Toes in the Sand Dinner at Mina's Fish House

I love Mina's Fish House at the Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina!  I've dined there several times since it opened back in December of last year, and recently I was invited to a fabulous "Toes in the Sand" Dinner with Chef Michael Mina and Chef de Cuisine Garrick Mendoza.

Upon arrival guests were treated to a variety of cocktails and mocktails.

Tick Tock, Tranquilizer
Pick Me Up
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish
Guests settled in to the Hale Wa`a for a spectacular meal, to include dishes featuring yellowfin tuna which was caught by Chef Michael himself earlier that morning!

Amuse Bouche - Yellowfin tuna, black truffle ponzu, crispy sushi rice

My faves of the evening were the Amuse Bouche, the Abalone Spaghetti, the Ginger & Scallion Broiled Kampachi, and the Spice-Crusted Fried Madai.

Of the desserts, my favorite is the Yuzu Creme Fraiche Cheesecake, but you really can't go wrong with any of them.

Mina's Fish House is definitely one of my favorite restaurants on the island!  I already made reservations for my birthday!
