Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar (Hawaii 2017): Happy Hour

Sansei Seafood Restaurant and DK Steakhouse have been two of our favourite spots to dine in Waikiki since we first found them a few years ago. And although we were aiming to try a bunch of new restaurants, the pull of delicious food from Sansei Seafood couldn’t keep us away.

d.k. Steak House (Hawaii 2016) – Boneless Beef Short Ribs

Two of our favourite restaurants in Waikiki are Sansei Seafood Restaurant and their sister restaurant, d.k. Steak House… both located on the third floor of the Waikiki Beach Marriott. We had initially planned on visiting Sansei for their happy hour but it was so busy that we wound up going next door to d.k. Steak House.

The Keg (Dunsmuir) – Kansas City Strip

We had a bit of communication problem when we were supposed to meet some friends for dinner in November. We thought they meant the Keg on Alberni… as it turned out… they meant the Keg on Dunsmuir. So, after a brisk and chilly walk, we finally made it to the corner of Dunsmuir and Granville and were whisked upstairs.

d.k. Steak House (Waikiki 2015) – Dry-Aged Goodness

Back in August, we visited Waikiki and had the best meal at d.k. Steak House. For some reason, I must have forgotten to write up this blog entry… which is a shame because it was the best steak that I’ve ever had.

Pepper Lunch Canada – DIY Teppanyaki

The great thing about Instagram is that you get to see all the great food people are trying in your area. The bad thing is that you start getting a serious case of FOMO because you’re not eating the same thing right now.

The Keg Steakhouse + Bar (Alberni St) – Rib Steak, Chicago-Style

The Keg recently opened up a new location last year in the Shangri-La Hotel on Alberni. This 2nd floor location is rather interesting as the restaurant and lounge are split into two sides with separate patios (the lounge patio has a view of Alberni and the restaurant has a view of West Georgia).

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.

Keg Steakhouse & Bar (Still Creek) – Filet Mignon and Prime Rib with Snow Crab

We’ve been to the Keg at Still Creek a number of times and have tried most of their different steak options… like the Kansas City Strip and the Flat Iron Steak.  On this last visit in November, we tried a couple of different choices. Read the rest of this entry

Keg Steakhouse and Bar (New West) – Mushroom Madness

My choice for dinner is usually the same when I hit the Keg.  Over the years, I’ve tried many of their other items… from the prime rib to the sirloins and the chicken dishes.  But I always find myself coming back to the rib steak.  Read the rest of this entry
