Herringbone Waikiki Dinner + Upcoming Stargazing Events at the International Market Place

Last night my husband and I enjoyed a media event dinner at Herringbone at the International Market Place that included stargazing! The International Market Place has several Grand Lānai restaurants including Liliha Bakery, Herringbone, Moani Waikiki, STRIPSTEAK Waikiki, Skybox Taphouse, Eating House 1849 by Roy Yamaguchi, and ShoreFyre. 

We chose our longtime favorite Herringbone as they recently reopened under management by the Aoki Group. We started off with happy hour oysters, hamachi crudo, and our favorite, the buffalo octopus. We were so lucky to be able to chat with Executive Chef Gary Tamashiro and try his special oyster shooters which are currently off the menu (but be sure to ask for them!). They are very tasty and the highlight of our dinner. For our entrees, my husband tried the ahi poke flat bread which he loved and I had the king salmon served misoyaki style. It was delicious! We indulged in the white truffle whipped potatoes which unfortunately left us zero room for dessert. I still remember how amazing the Japanese souffle yuzu cheesecake was from last month's media event so next time we will manage the meal better!

After an amazing dinner at Herringbone, we stopped by Stargazers of Hawaii where Astronomer and owner, Nick Bradley had his telescope set up for guests to view Saturn and the moon! It was spectacular! If this is up your alley, tickets for a special stargazing show are available for December 11 and 24 on the International Market Place events page.
