Today, we want to invite you on a culinary journey with us in Kaka'ako. If you're ever around for a date night or a casual dinner with friends or family, here are a few places that we suggest you visit.
#5 - Yakiniku Sizzle
Yakiniku serves various types of beef such as A5 Rank Japanese beef imported from Japan, Washu beef (Half Japanese Beef, Half US Black Angus beef), and US Prime Beef. They serve their meats with their own original sauces and Japanese style presentations. They are a small and family restaurant, but that’s why they are close with their customers, and will work even harder to keep getting better.
#4 - Piggy Smalls
Piggy Smalls is the newest restaurant from Andrew Le and his team at The Pig & The Lady. Even so, this new iteration stands alone and has a unique and eclectic menu that is different from the main restaurant in Chinatown. They are open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. Piggy Smalls is a sit down service with a playful bar menu. Their intent is to be a fixture and dining destination for the emerging urban core in Kaka'ako.
#3 - Rinka Japanese Restaurant
If you like Japanese food, you're in the right place. At Rinka you will enjoy authentic Japanese cuisine in a modern setting with an open kitchen. They strive to provide the best service and cuisine in hopes that you will have a joyful and memorable experience. Offering a wide variety of dishes taking great pride in the quality of their food, Rinka is sure to be a memorable experience.
#2 - Hamada General Store
Originally a grocery store, H. Hamada Store would cater to local clientele but they closed their doors in 2007. Today, Hamada General Store is a take out/catering restaurant. It's rooted in the same values as the original H. Hamada Store, and that's to proudly serve the community with Aloha.

WorkPlay is Honolulu's Hidden Lounge located in the heart of Kaka'ako serving a TexMex menu. If you’re looking for that perfect date night spot or out celebrating your birthday with all your friends, Workplay has got the perfect spot for you.
