Kuhio Beach Grill – Hawaii 2013
Kuhio Beach Grill is located on the ground floor of the Waikiki Beach Marriott… just across the street from the beach! They’re known for their breakfast and dinner buffets but the reason for our visit was because of the free Mai Tais that they were offering as part of our stay.
While not actually invented in Hawaii, the Mai Tai’s tropical nature seems to lend itself with the culture. I’m not a drinker but I thought this cocktail was pretty strong. Our server brought over some more pineapple juice to try to dilute it down for us. I suppose if you’re looking for a stiff drink before heading out to the beach…
We had a pretty long day and a late lunch/early dinner at Marukame Udon so we just wanted some appys to nosh on. Surprisingly, there were still some people having the buffet late at night.
We settled on an order of Steamed Clams and a plate of Volcano Chicken Wings. The chicken wings weren’t overly hot… it was more like a sweet chili sauce. Not sure if it was the Mai Tais working their magic or not but the chicken wings were quite tasty.
When you enter the restaurant, you walk past the dessert bar. If I wasn’t so full and tired from earlier in the day, I probably would have wanted to try it out.
