Hawaii Restaurants~Hiroshi Euroasian Tapas

One of my good friends just got married earlier this year and I was unable to fly back to Hawaii for his wedding. We decided to meet up for dinner at Hiroshi's one night while I was back on vacation. the last time I ate at Hiroshi's was back in 2005.  I remember really enjoying the meal and was impressed with Hiroshi's version of "peas and carrots" which was really a mixture of perfectly cut cubes of carrots and edamame. 
We were served these rice cakes with a wasabi dip, while we were waiting for our entrees.  They reminded me of lightly fried puff rice.  The pictures are a little dark because I did not want to disturb other dinners with the flash from my point and shoot camera.

My friend ordered the crispy skin moi served with Mrs.Cheng's tofu, fennel, edamame, corn, tomatoes, and hijiki in a broth. 
I ordered the panko-crusted swordfish served with roasted shitake mushrooms, zuchinni, and thai basil in a roasted garlic soy butter sauce.  I'm not sure if my taste buds have been altered since I work on some low sodium projects, but I felt that both our dishes were a bit on the salty side.  The flavors were great, but I kept reaching for my glass of water. 
We ended our meal by sharing the bananas foster dessert.  It was served with two chocolate lollipops and a vanilla dip. Yum!
