Had to put up another post on Doraku on Kapiolani.  Once again a great meal that left us all very full and very happy.  Doraku which translated means the road or path to pleasure was exactly that.  Pure pleasure enjoying some of my favorite foods.  Always start with the Hamachi Carpaccio ($13.50)  The thin slices of fish with slices of Jalapeño and Red and Green Onion is so light and literally melts in your mouth.  The Ponzu Sauce and Chili Oil add layers of flavor that make this dish disappear in seconds.  Next up is one of my favorite dishes.  Hamachi Kama ($15.95) which is the fish cheek grilled and served with Ponzu Sauce and Chili Daikon Radish.  We pour the Ponzu Sauce over the cheek and spread the Radish over it too.  Then dig into the firm white fish that is so delicious.  The crispy skin adds more flavor and texture.  There is quite a bit of fish on the bone.   More than you would expect.  So delicious.  Yummy!!!!  The Pork Belly Yaki Soba ($11.95) with cubes of Pork Belly, Soba Noodles, Cabbage, Mushrooms and soft boiled egg was delicious.  Loved the egg over the noodles.  My Daughter loved the Miso Soup which was served with the Pork Belly Yaki Soba as a lunch entree.  The God of Fire Roll ($12.50) is one of my favorite sushi rolls with its spicy Ahi, Jalapeño and Habanero Tobiko.  Great flavors and a nice kick of heat.  The Shogun Roll ($13.50) was so fresh and delicious that my eyes rolled with each bite.  The Crab and Avocado with a hint of crispy garlic is amazing.  I could eat this every single day.  The Brownie Tempura ($7.50) is nice but I don't like fried brownies.  Would prefer a non-Tempura Brownie but the ice cream was delicious.  All of my reviews of Doraku are the same.  Great food and one of my favorite places to eat.  Great service on this day from Stephanie who was busy with a lot of tables but always had time to check on us, smile and make sure we were happy.
