A few of our favorite menu items at Ganotisi’s Pacific Rim Cuisine include:

Kalbi Short Ribs
Korean-style barbecue ribs have a unique soy-based sauce that’s sweet and salty. The ribs are perfectly grilled after marinating for hours, giving them a crispy exterior and juicy, flavorful interior.

Sensei Farms Green Salad
Made from locally sourced veggies, the Sensi Farm Green Salad is especially flaky as to when it’s available. If it’s on the day’s men, though, the Lanai mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, cukes, artichokes, carrots and feta cheese are fresh and delicious. Add some crispy chicken or shrimp to make the bowl more filling.

Meat Jun
The day’s meat battered with egg and flour, these patties of meat get pan-fried until crispy. Like a little mini potpie without the vegetables, there’s a good reason why the patties are such popular street food. They’re particularly easy to eat while walking (if you don’t want to sit in the park).

Banana Limpia a la Mode
A dessert takes on the spring or egg roll, Banana Limpia fills the wrapper with sweet bananas or plantains. The whole thing gets deep-fried to make a thick, tasty French fry that’s served the proper French way — a la mode.

Halo Halo with Ube Ice Cream
An ice cream sundae like you’ve never had (unless you’ve lived in Southeast Asia). Ube ice cream is made with the standard cream, sugar, etc. — and purple yams. The yams give it a distinctive, slightly earthy taste. This is served atop a Filipino-style array of goodies, which include coconut, agar (vegan gell), pinipig rice, beans, taro, fruit preserves, flan. The mixture might sound weird, but it’s a surprisingly good and filling combination.
