For all you foodies out there, some welcome news from the Halekulani in Waikiki. Orchids Restaurant has just announced a new lunch and dinner menu by Executive Chef Vikram Garg and Chef de Cuisine Darryl Fujita.
The new menu features a wide selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts while preserving three of Orchids signature dishes:
Steamed Oriental Onaga 'Orchids Style'
Manoa Butter Lettuce Salad
Halekulani Coconut Cake
I had the chance to look at the new menu (thanks for sending the press release Erika!) and I would say my top three picks on the new menu would be:
Big Island Goat Cheese with Kalamata Olive Cake, Tomato and Macadamia Nut Chutney
Lobster and Crab Burger with Sambal Aioli, Pickled Cucumber and Dill Parmesan Fries
Kumamoto Oysters with Japanese Cucumber and Yuzu Dressing
The menu has been designed to celebrate contemporary seafood and there are some amazing items to choose from, with modern flavors and local produce.
For more information about the Halekulani or to make a reservation at Orchids, visit their website. I am looking forward to Sunday Brunch on my next trip!
