We loved this! The sweet potatoes were super creamy and the pork had a good flavor. The greens added a nice crunch. It was a light dish and easy to eat.

Lomi Lomi Salmon with Tomatoes, Onions, Salmon Roe, Yuzu-Mayonnaise, and Yucca Chips – $6.00

This had a very attractive presentation. The salmon is tasty. The yucca chips are sturdy for scooping, like a salmon poke bowl. There was a little too much lime juice, but it was fresh and not too fishy. Overall, this was good, but our least favorite of the three dishes.

Haupia: Hawaiian Coconut Pudding with Candied Macadamia Nuts and Coconut – $4.50

This was light and airy. There’s a vanilla sponge cake on the bottom and then the coconut pudding is on top. It was very tropical and the sprinkle of nuts on top added a nice crunch to the dessert.

Kona Brewing Co. Mai Time Wheat Ale, Kailua-Kona, HI (4.9% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 oz., $9.00 for 12 oz.

Untappd describes this beer as “a refreshing, bright wheat ale inspired by the classic Mai Tai cocktail. Brewed with real pineapple, orange and lime.”

Florida Orange Groves Sparkling Pineapple Wine, St. Petersburg, FL ($30/bottle) – $12.00

From Florida Orange Groves Winery: “Our sparkling Pineapple wine offers you and your palate a crisp and refreshing taste of Florida in a bottle. Made from 100% pineapple juice you won’t need to imagine hints of flavors or finishing notes.”

Melon Breeze with Spiced Rum – $14.00

The Melon Breeze was just all right. If you like Midori, you’ll like this. It’s a little sour, and ours was fairly strong. The melon taste comes purely from the Midori. We can taste the spiced rum and maybe some lemon. It’s a straightforward drink.
