Hawaii Mom Blog: Happy Hour at Monkeypod Kitchen

Happy Hour at Monkeypod Kitchen

I FINALLY made it to Ko Olina to try Monkeypod Kitchen by Merriman, which has been open for years. Friends have raved about it's mouth-watering and affordable Happy Hour menu, and Gem has blogged about this restaurant numerous times (most recently exactly a year ago!), therefore I was really excited when our Sunday afternoon plans brought us out to the West side.

Happy Hour starts at 3 pm, and we arrived just in time for the start of it. The hostess asked us if we wanted to sit inside or outside, and before I could respond, she said that the table that was available inside was in the sun, so she recommended that we sit outside. I took her word for it, but if I could do it again, I would highly recommend sitting inside (I'll explain in a bit).

When we got seated, we immediately put in an order for a cheese pizza for the boys, and it came out really quick. I love places that whip out the kids meals quickly since as we all know, hungry toddlers are like ticking time bombs.

The boys loved the cheese pizza!

The hubby and I shared a handful of appetizers, which were all 50% off because it was Happy Hour ...

Garlic Truffle Oil Fries

Pumpkin Patch Ravioli

Wood-Roasted Free Range Chicken Wings

Kauai Shrimp & Hamakua Mushroom Potstickers

And of course, you cannot skip dessert at Monkeypod - they are known for their pies, so we ordered a slice of strawberry pie. Usually my boys do not partake in the desserts that I order, however, they ended up eating 99% of it!

The nice thing about sitting outside is seeing the Hawaiian Railway Train (my boys got so excited as it made its way past the restaurant).

However, I would not recommend sitting outside for three reasons - it's HOT, there are flies, and birds.

Otherwise, Monkeypod is a great place for Happy Hour dining! :)
