Came off of an 11 hour flight from NY, showered and headed straight to Alan Wong's. We were an hour late for our reservation but we called from the airport and they kindly moved it to 9pm. It was so nice to be at a high end restaurant enjoying wine and clean linens after a long journey.
Food was delicious. The Nori Wrapped Tempura Ahi was one of the most amazing things that we ate on our trip to Oahu. The tempura batter was extremely light and the ahi was very tender. The sauce MADE the dish. We loved it so much that we soaked it all up with our bread.
For entrees, I had the Ginger Crusted Onaga Snapper. This is one of their signature dishes and we can totally see why! The flavor and texture combinations were amazing. I took the leftovers home and it was just as good the second day.
My husband had the short-rib and this is where 5 stars became 4 for me. Granted, he liked it but for one of the most amazing chefs in the world, I would have expected a slightly more tender, melt in your mouth short-rib.
The parmesan garlic mashed potatoes that comes with the meal is a must!
