House without a Key fires up the kiawe grill




Left: the grill setup; right: boereworse.

Kiawe wood smoke hazing the view of Diamond Head. Kanoe Miller dancing. The sun dropping into  the water, garnering more paparazzi than Kim Kardashian dropping into Yogurtland. A grilled boereworse roll and Lebanese lamb chop. Oh, just another barbecue in Hawaii. 

Or at least in House-without-a-Key land. For the rest of October, Halekulani's terrace restaurant sets up a grill in the open air and grills up flavors from executive chef Vikram Garg's experiences: a ginger yogurt marinated chicken with mint chutney, Jamaican jerk pork chops with mango and heart of palm salsa, the aforementioned boereworse, a South African beef and pork sausage. In House without a Key's rendition, it's hefty, meant to be sandwiched in bread with tomato onion salsa. The Lebanese lamb chops—three succulent pieces—served with pita and tahini sauce, is shawarma gussied up.

Altogether, a lovely way to spend an evening—but then, you already knew that about House without a Key. They just made it even better.

Entrees $22 (BBQ pulled pork burger) to $69 (Garlic butter Kona lobster). Halekulani's "Barbecues from around the World" available Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays at House without a Key until October 30, halekulani.com/living/dining/house_without_a_key/
