Warning, some of the pictures (at least one) maybe too graphic for those with queasy stomachs.
The Cat is still hosting her friend from Hong Kong. Sunday buffet brunch at Orchids at the Halekulani. One of the premier spots to take visitors.
On the carving table was whole roast pig, you can see a bit of it above near the 12:00 area of the plate. Had to ask (beg, plead, cajole) for some of the crispy skin. Think the chef was saving it for himself afterwards (just a thought, I would too).
Lots of salads, poké, sashimi, prime rib, etc.
One of Orchids signature items is their popovers with poha berry jam. Awesome stuff (not too sweet, a little tart … just right), was looking forward to one, maybe two. Alas, poha berries are becoming scarce, Orchids offered orange marmalade instead.
In my opinion, a very poor substitute. Oh well, can’t cry over “spilt milk” as it were.
Food was good, no complaints, except for the poha berry jam. But the highlight reel of the day for me was in the bathroom.
Like out of “Star Trek”.
Of course, I had to try it (no, there was no reason for its use). I pushed every button (even the oscillating and pulsating buttons). It was goooooood! I wonder where’s the photon torpedo button.
More reason for us to go back. Hee hee :)
Enjoy. Eat well.
