JJ Bistro & French Pastry - Kaimuki: $15 for $30 Worth of French-Fusion Fare at JJ Bistro & French Pastry

A marriage between two cuisines is preferable to a marriage between two clones of Sylvester Stallone, a process that eventually results in a baby reared on raw egg and meat punching bags. Savor a simpler fusion with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of French-Laotian-fusion fare at JJ Bistro & French Pastry.

Serving plates straight from the center of a French-and-Laotian Venn diagram, JJ's pleases palates and keeps taste buds on their toes. A multifaceted menu combines Laotian curries, tamarind, and satay meat with French staples, such as puff pastry, eggplant, and truffles, creating two-headed culinary beasts that wink seductively at diners with their four eyes. Menu items include flavorful warm-ups of appetizers and soups ($3.50–$6.95) as well as a varied selection of meat-bedecked and vegetarian-friendly entrees ($5.25–$11.95). JJ's also offers a wide range of award-winning French pastries, tarts, and cakes ($3.50–$6), such as the house-specialty chocolate pyramid cake, a toothsome triumvirate of cocoa with a moussey center and decadent dusting of bitter-chocolate powder. Of-age diners are invited to bring an alcoholic beverage to complement a meal or loosen tongues to compliment meal companions.

Reviews

  • In each dish, the pastry crust had just the right mouth feel and balance of crispness and absorbency. – Michael R., Yelp
  • I like how beautifully crafted the pastries were…I would definitely recommend checking this place out!! – Ryan C., Yelp

JJ Bistro & French Pastry

Chef JJ built himself an empire out of sugar, complete with chocolate pyramids covered in cocoa powder. He wanted to bring all things European to Hawaii, so he founded JJ Bistro & French Pastry, where he crafts delectable desserts and a menu of entrees fusing French influence with local ingredients. His baked lamb wellington features crisp bell pepper within a shelf of flaky pastry, and his seafood brioche combines the daily catch with shiitake mushrooms and black-pepper sauce. In addition to the aforementioned chocolate pyramids, he crafts key-lime tarts, chocolate-banana confit, and black-currant cassis in individual servings. He just uses bigger mixing bowls to create the same mouthwatering cakes for birthdays or weddings.

Despite the general European flair, the chef can't resist showing off local cuisine in all its glory with his daily specials of fresh-caught seafood. The mini seafood menu features shrimp, mussels, crab, and lobster, cooked to order and bedecked in one of four sauces, such as garlic butter or J'Jun sauce, Chef JJ's blend of Cajun spices with seldom-used contractions.
