Guava-glazed sweet potatoes with toasted coconut, pumpkin soup with brandy and oven-roasted turkey with cranberry-ginger chutney.  These are just a few of the mouthwatering menu items that will be featured at Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk’s first-ever Thanksgiving Day Buffet. The resort will be hosting this celebratory feast on November 26, 2009 from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on its Grand Lanai at just $29.95 for adults and $15.95 for kids.

Live entertainment will take place throughout the evening, including Hawaiian music performances by Roland Chang, a member of the Na Hoku Hanohano Award-winning group Kanilau, as well as skilled hula dancers that will mesmerize guests with their graceful movements.

Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk’s Thanksgiving Day Buffet is $29.95 for adults and $15.95 for children ages 6-12, plus tax and tip; keiki under five years old are free with each adult paid buffet. Reservations are required and can be made by calling the resort at: 808-921-2345.

The Thanksgiving feast at Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk will feature a carving station of not only oven-roasted turkey, but also Hawaiian sea-salt crusted prime rib of beef with creamy horseradish and au jus. Crab-crusted mahi mahi topped with a papaya and cilantro salsa, as well as stuffed pork-loin with sun-dried papaya, mango and pineapple served with a port wine sauce are two additional entrees.

Savory sides will include Portuguese-sausage stuffing mixed with watercress; green bean casserole with smoked bacon, wild mushrooms, and fried Maui onions; corn on the cob with sweet basil-butter and roasted garlic-infused creamed potatoes. Fresh greens include a cucumber, feta and olive salad, a mix of marinated plum tomatoes and fresh mozzarella, a spinach salad with toasted pecans, diced papaya, red onions and an apple cider vinaigrette plus a broccoli salad tossed with Maui onions, cheddar cheese, raisins, and cherry tomatoes.

The sweetest part is the assortment of desserts which include warm bread pudding with crème anglaise, apple cobbler, German chocolate cake, plus pecan, pumpkin, and apple pie.

Kamaaina rates start at $179 per night for a one-bedroom suite and are available at times throughout the year on a space available basis. Proof of Hawaii residency required, and additional person charges may apply.
