'Ondeh Ondeh cake' came about but I guess it's because of the colour and the ingredients which are somewhat similar to that of the 'kuih'.
This pandan flavoured Ondeh Ondeh cupcake is moist, soft and slightly spongy and the gula melaka filling blends awfully well with the pandan and 'santan'/coconut milk.  A wonderful tea-time snack or a delectable dessert, any time!
