Four Seasons Hualalai Birthday Suprise!

My friend celebrated a birthday at the Four Seasons Hualalai.  This positive, energetic, fun-loving friend is beautiful inside and out. My pal and I surprised the birthday girl (and escaped rainy Hilo that weekend) and joined her for dinner at Ulu Ocean Grill + Sushi Lounge. We ate very well that night!img_0094Charred Local Octopus:  “takoyaki” style, pickled ginger, Japanese BBQ Sauce.img_0092Crunchy Shrimp Roll:img_0093Hamachi Sashimiimg_0044-1Miso Glazed shutome: crispy bok choy, lime dashiLobster & Shrimp Pad Thai: rice noodles, local tofu, tamarind, peanutsimg_0039Big Island Tomahawk Steak For Two that fed more than two.img_0099Mushroom Friend Riceimg_0101Grilled Asparagusimg_0100Local Sweet Corn-citrus cream, crispy quinoa
