A New Casual Dining Concept Joins International Market Place
(Sponsored) Kūhiō Ave Food Hall takes over the Waikīkī mall’s ground-level space with gourmet smash burgers, Taco Tuesdays and more.
Riffing on its previous owner’s concept, the locally owned Kūhiō Ave Food Hall, which took over the former The Street Food Hall space last year, houses a variety of different casual dining restaurants with dishes that focus on taste, quality and reasonable price points. Three restaurants are currently open: Aloha Pizzeria, serving fresh-made pies; Banzai Burger, with a diner-style menu that specializes in juicy gourmet smash burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches and more; and La Piña Cantina, which offers delicious Mexican eats, Taco Tuesday deals, all-day drink specials and live music on select nights. The space has three bars as well, including the Tipsy Tiki, an Island-themed bar featuring tropical cocktails and other libations. A new concept, Hashi & Spoon, is slated to open soon, with others to follow. Online ordering is also available for those on the go.
White Claw summer is a trend that’s here to stay. And, since summer is a year-round season celebrated here in the Islands, you have every reason to pop a can with your meal. My personal favorite to pair with an ice-cold White Claw with is the Waimea Burger, a towering smash burger with two beef patties, bacon, cheese, sautéed onions and a secret Banzai sauce. You’ll need two hands and a ton of napkins, but, boy, does it satisfy after a sunny day at the beach.
