Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort’s popular restaurant, Pulehu, an Italian Grill has announced a new dessert menu beginning Thursday, August 6, 2015 which will feature a fresh take on classic desserts.

The recently appointed chef de cuisine, Alvin Savella announced in a press release that, “Pulehu is known for offering classic Italian fare with a twist”. He went on to say, “I wanted to bring this concept to our dessert menu by re-imagining some traditional Italian dishes and adding a taste of local flavor.”

The new dessert menu features three specialties and three very popular favorites – sorbet, gelato and affogato (for those who may not know, affogato is a coffee-based beverage. It usually takes the form of a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream topped with a shot of hot espresso).

The three new specialties include budino, textures of tiramisu and zeppole:
