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

Vietnamese Caramelised Chicken ~ 越南焦糖鸡

This is a quickie and delicious chicken dish, braised in caramelised sauce.  The ingredients are not too difficult to find and if you can't find kaffir lime leaves, you can omit them altogether.  This dish serves well with white rice and a side veggie dish.  Try it!

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
