The Fat Greek, specializing in classic Greek cuisine, opened a second charming and breezy spot on Ala Moana Boulevard this past February. The new location is offering sparkling specials as it prepares to celebrate its first holiday season.
The Early Bird Special, available for dine-in or takeout, starts today and presents diners with a choice of Gyros, Falafel, The Tuna Special, or Greek Salad for only $7.95 from 4 to 6 p.m. An additional $1 off beer and wine sweeten this deal.
Hilton Hawaiian Village’s weekly firework display is a great way to kick off Friday nights. Starting this month, the adored tradition will be easier to enjoy while the restaurant is providing four hours of free validation surrounding the 7:45 p.m. fireworks show.
Start your meal off by getting into the holiday spirit with the fall-colored Stuffed Sweet Peppers ($7). These mini appetizers are filled with feta cheese and shal-lots, then lightly roasted in the oven. Pita bread and house-made Papa’s Hot Sauce accompany this festive dish.
As manager George Stephanos describes, “it’s just that taste, the crunchiness when you bite into the pepper and the warmth and softness of the feta. Yea, it’s popular.”
Dining on classics like The Fat Greek Kabobs ($14.95) will make your fireworks experience the perfect holiday event. This juicy Daily Special — featuring skewered lamb or chicken alternating with onions, peppers, tomatoes and zucchini served with basmati rice and salad — is now available regularly, a testament to its exploding flavor.
Another fire-cracking entree is the Ahi Salad ($12.95). A skewer of fresh ahi or shrimp is garnished with tzatziki, house-made Papa’s Hot Sauce and Mediterranean salsa, all atop a bed of sweet romaine lettuce, baby mixed greens, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, feta cheese and kalamata olives tossed in a house dressing.
With all of these menu sparklers, let The Fat Greek light up your holiday season.
