Seven-thousand square feet of al fresco fun awaits at Búho Cocina y Cantina. The restaurant’s ocean-view rooftop setting, tribal-patterned walls and lively salsa music make it the perfect spot to unwind, dine and dance in Waikīkī.
Owner Hide Sakurai designed the space to have the feel of a modern-day Mexican street party, and commissioned contemporary artist Aaron De La Cruz to paint the restaurant’s signature graffiti-inspired wall murals. The rest of the fiesta vibe comes from the eatery's saucy décor—open fire pits, animal-skin trims and lush foliage—and spicy, new-school Mexican dishes.
Pulling in fresh, local ingredients and sexying them up with bold, south-of-the-border-style spices and seasonings, dishes like the Mexican Pork Lau Lau, Pineapple Pico Pork Belly Tacos and Grilled Kona Lobster will take your tastebuds on a global, culinary adventure.
Búho Cocina y Cantina, Waikīkī Shopping Plaza, #525, 808-922-2846.
Sponsored by Volcom Hawai‘i, 11-year-old Jackson Bunch (below right) and 10-year-old Keanu “Anu” Taylor (below left), are making, and catching, huge waves on the local and national surf circuit. These talented groms love getting barreled on the North Shore of O‘ahu, and their winning (and adorable) faces have been splashed across top surfing magazines. Off shore, Bunch can be found luring in big-game ‘ahi with his dad and uncles, while Taylor, an extreme-sport enthusiast, enjoys hitting the kickboxing mat.
