Chef Alan Wong's Pineapple Room is located in an unlikely place...on the second floor of Macy's at Ala Moana Shopping Center. The food, though, is anything but pedestrian exhibiting the creative talents of this Island chef. Food is fresh and thoughtfully prepared. Local ingredients are featured including tropical fruits, native fish, and meat are grilled not with mesquite but with kiawe (kee-AH-vay), a native hardwood.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are on offer and all provide a number of choices that will make all members of your dining party happy. Breakfast and lunch prices are accordingly more affordable than dinner, not that dinner prices are exhorbitant for foodies like us. The menu has regular selections plus daily specials featuring items that were obtained fresh that morning. Dinner also offers a fixed-price menu with five courses for $60, quite a deal for a restaurant of this quality.

The Pineapple Room, while at the major tourist mall in Honolulu, is more frequented by the locals who know a good thing when the taste it!

Favorite Dish: Garlic crusted inago, kiawe grilled tenderloin, chocolate crunch dessert, lilikoi cheesecake. Everything I've ever had for breakfast, lunch, and dinner has been great. I seriously don't think you can go wrong here.
