How do you want to celebrate?
Let’s go all out!
Alan Wong’s tl;dr
- 1996 James Beard award-winning Chef Alan Wong
- Hawaiian Melting Pot of Cultural Flavors
- Local Farm/Ocean to Table Daily Dinners
Celebrating anything is always a great reason to go out and indulge in some fine dining. Having literally eaten all over the island, it’s something that we don’t spoil ourselves to often with considering all the amazing food options out there.
During out time in Oahu, Nadia thought it best to at least have one fine dining experience. I knew she had one particular place in mind and suggested Alan Wong’s. She didn’t even seem phased at my reply and feigned surprise as if she never heard of them. I simply mentally rolled my eyes and chuckled as she made reservations.
It’s funny how you remember certain things about a place, typically the best parts minus the less that perfect details. In this particular case, I totally forgot that Alan Wong’s isn’t at the beach or high rise building or even a hotel. I pulled up to an office building in downtown and had the car parked as we took the elevator to an enclosed 2nd floor.
What I do remember, as the elevator doors opened, was the inviting ambiance of a restaurant that was waiting to “wow” us with their sustainable culinary expertise showcasing the island’s freshest harvest.
A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words
Given the lighting of these pictures, I’ll take only about 250 words to showcase the things we ordered:
- Foie gras
- Poached butter Lobster
- The Coconut Dessert
- And more

What to Do There

Our experience there was nothing short of amazing and everything came out just right. Who knew sustainable foods could taste so good!?!? Don’t forget to try a cocktail while you’re there to flesh out your meal.
