April 9, 2003



            Brunch on the Beach, returns to Kalakaua Avenue this Sunday, April 13, 2003, from 9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.  The very popular monthly special event transforms Kalakaua Avenue, from Kaiulani to Liliuokalani Avenue in front of the Hyatt, into a fantastic outdoor café, and features an extensive brunch menu at incredibly low prices.  The entertainment is the best, and it’s free.


            Hawai‘i’s finest chefs will serve signature salads, entrées, desserts, and beverages.  This Sunday, Chris Colgate and his Duke’s Waikiki crew will feature their fabulous Hula Pie for $5.00 (it’s $5.95 at the restaurant) along with Duke’s Famous Caesar Salad ($2.00), Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad ($4.00), and a choice of mouth-watering Grilled Big Island Pork Ribs or Chicken, served with Macaroni Salad and Rice ($4.00).

             Pacific Beach Hotel returns after a long hiatus and will be grilling two items that always sell out at Waikiki ho`olauleas:  The Pulehu BBQ Chicken Plate ($6.00) and Paniolo BBQ Rib Plate $7.00).  Both are served with Potato Macaroni Salad, Steamed White Rice and Corn-on-the-Cobbettes

             Also returning to Brunch this month is Executive Chef James Palmer and All Star Hawaii.  For just $5.00, guests can choose from a Kalua Pork wrapped with Avocado and Cabbage Slaw, Caesar Salad with scrumptious Blackened Ahi, or Jerk Chicken with a Spicy Honey Glaze.  Or, the Marinated Mongolian Beef for $6.00.

             Hau Tree Lanai’s Executive Chef Ken Furuta will feature his Thai Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce, Coconut Rice and Asian Slaw ($4.00) and Carrot Cake Delight with Strawberry Sauce ($3.00).  Last month Chef Furuta introduced a Coconut-Macadamia Nut Chicken with Honey, Pineapple and Mustard Sauce with Asian Slaw ($4.00) that sold out by 12:30 p.m.  He’ll be back with more. 

             By popular demand, Executive Chef Chip Hawkins of the Renaissance Ilikai Waikiki will serve the Breakfast Plate ($6.00) with Crispy Mango Stuffed French Toast with Raspberry Sauce, Scrambled Eggs, Breakfast Sausage, and Steamed Rice.  He will also offer an exotic Kalua Duck Napoleon with Shredded Duck, Diced Tomatoes and Micro Greens Layered between Crunchy Won Ton, and served with Miso and Hoisin Vinaigrettes $$5.00).  For dessert, a Warm Caramel Apple Cobbler with Vanilla Ice Cream will be featured ($3.00).

            The Manapua Man from Seafood Village will be back in his bright red Chinese outfit strolling among guests with freshly steamed manapua.  Seafood Village will also feature a variety of Dim Sum Plates starting at $5.00.   The Shrimp Plate ($10.00) with tasty Pepper Salt Kahuku Shrimp and Seafood Fried Rice is a top-of-the-line item for this Hong Kong style restaurant located at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Resort.

             For $5.00 each, guests may purchase Restaurant Fuji’s California Roll and Tuna Roll, a Garlic Chicken Plate or Mixed Korean Barbeque Plate.  Both Plates are served with Macaroni Salad and Steamed Rice.  Restaurant Fuji will also offer Assorted Flavors of Shaved Ice ($2.00).

             Tea Chest Hawaii and Zanzabar Night Club will serve a new selection of specialty beverages.


            The entertainment is always the best and this month is no exception.  The Royal Hawaiian Band Glee Club kicks-off the show at 9:30 a.m. with a medley of “Hawai`i Calls” tunes.  At 10:30 a.m., Believe – three young ladies with high energy, diverse artistry and powerful voices – will take the stage.

             At 11:30 a.m., the stage comes alive with the Honolulu Boy Choir and the best of Hawaii’s young men in their unique combination of song and dance.  The Choir consists of boys ages 7 to 13, representing the ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds which make up Hawaii’s distinctive rainbow of cultures.
