Visit Hawai`i Island: Binchotan

Back in 2019, I was invited to the Grand Opening celebration of Binchotan at the Fairmont Orchid.  During my recent visit to the resort, went back to Binchotan for dinner, where they continue to feature a variety of menu items, including grilled, or robatayaki foods.

Pork Belly Fried Rice

The Pork Belly Fried Rice was delicious.  There was lots of garlic and kim chee mixed in for a very flavorful fried rice.
The Ribeye was robata-grilled, but my friend thought it lacked smokiness.

Watercress Salad

The Watercress Salad came with heart of palm, avocado, tomatoes, and mac nuts.  It was a lovely salad, and I appreciated the contrasting textures between the creamy avocado and the slivers of heart of palm.
Tempura Cauliflower

The Tempura Cauliflower was my favorite.  The tempura batter was perfect, and glazed with gochujang.  I ate nearly all of them myself!

Patisserie Nanako Cheesecake

I love Patisserie Nanako, so I was excited to order the cheesecake from the small dessert menu.  It was creamy and light!

Service was warm and friendly, and Binchotan was a nice place for a casual meal.
