Five Ways to be Merry and Bright at Waikiki Beach Walk

November 15, 2022

Yellow tropical cocktail with pineapple & cherry garnishes.Let’s face it, holiday décor is very pleasant and goes a long way to get you in the holiday spirit, but for many, the real joy of the holidays is the food. And for those who love the holidays for the food, they are in luck, because food has been a fundamental part of Hawaiian culture since... well, the beginning of Hawaiian culture (see: Hawaiians, luau), and Waikiki Beach Walk has a long tradition of honoring Hawaiian culture.
So along with superb mele (music) and hula presentations through the season (check them out here), here are the tastiest ways to enjoy holiday feasting at Waikiki Beach Walk. 

First up, is the granddaddy of feasts in America, Thanksgiving. And Yard House wants to add a little volume to that special day, with a proud promotion they modestly call, “Thanksgiving like all the others, but with louder music and 250 kegs.”

All in all, it sounds like a perfectly brash and spicey twist on a traditionally reflective day.

Filet mignon & lobster tailRuth’s Chris Steak House is also adding some sizzle to this holiday season, going all out in preparation to handle any kind of holiday celebration you have in mind. Whether it’s intimate family gatherings... large family gatherings... full, office wide company holiday parties, or a holiday treat just for  your special co-workers, Ruth’s Chris is ready to make any holiday gathering super-special.

Sauteed foie gras over a bed of risottoNamed after the charming southern Sicilian town, Taormina Sicilian Cuisine has Executive Chef Hiro Mimura adding a modern flair to traditional Sicilian dishes, honoring the simplistic beauty of light sauces paired with fresh pasta, grilled fish, lamb, and steamed vegetables seasoned with an array of herbs. The results are ono (Hawaiian), Oishi (Japanese) and of course, delizioso (we’ll let you guess that one) other words, delicious in any language.

This is a very serious selection of delectable-ness
This includes the best pizza in Waikiki, and of course, as their proud name implies, the best pastrami in Waikiki, which obviously also means the best Reuben sandwich in Waikiki.
Of course, when anyone mentions Roy’s, they automatically think of souffles. Actually, most people think of dynamic, fusion cuisine, as Roy Yamaguchi was one of the founders of Hawaiian Regional Cuisine, which featured innovative combinations of Pacific Island cooking with locally sourced ingredients. And that makes for a delectable fusion of you, Roy’s, and your family or co-workers for holiday gatherings.
