Duke’s Waikiki – Hawaii 2013
Duke’s Waikiki is named after one of the most famous Hawaiian citizens, Duke Paoa Kahinu Mokoe Hulikohola Kahanamoku, who first brought surfing and Hawaii to prominence. Located in the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach, this restaurant is very popular and we had a half hour wait to get in at 8:30pm.
Each entrée at Duke’s comes with their famous salad bar. They had a nice selection of veggies and pasta salads… that big round ball that you see in the picture below was an interesting taro bun that was purple on the inside.
My order of Sautéed Mac Nut and Herb Crusted Swordfish had a firm and meaty flesh (you can choose the type of fish from their daily fresh selection).
The Seafood Luau comes with scallops, shrimp, fish and veggies in a coconut cream sauce that is a bit spicy but a little too salty for my liking.
This is a good place to come for the fresh seafood, the salad bar, and the entertainment (they have musicians come by to the tables to serenade you while you dine).
