Eating in Honolulu – Alan Wong – The Pineapple Room
Saturday afternoon, you can often find us having lunch at The Pineapple Room, sitting at the counter.
Check out the Kim Chee Reuben Sandwich.
Alan Wong says, ” One of my goals is to help our staff achieve their goals and become more successful. The Pineapple Room was born when one of my chefs expressed a desire to have his own restaurant to run.” One individual's inspiration and goal sparked a good pairing with Chef Wong's simmering ideas for breakfast and lunch, as King Street (Alan Wong) only serves dinner.
Serving breakfast on weekends, lunch daily and dinner six times a week, the Hawaii Regional Cuisine menu presents an array of dishes evoking many of Hawaii's ethnic flavors.
Here are two of our favorites:
Pineapple Room “Bento” – Miso Butter Fish, Chickenn Karaage and Chirashi Rice.
Crispy Asian Slaw – Won Bok, Crispy Won Ton Pi, Peanuts, Soy Vinaigrette.
Other favorites on the menu are:
“Pineapple Room Burger” – Kiawe-Grilled Kuahiwi Ranch Natural Beef Burger with Onion Rings, Beacon, Chedar Cheese and Avacodo Salsa.
Sesame “Bubu” Crusted Opah – Shiitake Gobo Salad, Soba, Yuzu Ponzu.
For dinner there is an extensive choice: Grilled Jidori Chicken and Shrimp Dumplings; Soy Braised Shortrib & Kauai Prawns; Sizzling “Hapa” Poke.
