Ryan and I had only one requirement for last night’s dinner. We wanted to enjoy our evening meal with a view of the ocean.
After hearing a handful of recommendations for House Without A Key, we decided to walk over to the nearby restaurant and grab a table outside for an early dinner.
We were escorted to a table outside and immediately loved the atmosphere of the restaurant.
We enjoyed the beautiful views and live music while trying new-to-us beers.
I fell in love with the Fire Rock Pale Ale.
While we waited on our entrées, Ryan and I dug into the bread basket (so good!) and shared a bowl of tomato soup.
The idea of tomato soup kind of grosses me out (I feel like I’m eating a bowl of tomato sauce), but this soup tasted more like a bisque and was perfectly creamy. Ryan ordered it for himself initially, but after I sampled a bite and gave it rave reviews, he offered to share and I happily accepted. I didn’t even have to bust out the whole “we’re married, so what’s mine is yours” spiel.
I’m pretty sure Joey Tribiani would hate me. “Joey doesn’t share food!”
For my main course, I ordered the Cajun spiced shutome (swordfish) with a tomato, caper and onion relish.
Can you tell I liked it?
Fresh fish and fresh seafood is, without a doubt, my favorite type of food to order at a restaurant. Ryan and I eat a lot of salmon at home, but we rarely (if ever) prepare fancy fish or shellfish, so ordering it at a restaurant always seems to appeal to me!
House Without A Key knows a thing or two about how to prepare fish because my swordfish was incredibly flavorful. The chef did a great job of highlighting the natural flavor of the fish and kicking it up a notch with the fresh tomato caper relish. I was a fan.
After dinner, Ryan and I spent some time out and about in Waikiki and had a wonderful evening.
Plans for today include exploring the North Shore!
