Incredible Dinner at Roy's

For a special dinner to celebrate Tracy's recent birthday I took her to Roy's, which I've been told is one of the best places in Hawaii to eat and highly rated on Zagat. Operated by Roy Yamaguchi inventor of Asian Fusion cuisine. I have to say they live up to the hype unlike so many other restaurants.

Tracy had a special appetizer sampler for her meal, more than enough food for her, and I had one of the pre-set three course meals with wine pairings. All three courses were incredible. The meal started with an appetizer of a spare rib, a spring roll and ahi tuna paired with a very dry sparking white wine. Next was the main course which consisted of white fish crusted with macadamia nuts with a lobster sauce on a bed of asperegus. That course was paired with a refreshing California chardonnay. The last course was of course desert. A very delectable chocolate soufflé with vanilla ice cream. This final course was paired with a zinfandel. I'm a sucker for chocolate deserts, especially those with a hot molten chocolate center and this one didn't disappoint. Every course was truly memorable.

Tracy loved her meal as well, especially the tuna roll and the crab cakes. She was on the fence regarding which was better, but finally decided on the tuna roll. She let me taste both and it had to be a tough call. I agree though, the tuna roll was amazing.
