Fans of the casual Wahoo’s Fish Taco on Ward Avenue will be happy to hear that at the newest location in Kahala there seems to be even more fun on the menu. Live music and a full bar that’s open until midnight on weeknights and 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday gives the Kahala restaurant a more vibrant appeal than ever.

“We make everything from scratch at our bar, and we’re really proud to say our margaritas are made with fresh-squeezed ingredients,” says Kahala store manager Randall Transfiguracion. “We even make our own sweet and sour in-house.”

With pupu served until midnight from Sunday to Thursday, and until 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday there’s even more reason to drop by the newest Wahoo’s, especially after seeing a movie at nearby Kahala Mall.

At Kahala, you’ll find the same fresh, fun food on a menu that includes soft tacos, soups, salads, sandwiches and specialty Wahoo’s Bowls (meats, fish or veggie entrees served over rice and black or spicy Cajun white beans).

  • The new Wahoo's location is at Kahala Korner, 4614 Kilauea Avenue.
  • Margaritas with fresh ingredients are available at the newly opened Wahoo's.
  • The bright, beachy Wahoo's offers the same menu as the Ward location, with flat screen TVs, outdoor seating and a full bar.

If you’re trying Wahoo’s for the first time, you may want to go for its No. 2 Combo — tacos or enchiladas filled with anything from blackened or flame-broiled fish to sauteed teriyaki vegetables, grilled chicken, sauteed shrimp, marinated steak or pot-braised pork. The combo plate comes with ahee rice (Wahoo’s signature rice) and a choice of black beans
or spicy Cajun-style white beans. If you’re a healthier eater, then you’ll like Wahoo’s approach — fat is pulled from the pork, and beans aren’t the lard-filled, refried variety. The No. 5 Combo Plate is a big seller, too, where the taco or enchilada plate comes with any choice of filling and three taquitos with rice and beans.

“We have live music on Tuesdays and Fridays from 6 to 9 p.m.,” says Transfiguracion, “and on Wednesday nights we have a balloon artist who’s here from 5 to 7 to entertain kids.”

Flat screen TVs play sports throughout the day, and Wahoo’s beachy bar is a great place to catch your favorite team — and a freshly made margarita.
