2018/11/29 Ohahu Fine Dining #4: Maru Zushi
π 2018-11-29 01:01 in Dining
Since we were in Ohahu for a few days, and there were lots of good restaurants in Waikiki where we were staying, Jennifer lined up nice restaurants for us every night.
Night #4 was Maru Zushi, another very good Tokyo Ginza like sushi tasting menu with more dishes than we were able to count:

Night #3 was Senia, a custom tasting menu at the chef's counter. It had plenty of food, but when I saw a bone marrow dish go by that seemed very tasty, I added that to our tasting :)

Night #2 was Chef Mavro, a French-like 9 course tasting menu with Hawaiin Flair. It wasn't bad :)

Since we were in Ohahu for a few days, and there were lots of good restaurants in Waikiki where we were staying, Jennifer lined up nice restaurants for us every night.
Night #1 was Sushi Sho, a Tokyo Ginza like master sushi restaurant. It was around 20 courses and they were yummy :)











Oh yeah, we also took the 8 course sake sampler, and the portions were generous :)

2018/11/20 Jennifer 44th Birthday Dinner at Manresa
π 2018-11-20 01:01 in Dining
Since last time we went it was 8 years ago, time flies. Since then, they picked up a 3rd Michelin star and raised their prices accordingly ;)

Last time I think I was not impressed because it wasn't the typical french tasting menu I was used to, but also because the service was quite slow and the whole dinner took 4H, which is just too long in my book. This time it was better timed, and some of the dishes that I was less impressed with were replaced by new ones that were all quite tasty with multiple levels of flavaours.
The wine pairing cost arond $250, which clearly wasn't cheap. Jennifer was ok with it, but I think she would have appreciated more red wines, even if a good amount of dishes we had were better paired with white.


we started with what looked like macaroons with pate de fruits, but were actually salted
