Sheraton offers 'lo-carb' food and drinks

The Sheraton resorts are introducing an extensive line of low-carbohydrate food and beverage, "Lo-Carb Lifestyle by Sheraton," at its six hotels on Oahu, Maui and Kauai.

The program features 16 new dishes and six drinks. The first phase includes breakfast and all-day dining menus in many bars and lounges. The low-carb program will be extended this month to catering, banquets, room service and carryout snack.

Most of the items, developed by Sheraton executive chef Richard Faeh, contain less than 5 net grams of carbohydrates.

In Waikiki, find the new items at Ocean Terrace, Kau Kau Express and Esprit Bar (Sheraton Waikiki); Beachside Cafe and Beach Bar (Moana Surfrider); Pikake Terrace and Pikake Lounge (Princess Kaiulani); and the Mai Tai Bar (Royal Hawaiian).

The new items are also available at the Sheraton Kauai and Sheraton Maui.

Examples: portobello chicken burger, Mediterranean garlic chicken, salmon lettuce wraps, New York sirloin, buffalo chicken wings.

More than 200 Sheraton hotels across nationwide launched low-carb menus in April.

The Timely New York Style Cheesecake is among low-carb options now on the menu at Sheraton hotels.

Low-carb stir-fry

Gourmet Express at Kahala Mall has added a Low Carb Stir-Fry Bar. The format is similar to Mongolian barbecue, allowing diners to pick ingredients for a cook to prepare. Choices include lean meats and tofu, vegetables and seasonings for $6.95 a plate.
