Hawaii Mom Blog: House Without a Key at Halekulani

House Without a Key at Halekulani

Halekulani is a Hawaii Mom Blog favorite.  Both Nat and I got married at Halekulani, and Nadia regularly staycations at this fabulous hotel.  We are all also huge fans of the dining options at Halekulani (I just love the Sunday Brunch at Orchids!)

Nadia and I were excited to join some of our foodie friends, Wina and Rowena, for a girls night out at House Without a Key!

We started the night off with Halekulani's Mai Tai.
Mai Tai
Consisting of a blend of fine rums (including 151!), curacao, lime juice, and a hint of almond, the Mai Tai was quite strong (it's the strongest cocktail on the menu), but it was delicious!

I also tried the Halekulani Sunset.

It was dangerously good - with rum, pineapple juice, and guava puree.

We couldn't wait to dig in to some of the food!
Local Yellow Fin Tuna Poke
Cajun Spiced Ribeye

Coconut Shrimp
Breaded Puna Goat Cheese Salad

I really enjoyed the Coconut Shrimp, which was served with a delightful mango-orange marmalade sauce, as well as the Breaded Puna Goat Cheese Salad.

Steamed Ehu

Roasted U.S. Prime Rib

Baked Kona Lobster

Catch of the Day
For my entree, I had the Steamed Ehu, which was a substitute in Halekulani's Signature Steamed Onaga dish.  Prepared with braised baby bok choy, shiitake mushrooms, green onion, and parsley, the dish was so good!

The Catch of the Day was shutome, and was prepared with green curry sauce.  I had a taste, and it was really good.  Rowena loved the sauce!

To end the amazing evening, we indulged in Halekulani's Coconut Cake.

This signature dessert is divine!  I'm not a huge fan of coconut, but the first time I took a bite of this coconut cake (at my wedding tasting!), I was hooked!

The setting at House Without a Key is picture-perfect.  Diamond Head is on one end, and the sun sets on the other, while entertainment is performed against a stunning backdrop.

Service was excellent the entire night (service is always excellent whenever I go to Halekulani!), and we all had a wonderful time!
