Can you believe the Top of Waikiki has been around since 1965? So much has changed and grown in Waikiki since then, especially around the area that the restaurant overlooks. Oh, if buildings could talk…
You have to give them credit for adjusting to the times, though. It took a while, but the Top of Waikiki gradually phased out its tired interior decor and added contemporary touches. After going through a few chefs, they’ve had Lance Kosaka at the helm for a few years now, revamping the menu to suit both local and visitor tastes, and giving flair to the hip Sky Waikiki upstairs.
Here we are, 50 years later, and they’re celebrating with a menu that features many old favorites, spruced up like a round of botox to keep them looking youthful and fun. Here’s a look at some of the items we tried that are featured on the anniversary menu, which you can order anytime. And honestly, we enjoyed them all, especially because they were great for sharing.
