Going Healthy In A ‘Big’ Way
See more articles from Big City Diner
Big City Diner has been satisfying appetites around Hawaii since it first opened in Kaimuki in 1998. Since then, the restaurant has expanded to five locations — located in Ward Entertainment Center, Waipio Shopping Center, Pearlridge East, Kailua and Windward Mall — and has become Hawaii’s go-to spot for comfort food and local-style favorites.
The diner is known and loved for its wide selection of breakfast, lunch, dinner, late-night and brunch menus, not to mention catering services. What plenty of visitors don’t know, however, is that the restaurant also serves a wide selection of healthy options.
Take Fire-Roasted Portobello Mushroom Salad, for example. For $12.49, guests receive sliced portobello mushrooms on a bed of organic greens, chopped romaine, diced Roma tomatoes and sweet red onions. This scrumptious salad is topped with huge croutons, imported Parmesan, red onion rings and fresh lemon — all drizzled with ancho-chile dressing.
