One of My Favorite Restaurants on Oahu - Senia


Just about anyone who loves excellent food and service loves Senia

I recently dined there with @themaryberry because she had never been!  We met for lunch for the Prix Fixe Menu ($38 for three courses), and ended up with a bounty of dishes to indulge in thanks to Chef Chris Kajioka.

I ordered the same three dishes I did the last time I went to Senia just a month prior:

"Chopped" Salad

Fried Chicken "Caesar" Sandwich
Senia Cookie
The salad is a generous serving, and the salami gave it a pleasant saltiness, and the garbanzo gave it a nice texture.

The Fried Chicken "Casear" Sandwich is one of the best chicken sandwiches I've tried.  The chicken is perfectly cooked and seasoned!

And the Senia Cookie (aka my favorite cookie ever) is a must - with peanut butter, Valrhona chocolate, and toffee.

Mary's selections included:
Ham Hock Terrine

Spaghetti Chitarra
She also chose the Senia cookie for dessert.

And compliments of Chef Chris were:
Kalua Pork & Cabbage Croquettes

Chicken Liver Mousse

"Poke" Cracker + Kusshi Oyster
Ahi Brioche

Maine Sea Scallops

Carrot Cake Butter Mochi
Mary loved the Ahi Brioche (it's not on the lunch menu, but she was thrilled when it came out since she was hoping to try it) and the Chicken Liver Mousse, which was spread on corn madeleines. 

I devoured the Ahi Brioche as well, along with the scallops and the croquettes.

The Carrot Cake Butter Mochi is another of my favorite desserts at Senia, but I absolutely love the cookie!

The service at Senia is exceptional.  On my last visit, the server remembered that someone in our party often gets cold while dining, so he mentioned he would turn up the temp.  And on this recent visit, a tray slipped out of a server's hand, nearly hitting another guest (it was simply a freak occurrence).  The guest didn't have any issue with it, but the server ended up bringing a complimentary dessert to the guest as an "apology."  Talk about service!
