Just returned from Honolulu. Thank you for the archived suggestions. We ate very well!

Chai's Island Bistro - The Pita Bread and Peanut Sauce appetizer was tasty as were the Thai Chicken Spring Rolls with Cucumber Salad. My BF's Braised Kurobuta Pork Osso Bucco was delicious. I did not care for my Pan Roasted Chicken with Vegetable Jus as it was very bland. Nothing on the dessert menu called our name so we retired to our room with two huge chocolate chip cookies.

Giovanni's Shrimp Truck - The Shrimp Scampi was worth the drive to north shore. It is garlicky, well-seasoned heaven on a plate!

Matsumoto's Shave Ice - The coconut/banan/guava combination I ordered was too sweet for my taste! BF's orange/pineapple/coconut was better.

Neiman Marcus - Thai Red Curry Butternut Squash Soup with Tempura Shrimp was delicious as was BF's Barbecued Tiger Prawns with Shaved Fennel and Beet Salad. We both really enjoyed the Crostini with Shrimp Salad and Kurobuta Pork Chop Stuffed with Smoked Mozzarella and Prosciutto. Alas, we had no room for dessert.

House Without A Key - Lunch was very good. We started with the Coconut Shrimp, Lemongrass Beef and Seafood Spring Roll Platter. BF had Alaskan Crab Meat Salad with Avocado and Bacon on Whole Wheat Bread. I had a Club Sandwich.

Genki Sushi - We really liked the Tempura Shrimp and Crab Mayo Rolls!

Sarento's - Very tasty, indeed. We started with Calamari Fritti with Tomato-Caper Sauce and Roasted Garlic Aioli. I had Pan Roasted Opakapaka with Jumbo Lump Crab, Lemon Butter and Watercress Salad. BF did not care for his Pappardelle Bolognese.

Longhi's - Very tasty BLT's with well-done fries were a fine lunch on our last day!

    Still, mahalo for your efforts,
