Hawaii Mom Blog: Celebrate with Arancino at the Kahala!




July 3, 2014

Celebrate with Arancino at the Kahala!

I love celebrations!  Especially ones with food so when Arancino at The Kahala brought in A5 Miyazaki Premium Wagyu Beef to celebrate their one-year anniversary, I focused all my energies on how I was going to be a part of that experience.  

Just so you know, the A5 Miyazaki Wagyu Beef is a premium delicacy that is ranked the highest quality of beef in Japan and a very rare find in Hawaii.  It is from the Miyazaki Prefecture of Japan, which is known for producing the best beef in the world.   Need I say more?  It didn't take much convincing to cancel existing reservations with a friend and bring her to try this amazing delicacy.  

We started our lovely meal with some signature cocktails, a kahuku corn cream amuse-bouche and the Arancini, lightly fried risotto balls with foie gras and white truffle parmesan.  Everything was amazing.  Equally excellent was the very rich lobster bisque with claw meat.  

Then came the pivotal moment we were waiting for, the Bistecca all Lavanda, lavender infused sous vide in A5 Miyazaki Wagyu filet with arugula, petite potato and onion petals.  It's served medium, cooked through.  It was hands down, the best filet I had in my entire life.  And I eat a lot of filet mignon.  It was almost melt in your mouth and the marbling in the meat was just indescribable.  You will be amazed.  It was definitely worth the $70 splurge. 

I've since then cancelled my birthday  at a popular steakhouse just because I cannot imagine eating any other kind of steak and want to keep that extraordinary memory locked in my taste buds forever.  So for my birthday, I plan to eat fish.  

We ended our incredible meal with coffee and desserts, a tiramisu and the torta al cioccolato, a beautiful dark chocolate torte with kumquat compote.  

From start to finish, it was easily the best meal I had ever experienced and of course the service was above and beyond.  Definitely recommend eating at this beautiful restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating.    

If you are celebrating a special occasion, be sure to tell the staff.  They will present you with the most amazing macarons made by their pastry chef to thank you for dining with them. How awesome is that? 

Along with celebrating their one year since opening at The Kahala Hotel & Resort, they are debuting new creations such as the Tagliatelle ai Frutti di Mare, featuring tiger shrimp, scallops, and fresh house-made tagliatelle pasta tossed in a lemon garlic white wine truffle oil and the Casarecce Ragu di Polpo, an octopus and casarecce pasta with spicy garlic tomato sauce.  A new chef's tasting menu featuring five courses is also being offered for $85 or with wine pairings for $110. 

Located at the Kahala Resort and Hotel 
Open daily for lunch and dinner.
