Hawaii Mom Blog: Mud Hen Water

Mud Hen Water

I recently enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Chef Ed Kenney's Mud Hen Water, a place I've been wanting to try ever since it opened back in 2015.

Amuse Bouche - Carrot Orange Puree

Chicken Long Rice Croquettes

Yako o Pa`i `ai

Buttered `Ulu
I loved the Chicken Long Rice Croquettes, which was served with a delightful curry sauce.

Th Yaki o Pa`i `ai was reminiscent of mochi, and the buttered `ulu - fermented black beans, sour orange cilantro, was recommended by our server - and it was one of my fave dishes of the evening!
Fried Chicken

Fried Chicken accompaniments

I`a Lawalu
The Fried Chicken was served with Szechuan salt, tamarind mustard, shrimp chips, lettuce, mushrooms, and cucumbers, allowing diners to make their own lettuce wraps.  I liked the chicken on its own, however.  The perfectly cooked chicken, with thin, crispy skin, was tender and juicy.

The fish in the I`a Lawalu was mahi.  Served with pastele and a mixture of locally-grown veggies, the fish was flaky and full of flavor.

Pineapple-Polenta Upside Down Cake

Chocolate-Kiawe Bean Brownie
I loved the Pineapple-Polenta Upside Down Cake.  Topped with grilled pineapple and a refreshing coconut sorbetto, the textures of the cake itself, along with the sweet coconut and tart pineapple, created such a delicious dish!

The Chocolate-Kiawe Bean Brownie tasted a little burnt on the bottom, but it was an overall great dessert, especially with the mac nut toffee and black sesame gelato.  Such a great combination of flavors!

Service was great, and this was one of my favorite dining experiences so far this year!
