Hawaii Mom Blog: Merriman's Honolulu

Merriman's Honolulu

It's been a couple of years since I last dined at Merriman's Honolulu. The menu has changed, but the ambiance and quality of food is still classy and fun. My friends treated me to lunch here one Sunday morning for my birthday. We splurged! It's hard not to when you don't get out to these fancy places very often. We dined in their outdoor seating area, which is located on the Kamakee Street side of the restaurant, and is nicely shaded in the mornings. 

We started our meal with the Bag 'O Biscuits appetizer, and Day Boat Monchong, Clams and Pacific Shrimp Bouillabaisse. The bouillabaisse was heavenly and I'm so glad we decided to share this dish. It was loaded with seafood and the broth was packed with flavor! It was large enough for the three of us to share as a starter. For the main course, my friends ordered the Hirabara Farms Kale Salad, Organic Mac Nut Crusted Fish (today's fish was salmon), and I ordered the Wagyu Umami Burger. We could not resist ordering a side of Parmesan Truffle Fries to share (what's a burger without fries??). I can't speak for the salad because I didn't try it, it looked really fresh and colorful. The mac nut fish came with a generous portion of salmon - my friend took half of it home. The burger was heavenly, thanks to the wagyu beef and truffle aioli (yum!). For dessert, my friends insisted that we order something since we were celebrating my birthday.  We selected the lilikoi posset. Fortunately for me, my friends just wanted a taste of it, so I was "forced" to eat most of it, which I happily did, just short of licking the dish.
