After weeks of hard work fixing up our house, David and I decided to reward ourselves with a fine lunch at Mariposa Restaurant at Ala Moana Center on Wednesday. There must be a new chef, because the menu is so much better.
This is a view of Ala Moana Park:
We sat inside the restaurant, because it was cooler, but many customers preferred to dine on the outdoor balcony:
We started with a popover, strawberry butter, and a small cup of broth:
Roasted butternut squash soup with kale on top:
David ordered the lobster club sandwich with fries:
I ordered the lobster club sandwich with green salad:
Close up of the sandwich: Bread, tomato, bacon, lettuce, avocado, and huge pieces of lobster:
This kind of food, plus a beautiful view of the park, made our day, capping weeks of hard work on our house.
