Pūlehu, an Italian Grill
Chocolate almond olive oil cake. Just the name sells it. Personally, I love almond cake. Add chocolate and olive oil—two ingredients that are good for my health—and this cake hits a homerun at the end of a meal, regardless of what came before! A rich, dense confection studded with Ku’ia chocolate pieces, I remember the very first time I sampled it at Pūlehu. So utterly chocolatey-satisfying and delicious, I was tempted to take a piece home. Served with a scoop of pink amarena (cherry gelato) and sprinkled with crunchy house-made chocolate granola, trust me when I say try it!
