Miyako Restaurant, Honolulu
I wanted to take my dad someplace special for his birthday the other week and after thinking about it for a while, decided on Miyako Restaurant in Waikiki! This is the same place that we went to for our 5th wedding anniversary last year.
But this time I made sure to get seating out on the lanai. It was a great view of Waikiki
and the sunset.
We all decided to get dinners from the Kaiseki menus.
Since it was October, Miyako had many matsutake mushroom dishes available. We got this Matsutake to Kikka no Oshitashi to share.
It was very yummy with enough mushrooms for each of us to try a couple pieces of matsutake.
For drinks my dad tried this sake sampler which he enjoyed…
My mom didn’t want to eat too much so she got the Mai Kaiseki meal.
My hubby got the Miyabi Kaiseki. Here are some of things that came with his…
But really, the star of this evening was what my dad and I ordered, the October Kaiseki Menu! Here is what we had…
Duck and Eggplant with Miso Vinaigrette
Crabmeat Dumpling with Seaweed in Clear Soup
Tuna and Yellowtail “Hamachi” Sashimi
Broiled Seasonal Salmon wrapped with foil
Stewed “Karei” Flounder and Matsutake
Seven Mushroom Chazuke and Japanese Pickles
Fruit Salad with Custard Sauce
Everything was so delicious in our kaiseki. I really love mushrooms so this October set focusing on mushrooms was perfect for me! My dad also enjoyed the meal so much that he said it was his best Japanese dinner EVER! This includes meals that he had at restaurants in Japan. And you know what? I think I would have to agree – the food, atmosphere, view, service…were all awesome!!
