Traditional Hawaiian Restaurant Highway Inn Keeps Up With the 21st Century

Monica had been thinking about a town location for Highway Inn for a while, to grow the company and to introduce a new audience to her grandfather’s legacy. Late last year, she opened the new Highway Inn in Kakaako, and I love it even more than the original. It is contemporary without forgetting its roots. It serves the same Hawaiian food as the original, down to the naau puaa, while offering new dishes such as whole fried akule and poi (fish and poi, seemingly a no-brainer for a Hawaiian food restaurant and yet so rare) and modern nostalgic desserts including poi Twinkies and a pineapple upside-down cake with kiawe-bean flour."This month:

Waipahu Highway Inn restaurant moves to new Waipahu location

"The new place will be next to the Waipahu Rail Transit station. The 5,000-square-foot restaurant will have more seating, a bar and live music on Fridays. Earlier breakfast hours are planned to launch in February, and there are plans to introduce some of the more popular items currently only found at the Kakaako location, such as the Smoked Moco. They will have a state-of-the-art photovoltaic system, which is expected to produce nearly all of the restaurant’s power needs."
