Hoku's at the Kahala

5000 Kahala Ave. , Kahala Hotel & Resort
Honolulu, Oahu , HI , United States
(808) 739-8760

Located inside the Kahala Hotel & Resort, Hoku’s has earned critical praise for its inventive and upscale Pacific Rim cuisine, crafted by chef Wayne Hirabayashi. Combining both island and European design elements, the dining room has an upscale but aprroachable feel with its bamboo floors, ocean views, and open kitchen. The menu is constantly evolving to ensure that dishes are prepared with the freshest available ingredients. Offerings include Chinese house roast duck with bao buns, wok fried vegetables and orange hoisin sauce, and grilled scallops with eggplant miso and tempura asparagus.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Some of the West Coast’s finest oysters are served at the wraparound bar at this busy seafood joint inside the Ferry Building Marketplace. Selections like glistening Sweetwaters are accompanied by Acme bread, which is baked just a few doors down.

We loved: Sweetwater oysters; sand dabs with fava greens and crème fraîche; grilled three-cheese sandwich.

Insider tip: Oysters are only $1 during happy hour (Mondays and Thursdays, 5–7 p.m.).
