Dinner at Roy's in Kauai

I have adapted to the time change quite well. I actually woke up at 6:00 a.m. today instead of the 4:30 a.m. yesterday and the rest of the day felt normal. We spent the day running errands after our morning walk strolling along the beach and exploring some of the local neighborhoods. This area is absolutely stunning. We bought food to make breakfast in our condo unit every morning and got settled the rest of the day.

Exactly one week ago, we enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Roy's in Plano and tonight we had dinner at Roy's on Kauai and it was superb! Even though the Roy's on Kauai has delicious food, it is all about the food since the location is nowhere near the water and is the end anchor at a local little shopping area.

I started with the Spicy Ahi Poke which is fresh, raw ahi tuna served over a few cucumber slices, topped with some fresh avocado cubes with a garlic aioli and a drizzle of smoked soy and tobiko vinaigrette. This was by far the best ahi tuna I have ever eaten and the smoky, sweet flavor of the sauce was the perfect complement. I then moved on to the entree which was Roy's Poipu Fish Duo which was a piece of Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahimahi served on a pool of lobster butter sauce and a piece of Potato and Black Pepper Crusted Opah served on saffron vanilla emulsion and truffle bearnaise. The side was roasted potatoes with beautifully cooked broccoli florets. I can't even begin to describe how good the whole combination was. Both fishes were equally delicious.

I ended the meal with their Almond Creme Brulee since I am such of fan of creme brulee in general. The creme was delicate and slightly flavored with almond extract and the sugar crust on the brulee was perfect.

It was a superb day for all!
