Adventures in Food - Chocolate Edition. :)  
On Sunday, Mark & I went to Halekulani Hotel in Waikiki to have bunch with the inlaws. It was a belated birthday celebration for Mark (whose birthday was in July!!) Generally the food at the Halekulani is all VERY good with a lot of veggie options that I can choose from. :)

What I really like about their buffet, though is their selection of desserts, more specifically, their chocolate desserts - so this is what I focused on this time. :)



This was a dark chocolate, and caramel tart - which was delicious!
The dark chocolate was VERY rich and had a creamy, almost silky texture. NIIIICE! :)


This was marked as "Traditional Chocolate Cake" , but it was just delicious!
Call me simple, but this was my favorite dessert on the buffet line! :)
The chocolate on this was just perfect and the cake was so moist!! :)


This photo was taken of the hotel's homemade ice cream. I chose the chocolate
(of course!) and added macadamia nuts, chocolate shavings, and fresh strawberries. :) YUM!


This was a tall glass of pudding / chocolate mousse - which was VERY good. :)
You can see the white chocolate decorative "Halekulani" ad in the center. ;)
VERY delicious and pretty to look at. ;)


Of course, no Food Adventure is complete without a picture of the two of us,
happy, VERY full, and content. ;) (And undoubtedly, several pounds heavier!) ;)

Hope you all have a nice election week!! :) HUGS!!

Thanks for the birthday wishes for Mark! :) In our family we tend to celebrate birthdays extremely late... My sister in law and I have birthdays in Dec and January and we usually celebrate around March. ;)

And those desserts were delicious!!

This one is very good - one of the best, I think, on the island. :) The chocolate cake was heavenly!!

It looked heavenly. We always like to get 3-4 desserts and share them all.... that way we can get a taste of everything. LOL

I'm so hungry! I would go with the chocolate ice cream and strawberries. I love strawberries!

If you like dark chocolate, that tart is for you!! The chocolate was so creamy - it almost seemed silky. YUMMY!!! It's too bad you aren't here - we could've done more bonding over cake and baked goods. ;)
