Perhaps the ultimate dining experience in Hawaii, Alan Wong’s is a multi-award-winning institution—and Alan Wong himself, a chef of international renown. As a key founder of Hawaii Regional Cuisine, which blends the flavors of Hawaii’s ethnic groups into exponential magnificence, Wong brings his expertise and creativity to the table. Dishes are often one-of-a-kind, from Kona lobster dumplings to “new wave” opihi shooters, Richard Ha’s whole tomato salad and North Shore farm-raised tilapia jun. True foodies will savor the experience. Service is equally top of the line. The dress code is upscale casual, with aloha shirts welcome.
