Eating House 1849
, a concept created by Roy Yamaguchi that pays homage to Peter Fernandez, who is known to have opened the first restaurant in Honolulu in 1849 called Eating House, is one of my favorite restaurants on the island.  I've had fabulous dining experiences at both the Kapolei and Waikiki locations, so I was excited to have been invited to try Executive Chef Jason Peel's new menu.

His new menu emphasizes the use of local ingredients, noting how "we are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful place where there is a fusion of ethnicities, cultures, and flavors.”  Chef Jason's passion for what he does really shines through in his dishes.

Charred Tako & Potatoes
Preserved Lemon Yogurt, Herb Garlic Sauce

Smoked Pono Pork Arancini (to be available by 1/1/18)
Kamuela Tomato Jam, Onion Oil
Small Kine Farms Cremini & Clams
Nalo Dill, Grilled Bread
Grilled Maui Baby Romaine Caesar
Aloun Farms Corn, Feta, Rye Croutons

Garlic Ahi Salad
Nalo Baby Kale, Sesame Soy Dressing

Ginger Scallion Kampachi (to be available by 1/1/18)
Peanut Congee, Oxtail Style Ragu
Soy Glazed Short Rib (to be available by 1/1/18)
Spicy Carrot Honey Puree, “Korean Baked Potato”

Lemongrass Curry Grilled Kauai Prawns (to be available by 1/1/18)

Rosemary Black Pepper & Pineapple Cobbler (to be available by 1/1/18)
Vanilla Gelato

Tropical Halo Halo (to be available by 1/1/18)
Coconut Gelato, Vanilla Panna Cotta, Pineapple Ice

My personal faves were the short rib (so tender and flavorful), kampachi (loved the oxtail style ragu), the arancini (the tomato jam really elevated the dish), the prawns (enjoyed the Thai flavors), and the cobbler (the combination of spices really worked).

Many people raved about the tako and the clams, and tropical ingredients gave a nice twist to traditional Halo Halo.

It was a fabulous evening of food, and I can't wait to return to Eating House 1849!
