Moku Kitchen

Moku Kitchen is located on Ala Moana Blvd in Honolulu, Hawaii.

My mom has gone here with her friends multiple times, and recommended this spot. By chance, Sean, a buddy of mine who you may see on Wreckless Eating, had a 12-hour layover in Oahu while I was visiting family. He too had Moku Kitchen on his list. Talk about an awesome surprise.

Be sure to subscribe to Sean's vlog channel as well!

We both started with a local beer, each getting the Lanikai Brewing Moku Imperial IPA. A solid beer that drank rather easily for its stated 8.5% ABV.

The beer selection here is one of the best I've seen on Oahu. There's also a full bar here, if that's more your style.

The Banh Mi Burger ($14) called my name the loudest. A 7 oz patty, cooked to your liking, with pickled veggies, cilantro, and sliced jalapenos. It's served with a side of sriracha, which I threw into the burger because science.

I ordered my burger medium-rare. An excellent burger, with a juicy patty, although perhaps the burger kept cooking past med-rare into medium. I loved the bite and acidity from the pickled veggies, and the jalapenos added a bit more heat.

Sure, the prices are steep, but the panda approves this burger.

We shared a bowl of Garlic Truffle Oil fries ($8), which got topped with parmesan cheese and served with sides of whole-grain mustard aioli and house-made ketchup. Outstanding fries here, with a slightly crispy outside and pillowy inside. You'll definitely get the musky truffle oil, too. Awesome aioli and ketchup.

Sean enjoyed his teriyaki burger ($14), which was topped with watercress, kimchi, and dijon aioli.

Awesome service here. Head to Moku Kitchen for a great burger, fries, and a drink! 8.5/10
