Craving a Mai Tai, Pokē, and Hakone Buffet

What’s the first thing I crave when getting to Hawaii? A Mai Tai, which I ordered virgin, and Pokē, which I ordered with a Chinese vegetable spring rolls appetizer with sweet chili sauce from the Mai Tai Bar at our hotel (Royal Hawaiian). Pokē is a raw salad and is also a Hawaiian verb for “section” or “to slice or cut;” the island pokē trio we ordered came with three variations: octopus, shrimp, and ahi. Not long after; however, we were ready for dinner and headed to Hakone Restaurant at the Prince Resorts Hawaii for authentic Japanese food. Hakone offers a wide variety of Japanese cuisine, including assorted sashimi, salad, appetizer and entree buffet, sushi bar with a chef preparing handrolls and sushi a la carte, and a dessert station. My cravings were definitely satisfied.
