Hotel's eateries feature desserts
Well, you gotta give 'em points for a cute pun -- Embassy Suites on Waikiki's Beach Walk has come up with Embassy Sweets, signature desserts from two restaurants housed in the hotel.
Ruth's Chris Steak House offers chef Leighton Miyakawa's Mud Pie, with three layers of Haagen Dazs chocolate, vanilla and coffee ice creams, chunks of Oreo cookie crumbs and an Oreo crust.
At Roy's Waikiki, chef Jason peel offers a Coconut Trio, a portion of coconut crme brle, Chocolate Decadence and haupia -- with the bonus of a Bubbies coconut chocolate mochi ice cream.
Although both restaurants have multiple locations nationwide, these desserts are on the menus only at their Embassy Suites sites.
