Hoku’s at the Kahala Resort

Hoku’s is a fantastic choice for creative fusion food, as the restaurant merges Asian, Hawaiian, and European flavors to perfection. Expect a twist on contemporary island classics, like salt crusted rack of lamb or Kurobuta pork chop with Maui gold pineapple and shishito peppers.
