Don the Beachcomber for sunset dinner Restaurant Review… back again
We are back at Don the Beachcomber’s Mai Tai Bar on Kona Bay, Hawaii. I am relaxing with a Lavaman Red Ale. Leise is enjoying her iced tea. The ale is smooth like a local microbrew on tap should be. Tasty robust flavor of a darker beer which I prefer.
We start happy hour with the sweet potato fries with a hint of rosemary. Leise can’t keep her hands off of them. They are divine. The fries melt in your mouth with a deliciousness which makes them instantly addicting. The pickled ginger and garlic mayonnaise, makes for a delicious dipping sauce and great alternative to ketchup. I ordered the burger, medium rare with cheese. It was cooked as ordered. The burger is juicy and moist and quite delicious with fresh tomato, lettuce, and onion on an onion roll bun. The sweet potato fries were the perfect match. Relaxing further, we notice the sun is 20 minutes from setting. We watch as the outrigger canoes line up to run another heat of practice races as the men strengthen their bodies and steel their minds. Another fry pulls me away as the water crashes on the rocks in front of Don’s Mai Tai Bar.
Leise orders the Sweet Potato Haulapia Pie. Leise says it is wonderful… I am unimpressed with Leise’s pie but she loves it. I am focused on my beer and burger… Yum.
We give Don the Beachcomber Restaurant 4.5 out of 5 surfboards for ambiance. And for the food we give 4 out of 5 surfboards.
