Honolulu (KHON2) – Hawaii’s Kitchen went on the road to Viaggio for a taste of its Northern Italian Cuisine with Hawaiian flair.
General Manager Gregg Fraser and Executive Chef Rodney Uyehara invited Tannya Joaquin into the kitchen to see preparation of Viaggio’s popular Polpi in Umido – braised octopus in a puttanesca sauce sauce served with cannellini beans and garnished with a grilled meyer lemon.
Other featured dishes include Osso Bucco – braised veal shank (bone in) topped with passion orange guava sauce and roased walnuts, all served over a bed of risotto with a side of roasted vegetables.
For dessert, Tiramisu hit the sweet spot.
