My friends planned an awesome bachelorette party which started off with dinner at Doraku. Doraku is a Japanese fusion-type sushi bar located in the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center in Waikiki. The food is served izakaya (or tapas) style, so the portions are smaller and are meant to be shared.
We started the night off with two bottles of wine and a pitcher of sangria. Don't order the sangria, it wasn't so good.
Rock Shrimp served with a spicy mayonnaise sauce ($10.25). This is a typical Shrimp Dynamite dish.
Dragon Roll ($11.95). Shrimp tempura, asparagus, avocado, cucumber, masago, and spicy mayo. Crispy Calamari served with a curry sauce ($8.75).
Beef Maki ($10.75). This was our least favorite dish of them all. It was think slices of marinated beef wrapped around vegetables. The meat lacked a bit of flavor and had a chewy texture. We also ordered the Doraku Seafood salad ($13.95) which consisted of mixed greens topped with raw tuna, salmon, yellowtail, and whitefish. This was my favorite dish, but I think that if you cover anything with a ponzu-type sauce I'll usually like it. My second favorite dish was the spicy tuna rolls($7.25). I am not sure what I did with those pictures, but when I find them, I will post them. We also ordered the Chicken Karaage, and tempura? I don't really remember. That's what happens when I delay my posts for weeks.
