Venue Info

Regional Hawaiian fare shines at this stylish Ala Moana eatery helmed by husband-and-wife celebrity chef team Michelle and Wade Ueoka. Nothing is as it seems here; oxtail stew and rice contains a deboned oxtail stuffed with meat and plopped on a bed of risotto, while banana cream pie is a series of chocolate, bananas, custard, and whipped cream layered one on top of the other, tucked into a jar, and topped with an oatmeal crumble. Speaking of desserts -- the star-studded sweets menu is a cant-miss affair at MW: the Candy Bar combines macadamia nut-praline crunch, salted caramel, Waialua chocolate, and house-made cookies, while the Strawberry “Pop Tart” is a stack of puff pastry with pickled ume strawberries, li hing strawberries, and cheesecake fromage blanc.
