What I liked about Basalt at Duke's Lane in Waikiki was the design, atmosphere and service.  What I didn't like is the food.  Don't get me wrong, the food was not bad but just not satisfying.  Could of been what I ordered.  Seared Ahi and Farro ($18).  First I was surprised to see just two small pieces of Ahi on the plate.  Second I was disappointed that the Ahi was covered in Furakake which is a Japanese Seaweed.  Problem with putting Furakake on Ahi is that it is all you taste.  The Furakake overpowers the fish and I could not stomach it.  Tried to cut off the ends seared with Furakake but then just ended up letting my Daughter eat it.  My Daughter had the Chowder and Greens ($12) and did not seem too impressed.  She did not finish the Chowder.  The Loco Moco ($14) with Wagyu Beef and two perfectly cooked eggs was a hit with my Wife.  She liked it.
