One of Honolulu’s best restaurants MW Restaurant, showcasing excellent Pacific Rim cuisine by husband and wife duo Chef Wade Ueoka and Pastry Chef Michelle Kerr-Ueoka.
At dinner, ordering the mochi-crusted Kona Kanpachi is a good suggestion.
This unique fish preparation is what made Chef Wade famous and brought attention to the restaurant. Served with seasonal local vegetables and a vinegar-based sauce.
Their Fried Chicken is a play on traditional Chinese pressed duck aside gorgeously plated Ahi Poke Nachos.
