Kenichi Pacific: Fantastic Sushi - Incredible Cuisine Keauhou Shopping Center Review

While most of your tourist spots are found on the north end of Ali'i Drive, head south to the end, to the Keauhou Shopping Center for first class Asian fussion cuisine. In this not so extraordinary shopping plaza, near the Wendy's, is the home of Kenichi Pacific, one Chef Kenichi Kanada restaurants (also found in Aspen) which offers tranquil surroundings and incredible food. The restaurant also features a great sushi bar. Everything we had was outrageously delicious. We started with very fresh sashimi (sushi minus the rice) and each had a seafood dish.

Make sure you have reservations!!!

Favorite Dish: I had the Lemongrass Mahi, a pan seared rare, with black "forbidden rice" and mushrooms. Oh My God...heaven.

Address: Keauhou Shopping Center 78-6831 Alii Dr, Ste D-125

Price Comparison: more expensive than average

Directions: Take Ali'i Drive south to the end. At the light, there is a plaza in front of you, that's the Keauhou Shopping Center. It's in there.
