Aloha Hilo Day Trip: Moon & Turtle

I've gone to Hilo quite a bit over the past year, and with the exception of one visit, I've dined at Moon & Turtle each time.

On our Aloha Hilo Day Trip, Moon & Turtle was our last stop of the day.  I made reservations for 5:30pm, when they opened, since we had a very short window to eat (our flight back to Oahu was at 8:04pm).  The Moon & Turtle team made sure we had plenty to eat during our quick visit.

Smokey Sashimi

Salty Fish Fried Rice

Crispy Brussels Sprouts

Crispy Menpachi

Mushroom Risotto

Pipikaula Salad
The food was amazing, as usual. The Smokey Sashimi and Salty Fish Fried Rice are popular dishes at Moon & Turtle, so of course we had to order some.

My personal faves were the Crispy Menpachi, Pipikaula Salad, and the Mushroom Risotto.  I could've eaten the entire dish of risotto myself.  It was so creamy and delish, made with Koshikari rice and truffle oil!

It was just too bad we had to rush out of Moon & Turtle (we made it just in time for boarding - that's how close we cut it), but I'm glad we got to squeeze dinner in.

Reservations are highly recommended!
