New Tasting Menu at Hukilau Lanai

Hukilau Lanai has made some changes to their dynamite tasting menu. It’s also a great deal. From 5 to 5:45 p.m., five courses of fine dining for only $32. If you add wine, it’s $50.00. A gluten-free menu is also available, so ask the server when you order. Reservations are required, to make them visit the Hukilau Lanai Kauai website. Niihau Lamb Sausage has replaced the house-made longanisa and the popular candied ahi has made its way to the regular menu. Here’s a look at the new tasting menu:
