This was my first visit to The Pineapple Room and quite possibly my last, I really wanted it to be better but it really wasn’t. The menu and prices were definitely overrated and overpriced. Not a lot of choices – I think the only good deal would be the Loco Moco but you have to get it as part of a prix fixe menu, I wasn’t hungry enough for that. Anyhow, maybe their lunch menu is a bit better because dinner was a disappointment.
Well this was good. I enjoy this kind of bread, is this a plain focaccia? I could have had more of this…and I think we did.
Shrimp Escargot. Garlic shrimp with salt, pepper and parmesan cheese. It sounds good right? It wasn’t. It was like eating a salt lick. It was incredibly salty, the salt and parmesan cheese is too much.
Here is the bread. Half grilled and half burnt. Obviously half of the bread was inedible, not that I cared for the hard bread anyway. I used the focaccia to eat the dip…hehe.
Seared Ahi served puttanesca style over spaghetti. This dish includes portuguese sausage, tomatoes, olives, capers in a light tomato broth. Kristian enjoyed this dish a lot and the fish looks like it it was cooked on point!
Miso Garlic Butterfish – this was my entree. I enjoyed the root salad a lot, the rice was pretty good. The fish was good too. Pricey though.
Too bad the shrimp escargot was too salty. Great idea . . . and it does look good. Your butterfish dish does look kinda skimpy. I went there only once before . . . long, long time ago . . . for lunch. I must not have been too impressed ’cause that’s the only time I ever went.
