Hawaii Mom Blog: Halekulani Bakery & Restaurant

Halekulani Bakery & Restaurant

One of the restaurant openings I was very excited for was Halekulani Bakery & Restaurant at Halepuna Waikiki by Halekulani.

Warabi and Opae Salad

Kauai Shrimp

Braised Short Rib

Maui French Onion Soup

Salmon Chowder

Housemade Fries

Artichoke Tartine

Scallop Crudo

Hawaiian Yellow Fin Ahi Poke
The restaurant focuses on local ingredients, with a menu boasting a legend of Hawaii producers from which ingredients are sourced from. 

One of my favorites was the Fresh Artichoke Tartine.  The sandwich is usually served on Grilled Sourdough, but it was made into bite-size portions for our table.  Made with Parmigiano-Reggiano and Gruyere, Herbs, Crème Fraiche, Housemade Tomato Chutney, and Spinach Pesto, it was so delightful.  I would definitely order the sandwich with the Housemade Fries, which were addicting!  Even though I was so full from an earlier dinner, I couldn't stop eating the fries.

Another favorite was the Warabi and Opae Salad.  Consisting of Big Island Fiddlehead Fern, Red Onions, Tomatoes, Soy Vinaigrette, this salad was light, yet very tasty. 

I also loved the Maui French Onion Soup.  I'm just a fan of French Onion Soup, and this one did not disappoint.
Cassis Chocolate Mousse
Blood Orange and Lychee Creamsicle with Candied Lemon Gelato
No matter how full you are, do not skip dessert!  The Blood Orange and Lychee Creamsicle was as delicious as it looked.  If you love creamsicle, you'll love this dessert.

The Cassis Chocolate Mousse was almost too pretty to devour.  Chocoholics will enjoy this gorgeous treat.

I look forward to returning to try even more desserts!
