VEGETABLE TERRINE WITH GREEN CURRY SAUCE
1009 Kapiolani Blvd., Honolulu
Phone number (808) 585-0011
We are aware that this may look like Play-Doh, but trust us, it’s delicious. The Vegetable Terrine is like some sort of veggie lasagna, stacked with layers of purple Okinawan potatoes, asparagus, shiitake mushrooms, roasted bell peppers, Aloun Ewa sweet onions and mashed pumpkin. It’s surrounded by a green curry sauce that’s not too spicy and just a touch sweet.
ROASTED SQUASH RAVIOLI
660 Ala Moana Blvd., Kakaako
Phone number (808) 591-6658
This is technically an appetizer — and the portion is pretty small — but it’s so good that you’ll be tempted to make it your main course. Hearty portions of mashed squash are wrapped up in al dente ravioli skin, then topped with goat cheese, spinach and a walnut sage pesto. The result is a perfect balance of flavors — nothing overpowers anything else — all blending together in a neat medley.
