Slow-cooked to perfection in an underground rock oven called an imu, meat-lovers can’t get enough of this traditional Hawaiian dish. Think American pulled pork, but substitute the tangy BBQ sauce for a rich woodsmoke flavor that goes great over rice. Seconds, anyone?
Sushi + Spam? Yes please! Nowhere is the rich history of Hawaii more on display than in this seemingly incongruous (yet simply scrumptious) pairing. Hawaii’s ultimate handheld snack combines the iconic canned meat (popular with GIs stationed here during World War II) with rice and a nori wrapping. The result is an east-meets-west fusion experience you won’t find anywhere else.
Dim sum fans will note the Asian influences in this delicious Hawaiian steamed dumpling stuffed with pork, shrimp, and water chestnuts, all served with a side of soy sauce and spicy mustard.
This sweet treat is made with thinly shaved ice flakes and colorful syrup, flavored with local fruits like pineapple, guava, mango, and passionfruit. Unlike the crushed ice used in a snow cone, the delicate ice shavings allow the syrup to absorb completely rather than sink to the bottom. Which means every bite is as flavorful as the last.
Chocolate Haupia Pie
A dessert-lover’s dream, this popular Hawaiian twist on the traditional coconut cream pie is decadent, rich, and a definite favorite. The pie layers whipped cream and chocolate with traditional coconut milk pudding called haupia (pronounced “how-pee-uh”) over a delicious macadamia nut crust. The result? Well, it’s nothing short of amazing.
If Japan’s sashimi and Peru’s ceviche had a baby, it would be poke. This raw seafood salad consists of cubes of tuna marinated to perfection in soy sauce and sesame oil. Try it tossed with Hawaiian chili, Maui onions, cucumbers, sea asparagus, and a side of house-made nori rice chips at our award-winning 100 Sails Restaurant & Bar.
Another mouthwatering 100 Sails signature dish, Ahi Kama uses the “collar” of the yellowtail (a naturally juicy cut that’s at once succulent and sustainable), grilled to perfection and flavored with daikon, pickled ginger, and a side of ponzu.
Hawaiian food culture is all about fusion — and so is this signature 100 Sails dish! A perfectly marbled Waygu beef patty meets caramelized onions and brie cheese for a classic American favorite with a decidedly Japanese twist.
