A CLOSER LOOK AT THIS WEEK’S HOUSE SPECIAL: GRADUATION HAWAIIAN MENU ($12 PER PERSON, PLUS TAX)
Seasons are changing and spring is quickly approaching. Before you know it, it will be graduation season, which means lots of ono grinds.
Beginning the ﬁrst week of April through Aug. 31, A Catered Experience will be offering its highly praised graduation menus, which are sure to please as the establishment has more than four decades of serving Hawaii under its belt.
This year, A Catered Experience highlights three selections. The Graduation Light Menu (priced at $9 per person, plus tax), consists of teriyaki beef, boneless teriyaki chicken, breaded ﬁsh with tartar sauce, fried noodles and steamed white rice.
The Graduation Hawaiian Menu (priced at $12 per person, plus tax), includes kalua pig, laulau, chicken long rice, lomi salmon, macaroni salad, haupia squares and steamed white rice. For both the Graduation Light Menu and Graduation Hawaiian Menu, A Catered Experience asks for a minimum of 25 guests.
Last is the Graduation Prime Rib Special ($23.50 per person, plus tax). For a minimum of 10 guests, this menu highlights a whole roasted prime rib with au jus and horseradish, herb roasted chicken with lemon thyme sauce, macadamia nut-crusted ﬁsh with ginger butter sauce, steamed white rice, grilled fresh vegetables with Asian aioli, and Chinese chicken salad with won ton chips and oriental dressing.
“We even offer free delivery to those in Waipahu, Mililani and Pearl City,” shares general manager Ron Hattori. “For deliveries outside those areas, we charge a small fee.”
DROOL OVER PORK
This succulent, tender and juicy shredded kalua pork will give you something else to rejoice about.
Haupia squares are the perfect ending to a grand Hawaiian celebration.
In Hawaiian luau fashion, these laulau are packed with pork and ﬁsh, and will have guests talking about how delicious they were long after the party is over.
Chicken long rice is another favorite that is made with fresh vegetables.
