Hawaii Mom Blog: Monkeypod Kitchen - Ko Olina

Monkeypod Kitchen - Ko Olina

After seeing @melissa808's Instagram photos of Monkeypod Kitchen in Ko Olina, I knew it was the perfect place to celebrate our friend's birthday.

We made reservations for 5:30pm, but my husband and I arrived a little early and got seated before Happy Hour ended at 5:30pm, and our server didn't hesitate to tell us we had 5 minutes left to take advantage of the Happy Hour prices.

Therefore we ordered:

Garlic Truffle Oil Fries - these were really good.

Hamakua Wild Mushroom Pizza - this was delicious as well.

Pumpkin Patch Ravioli - I ended up eating this for my dinner since I was getting full from the appetizers.  This was REALLY good. 
For dinner, my husband ordered the Organic Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi.  I gave it a taste since I love Mahi, and this was very delicious.
Fresh Island Fish Sandwich
Chef Peter Merriman's Nightly Upcountry Special

Pete's Classic Burger
Turkey Burger (the photos don't do the burgers/sandwich justice - they were HUGE!)
We were all too full for dessert, but the birthday boy received a complimentary Chocolate Cream Pie.

Service was fantastic (our server was awesome - she was super friendly and helpful) and the food was delicious.  The ambience was really nice, and there was great live music being played outdoors.

For me, the only thing that was a bit of a disappointment was the lack of desserts (only offered were pies and gelato), but that won't stop me from making another visit.
