The Pineapple Room – Ala Moana, HI

This was my first visit to The Pineapple Room and quite possibly my last, I really wanted it to be better but it really wasn’t. The menu and prices were definitely overrated and overpriced. Not a lot of choices – I think the only good deal would be the Loco Moco but you have to get it as part of a prix fixe menu, I wasn’t hungry enough for that. Anyhow, maybe their lunch menu is a bit better because dinner was a disappointment.

141105-04Shrimp Escargot. Garlic shrimp with salt, pepper and parmesan cheese. It sounds good right?  It wasn’t. It was like eating a salt lick. It was incredibly salty, the salt and parmesan cheese is too much.

141105-03Here is the bread. Half grilled and half burnt. Obviously half of the bread was inedible, not that I cared for the hard bread anyway. I used the focaccia to eat the dip…hehe.

141105-06Seared Ahi served puttanesca style over spaghetti. This dish includes portuguese sausage, tomatoes, olives, capers in a light tomato broth. Kristian enjoyed this dish a lot and the fish looks like it it was cooked on point!

141105-07Miso Garlic Butterfish – this was my entree. I enjoyed the root salad a lot, the rice was pretty good. The fish was good too. Pricey though.

    Too bad the shrimp escargot was too salty. Great idea . . . and it does look good. Your butterfish dish does look kinda skimpy. I went there only once before . . . long, long time ago . . . for lunch. I must not have been too impressed ’cause that’s the only time I ever went.
