Internationally acclaimed Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto announced the much anticipated opening date of Morimoto Asia Waikiki, one of two new restaurants at the all-new Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach. Set to open on February 15, Morimoto Asia Waikiki will be Alohilani Resort’s signature restaurant, and the only destination in Oahu to experience Chef Morimoto’s cuisine.

With Hawaii fast becoming the seat of modern fusion cuisine combined with the growing demand for the Iron Chef’s unique offerings, Waikiki is the perfect location for Japanese master chef Morimoto’s latest venture.

“I look forward to opening Morimoto Asia Waikiki at Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach, especially since the island of Oahu is a very special place to me,” said Chef Morimoto. “The stunning ocean and sunset views combined with the distinct culinary experience we will provide will surely leave a lasting impression with our guests traveling near and far.”

Reflective of Chef Morimoto’s infectious energy, the vibrant Morimoto Asia Waikiki restaurant will showcase Chef Morimoto’s iconic cuisine that seamlessly integrates Western and traditional Asian ingredients with unmatched creativity and innovation. His unique take on Pan-Asian cuisine is fused with flavors and techniques inspired by his world travels. The dinner-only menu will feature an eclectic take on some of his Asian favorites with emphasis on flavors representing China, Korea, Japan, Thailand and other regions of Asia and India. Some of the signature dishes that present Chef’s spin include Peking duck, sticky ribs, lo mein, tuna pizza, Korean kalbi, dim sum and traditional wok fry dishes such as kung pao chicken and Thai lobster chow fun.

Located on the second floor of the resort, Morimoto Asia Waikiki will bring an interactive culinary experience to Waikiki Beach, courtesy of a glass-encased exhibition kitchen that will offer a behind-the-scenes glimpse into culinary preparations and traditions, and two outdoor lanais with views of the world famous beaches and sunsets that have made Waikiki an ideal vacation destination for decades.

In addition to the main dining room and outdoor patios, an ocean-facing private dining room with large glass windows and breathtaking views can accommodate intimate celebrations and special events. The 10,800 square-foot restaurant will be Chef Morimoto’s second Morimoto Asia location as the first opened in 2015 as the flagship restaurant of the re-imagined Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort.

Chef Morimoto is also set to debut Momosan Waikiki at Alohilani Resort later this year. This will be the second Momosan location, with the first location opened in New York City in 2016. More information will be announced as it becomes available.

The product of a $115 million, head-to-toe transformation of the Pacific Beach Hotel, the all-new Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach recently debuted as Hawaii’s sophisticated modern resort destination in the heart of Waikiki. The resort features striking “aloha chic” design from acclaimed New York design and architecture firm Rockwell Group across all 839 guest rooms and suites, a soaring lobby with a 280,000-gallon saltwater oceanarium, five new culinary concepts, a see-and-be-seen destination pool deck, a world-class fitness center,  intimate spa, movement studio and more. Residing on land held by the Queen Lili’uokalani Trust, the resort’ new name of Alohilani – Hawaiian for “the heavenly brightness” – was carefully chosen to honor Hawaii’s beloved last reigning monarch.
