MW Restaurant near Waikiki for Hawaii Regional Cuisine
Posted by Unknown | Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Honolulu has long been known as a great food destination due to it's locational influences of both east and west sides of the world.  Luckily for those of you staying in our Waikiki Vacation Rentals, our units are all just minutes away from some of the best cuisine in the world including the newly opened MW Restaurant near Ala Moana Shopping Center.

This Oahu restaurant, located closest to our Ala Moana Hotel Vacation Rentals, and our Royal Kuhio vacation rentals, is the venture of husband-and-wife team Michelle and Wade Ueoka, and is officially open now for lunch and dinner.  They’ve set up house in one of the refurbished spaces in the former KGMB building at 1538 Kapiolani Blvd., with valet or self-parking available via an entrance on Makaloa Street.  You will see it on the Makaloa side of the Shops at Kapiolani development, in a bright, inviting space of tall windows, high ceilings and an open kitchen.

Inside, you'll see Wade directing the chefs in the kitchen and Michelle looking over the stunning amount of counter space plating desserts.  Both were long-time alums of Alan Wong’s Restaurant, he as chef de cuisine and she as pastry maestro.
A great way to experience the restaurant is to come between 2pm and 5pm when they have tasting plates for only $5!  Below is a photo showing some of the choices for $5.00:

Wade Ueoka has a broad culinary background, ranging from Zippy’s to Alex in Las Vegas to The French Laundry in California’s Napa Valley. His stint with Alan Wong began as a prep cook and he worked his way up to executive chef.
Michelle Karr-Ueoka worked at Planet Hollywood, Kahala Mandarin Hotel, Westin Maui and The French Laundry before joining Alan Wong’s.
It's a great family friendly restaurant with plenty of items that kids will love as well, so check it out!
