5 Restaurants on Our Radar

BY Ning Chao and Nuy Cho | June 15, 2018 | Feature Features

The 39 most fascinating things happening in Hawai`i's food scene.
The newly updated Hoku's

Hoku’s at The Kahala Hotel & Resort
Along with a refreshed look, new menu items, like the dried scallop-nameko mushroom rice, make Hoku's worth a visit. 5000 Kahala Ave., Kahala, 739.8760

Toridokoro Matsumoto
This special yakitori restaurant opens its doors with an invite only (there’s no available address or phone number). Chef-owner Osamu Yamamoto wanted to bring East Asian hidden eateries to Honolulu with, and if you can get in, it’ll be worth every bite.

Humble Market Kitchin
Chef Roy Yamaguchi’s fourth restaurant concept nestled in the Wailea Beach Resort pays tribute to classic plantation food in Maui. 3700 Wailea Alanui Drive, Kihei, 879.4655

The Pig and the Lady
Still going strong as an island favorite for the likes of Jack Black, the Hawaii Five-0 cast and locals alike, this hot spot isn’t showing any signs of fizzing out. Check out the new menu. 83 N. King St., Chinatown, 585.8255

For a stellar pour, take a break at Vino's, a 2018 James Beard Award semifimalist for best wine program. 500 Ala Moana Blvd., Ste. 6F, Kaka`ako, 524.8466
