At Ya-Ya’s Chophouse and Seafood, Pau Hana is Always On
(Sponsored) Hey, it’s happy hour somewhere, right?
At first glance, Ya-Ya’s Chophouse and Seafood seems quite different from its sister restaurant, Uncle Bo’s Pūpū Bar and Grill. But while Ya-Ya’s is a little more glam (with an equally trendy location in the Kaka‘ako neighborhood) and Uncle’s (a more casual place tucked along Kapahulu Avenue) is a little more laidback cool, the two do have one thing in common: Both are fantastic choices for kicking back with great drinks and even better food.
When I say Ya-Ya’s is a little more glam, I’m not kidding. Like its name suggests, this modern-style steakhouse specializes in top-notch steaks (including the world-renowned A-5 wagyu beef, which is flown in from Japan’s Nagasaki prefecture) and seafood. But if you’re not in the mood for $75 dry-aged bone-in rib-eye, stop by and enjoy Ya-Ya’s other wallet-friendly dining option: Happy hour, offered at the bar and in its outdoor seating area and available daily during opening hours.
The all-day happy hour menu features plenty of lighter bites (think roasted kabocha, pork belly ends, tomato bisque with a mini truffle grilled cheese), all of which pair well with the select draft beer, wine and craft cocktails on special.
Looking for a spot to host that long-overdue celebration? Now that outdoor seating can accommodate groups of up to 25 people, Ya-Ya’s has a new party menu option in the works, which will be available soon. For more information, visit yayaschophouse.com.
