Kenny’s Restaurant in Kamehameha Shopping Center is known for its family values and friendly atmosphere. From the breakfast to dinner options, patrons leave satisfied, and the dessert is no different.

The dessert portions fit the bill when it comes to sharing and caring, and brings people closer together when eating from the same dish.

“Our customers appreciate that we give them their money’s worth,” says senior assistant manager Erlene Hutchinson. “And usually some people come in for lunch and they’ll just eat dessert.”

And it’s no wonder why. Manager’s Special ($9.55) puts out a great spread with fresh, warm waffles under a hearty topping of vanilla ice cream, strawberry topping and whipped cream.

“We’ve had it for years, and I guess people like the combination with the strawberries and the vanilla ice cream,” Hutchinson says of the bestselling dish, which is a perfect breakfast meal for the extreme sweet tooth enthusiast.

If the starchiness of waffles is too heavy for you, Banana Royale ($6.65) is the answer.

This “ali‘i-sized dessert” is fit for a king, and it’s big enough to share around the table with family and friends.

Hutchinson notes that if people don’t opt for Manager’s Special, Banana Royale, topped with hot fudge, whipped cream, nuts and a cherry, usually is their second choice.

Kenny’s Banana Split ($7.35) puts its own spin on this traditional dessert and adds one more scoop to the two-scoop time-honored classic. Those who choose to feast on this can expect the trio of flavors (vanilla, chocolate and strawberry) sprinkled with whipped cream, nuts and a cherry.

Two banana slices are hearty helpings, which adds to the substance and fills customers with happiness in each bite.

Dessert enthusiasts, your mouths must be watering for Kenny’s large-sized dessert plates, and that’s no surprise.

Whether you want an entire dish to yourself (or if you’d wish to share), there’s something on the menu for you!
