The eats: Beachside bites, day and night
With a view that's one of the best in Waikiki, you’ll want to spend every meal here. The good news? You can.
Monkeypod Kitchen serves breakfast, lunch and dinner so you get to savor – all day (and night).
Savor housemade dishes like bulgogi pork tacos with handcrafted kimchi and the Big Island Cheeseburger. And don’t forget dessert.
The drinks: Handcrafted cocktails and craft beers
From a Monkeypod Mai Tai with house-made macadamia nut orgeat and honey-lilikoi foam (yes, please) to local-artisan craft beer, Monkeypod is the perfect place to sip and savor the true taste of Hawaii – against a backdrop of spectacular ocean views.
The vibe: Live music overlooking the ocean
A local favorite, the monkeypod tree is not only beautiful with its single stalk and wide canopy – it also naturally fertilizes the ground beneath it, making everything thrive. It’s this same spirit of living aloha and appreciating the Hawaii islands that Monkeypod Kitchen is founded on (that, and lots of merrymaking).
Plan to enjoy live music overlooking the ocean for the ultimate ambience and local flavor of local artists.
"Dining at Monkeypod Kitchen is a culinary exploration rich in culture, quality and fun. We look forward to sharing the bounty of Hawaiʻi's ranchers, farmers and fishers on the beach in Waikīkī and providing a sublime space for kamaʻāina and visitors alike to reconnect with friends and family while celebrating the craft of food, drink and merrimaking, with aloha."
