The Kahala Hotel’s Plumeria Beach House holiday buffets put the “bountiful” in Thanksgiving. Served oceanside with stunning views of the blue Pacific, you can pick either outdoor al fresco dining or inside in the more protected main dining area. For starters, enjoy a variety of salads including roasted mushroom and artichoke salad, pasta salad with salami, provolone, and pesto, fresh fruit salad, and marinated beets with citrus vinaigrette. The appetizers featured include a selection of fresh poke with ahi, mussels, and octopus and a raw bar with fresh oysters on the half shell and lomi lomi salmon. Other fresh seafood includes green lip mussels, shrimp cocktail, and an assortment of fresh-made sushi. Enjoy Portuguese and link sausages, bacon, smoked salmon creamed spinach benedict, made-to-order omelets, and malted waffles. At the carving station find traditional roast turkey with herb gravy, cranberry sauce and stuffing and prime rib of beef au jus with horseradish cream. Chef Specialties include steamed snow crab with garlic white wine butter, garlic-herb roasted autumn vegetables, and sautéed fresh island catch with artichoke and mushrooms. No brunch is complete with a trip to the Kahala French toast bar where you’ll find a choice of fresh fruit compotes, flavored syrups, chocolate chips, whipped cream, macadamia nuts, and milk chocolate Bailey’s ganache. If you’ve any room for dessert, enjoy seasonal favorites such as pumpkin pie, pineapple brown butter tart, dulce de leche cake, and honey financiers along with Kahala bread pudding, blondies and brownies and other assorted sweet temptations. Happy Thanksgiving!
