Food Finds: Waikiki
Just a stone's throw from the Waikiki Parc, Wasabi Bistro has made itself at home in the heartbreakingly charming Breakers Hotel. The hotel's indoor-outdoor oasis is at once contemporary, casual and cool, blocking out the loud throngs bustling just outside its doors for the perfect dining escape.
Route your way to this retro restaurant to partake in sushi, sake and some serious teishoku specialties (like chicken katsu, hamburger steak and shrimp tempura). If you're still full from lunch you can dabble in Wasabi Bistro's appetizers (starting at about $5-$7) and share a sushi set, like their signature Wasabi Sushi Roll Platter. Can you say "oishi?"
A popular escape for local Waikiki workers, Wasabi Bistro is a nice escape from the traditional lunch routine. We love treating ourselves to their very reasonable daily lunch special whenever we can take a longer-than-average lunch break.
