My favorite part of a meal at MW Restaurant is…

…dessert!!! I recently did a Serious Eats post on Michelle’s sweets. They’re magical. I worked for Michelle one summer (a decade ago) when she was pastry chef at Alan Wong’s. Now she co-owns MW with her husband, Wade Ueoka. 

She’s creating things like Coconut Four Ways with aerated coconut, coconut chiffon cake, kaffir-lime pudding, and haupia sorbet. Pictured at top is the Kula Strawberry Cheesecake….complete with li hing mui-stuffed strawberries!

Passion Orange Creamsicle Brûlée comes with orange kanten and tapioca.

There’s Banana Cream Pie in jar…

…and Mini Doughnuts, delicate with a warm chocolate sauce for dipping.

The MW Candy Bar is a signature dessert…

…and so are these tiny ice cream sandwiches. Michelle changes the flavor combos pretty often. Dad and I got dark chocolate cake with MW Candy Bar Ice Cream sandwiched in the middle. Super ono ^_^

And you can’t miss the savory food! Wade’s whipping up dishes like Ahi Poke Gyoza…

…pressed Jidori Fried Chicken with garlic shoyu…

…and a Caesar with pipikaula poke and anchovy-garlic dressing.

Check out these pickled beets with local Hawaii goat cheese…

…and Ho Farms Vegetable Poke. I love poke’ed everything!

The Mochi-Crusted Monchong is a must.

And dad destroyed this Kim Chee-Glazed Pork Chop. Fried rice tucked underneath o_O
