Happy Hour at Chart House Waikiki (Honolulu, HI)


Like so many restaurants these days, Chart House offers a happy hour menu. Here, you can order from 7-10pm daily. It’s a prime spot overlooking the water on Ala Moana Blvd, an unbeatable ambience when sipping tropical cocktails and partaking of Hawaiian pupus. A friend of ours from Seattle joined us.

There was a small selection of drinks, including a lychee martini and fruit margaritas. The mango margarita was a fine way to start things off.

The batter on the fried calamari was light and crispy, served with sweet chili sauce that seems to be gaining popularity even on the mainland.

Firecracker unroll is essentially an opened-up sushi with the rice laid out flat, piled with poke, pickled ginger, green onions, radish sprouts and shredded nori. With all those ingredients, it could only have been made in this manner, but there was no vinegar flavor in the rice. A little messy and difficult to scoop up.

Garlic chicken nuggets were battered and deep-fried, then sprinkled with sesame seeds. These were sweetened and, therefore, not to my liking, but they weren’t bad.

There were other things on the menu, most notably a fried rice and ahi limu poke that I might order next time.
