Those who’ve missed The Kahala Hotel & Resort’s lavish dining options will be pleased to hear that it’s back with a weekend-only to-go menu.
From 5 to 8:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, you can call in an order of some of The Kahala’s finest offerings.
This includes the Fried Ahi Poke Musubi ($24) as a starter. Far from basic, this dish encompasses sweet soy, ogo and Asian rémoulade. In the soup department, try the Maui Onion Soup ($15), which features — you guessed it — caramelized Maui onions, as well as beef broth, Gruyére cheese and crispy onions.
A light gluten-free and vegan option is the Kahala House Salad ($12), which tosses up mixed Kula lettuce with tomatoes and a shallot red wine vinaigrette. Those wanting a bit of protein can add fish for $15 more. Bruddah Dave’s Taro Burger ($24) is another option for non-meat eaters that puts roasted portobello mushrooms, melted Daiya cheese, tomatoes, upcountry greens and balsamic dressing on top of a grilled taro patty.
Now, for the main act. The entrée list is abundant with a little something for nearly every craving. The Kahala’s Signature Rib-eye “Steak Frites” ($47) is always a hit, while the Kalua-style Half-roasted Chicken ($29) uses Mary’s free-range chicken, chicken jus and seasonal vegetables to complete the plate.
The menu also boasts quite the list as far as seafood goes. Try the Crispy Wok Fried Prawns ($38) that come with wok-fried vegetables and chicken-fat rice; or, the Grilled Catch ($30) over a caper beurre blanc.
Checking off all of the boxes is the Kahala Seafood Fettuccine ($30), which includes a delightful combination of fresh Hawaiian catch, jumbo prawns, garlic-roasted Hamakua mushrooms and spinach in a white wine cream sauce with shredded Parmesan on top.
With so many great options to choose from, The Kahala has made it an easy decision-making process with its Fri-Date Night special ($150). Enough for two, enjoy the aforementioned Kula House Salad and Fried Ahi Musubi, along with ‘Aina A Me Ke Kai (Grilled Beef with caramelized Maui Onion jus, Fresh Hawaiian Catch with caper beurre blanc, farmers market vegetables and pommes sarladaises). Lastly, indulge in Chocolate-dipped Strawberries to end the night.
Meanwhile, its Family Feast Saturday special ($248), which must be reserved in advance, serves four people and includes the Kahala Signature 48-ounce Prime Rib, a house mixed green salad, farmers market vegetables, oven-roasted potatoes, au jus, horse radish cream, Kahala bread pudding and crème anglaise.
