Tango

This is my favorite lunch spot these days. The food is high-class but the prices are not. Where else in Honolulu can you get entrees like “Duck Leg Confit with Thyme Jus and Crispy Risotto Cake” or “Hamakua Mushroom Risotto with Asparagus and Garlic Shrimp” for $11.00?! It’s no wonder they received the 2009 Hale ‘Aina Award for Best New Oahu Restaurant.

Hubby and I have been wanting to use up a gift card I received so we treated ourselves to lunch on a rare day off together.

I had the Sweet Caramelized Onion Soup ($6.00) with Gruyere and Parmesan cheese on top.

Followed by a Roasted Beet Salad ($11.00) with goat cheese and eggs, served with 2 small rye baguette pieces smeared with Boursin cheese. Look at these beautiful golden and red beets! The dressing was a lightly sweet raspberry vinaigrette that complemented the salad perfectly.

Hubby had the Confit Duck Burger ($9.75). It’s filled with flavorful shredded duck meat and served with french fries, sweet carrot-raisin slaw, and a pickle. (You have the option of tossed greens instead of french fries too).

For dessert we ordered Crepes with Berry Compote ($5.50) with vanilla bean ice cream which was good, but a little too sweet for our tastes.

For a fantastic lunch that won’t empty your wallet, Tango is a must-try. They’re open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
