The gist: Heiho offers a modern, whimsical izakaya experience with a rotating menu that spans Italian, Latin, and Asian cuisines.
The food: The best thing to do when dining at Heiho House is to clear yourself of any expectations and open your mind. The menu completely changes every six weeks so chef Aaron Lopez can take advantage of the seasonal produce from local farms, and to keep creative juices flowing in both preparations and combinations of different ingredients. One thing that is always consistent: Lopez will always feature some kind of ice cream for dessert, since he previously owned an ice cream company.
The cost: Dishes are a la carte and cost between $4 and $23, with most items at $14. Cocktails are $14-16, beer is $10-12, a two-ounce serving of sake is $9-14, and wine is $12-18 . Desserts are $10 with an optional $8 upcharge for a beverage pairing. Teas are $6-8.
How to book: Walk-ins are accepted, but reservations are recommended and can be made by calling 808-260-9670 or through their website.
