Hula Grill (Hawaii 2017): Breakfast at the Beach

Breakfast and Hawaii are two of my favourite things… put them together and I’m a very happy camper. Hula Grill is located in the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort, directly above their popular sister restaurant, Duke’s Waikiki.

One of the great things about Hula Grill is that their elevated position above Duke’s gives you a great view of Waikiki Beach. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a Guava Tropical Soda ($4) mixed with lemon and lime or a Papaya Limeade ($5) with ripe papaya and lime slush.

On our first visit here, we ordered the Sweet Potato and Chorizo Hash ($13) which is served with Kahuku corn, sweet Maui onions, and roasted red peppers along with hollandaise over your poached eggs. There was lots of yummy chorizo sausage mixed in with the saucy sweet potato hash.

We also ordered the Lobster and Asparagus Benny ($20) with Kona cold lobster, tarragon, and hollandaise on a toasted steamed bun. While the seasoned potatoes lacked a crispness to the exterior, they were soft on the inside and were good for sopping up the creamy mix of runny egg yolk and hollandaise.

We enjoyed our first meal so much that we came back for a revisit on the last day of our trip and got to listen to the surf crashing on the beach as surfers caught waves with Diamond Head in the background.

This time, we opted for the Mango Tropical Soda ($4) and the POG ($4.50) which is a mix of passionfruit, orange, and guava juices.

The Croissant French Toast ($13) with bacon and fresh mango chunks was soft with layers of airy pastry that contrasted with the crisp bacon.

Rice is a staple in Hawaii… so much so that it’s common to find it in breakfast dishes. That’s no more apparent than with the Fried Rice Fo’ Days ($13). Served with smoked bacon, Kukui Portuguese sausage, and topped with two fried eggs… yup, a carb-lover’s dream come true.

If you’re looking for a breakfast spot in the heart of Waikiki with a view of the beach, it doesn’t get much better than Hula Grill.
