The Review

I had craved a veggie filled dish all day.  I wound up selecting the Chicken Asian Stir Fry with Rice Noodles in a Soy-Yuzu Sauce.  It was light, but filling.  The snap peas added a refreshing texture and flavor to the dish.

I really enjoyed it at the end of a long, hot day at the theme parks.  It did not reheat well.

My husband enjoyed the Miso-buttered Strip Loin.  It was a very thick cut of steak that they recommend served medium rare.  If you opt for a well-done steak, the chef can butterfly for a quicker finish.  Be aware that it will change the flavor profile.

For those of you who are visiting Kona Cafe with someone who can eat gluten, here is a gratuitous photograph of the crab cakes.  Unfortunately, they are gluten-filled.  However, they are baby approved!

Finally, we really enjoyed this restaurant.  Mostly, we enjoyed being able to get a last-minute reservation.  Stay tuned as we review and discuss a variety of topics at the Polynesian Village Resort.
