But I'm a fan of Alan Wong's and I've never been to his highly-rated Pineapple Room, so my family and I visited one night. And I'm so glad we did, because we all agreed: this was one of the best meals we've ever had on Oahu.
The Pineapple Room is a casual yet beautiful restaurant located in Ala Moana, one of the largest outdoor malls in the world, and my favorite shopping mall on the island. Simple yet cozy, the focus is the quality of the food--a wonderful mix of Asian cuisine with a Hawaiian twist.
|Chinese Style Pan Steamed Onaga, so pretty and so tasty|
The real food was all delicious (the Onaga was perfectly steamed and bursting with flavor), but of course I was giddy about the desserts! All of the choices looked incredible, and I wanted them all. But that would just be silly. So so silly. (Note: I will be back. Oh yes, I will be back).

Then there was the Japanese-style strawberry cheesecake. This delicate masterpiece was light and fluffy with a crunchy cookie-like crust, and topped with fresh strawberries. A sweet strawberry salsa complemented this lovely little dish.
|A yummy and healthy (remember, strawberries are a fruit) dessert.|
And to top off this perfect meal? A bit of shopping, of course!
