Every now and then, folks deserve to spoil themselves, and 100 Sails Restaurant & Bar is the perfect place to do just that.
Recently reopened and rebranded last November (previously Prince Court), 100 Sails offers breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as buffets for each.
From the minute visitors walk in, the restaurant’s name makes perfect sense, as its vibrant view of Ala Wai Boat Harbor is filled with literally hundreds of floating sail boats.
What’s more, chef de cuisine Joseph Almoguera and his team ensure delectable dishes at any time of day. With the restaurant’s menu currently under construction, Almoguera is proud to introduce new a la carte dishes.
For instance, visitors can start their day off with 100 Sail’s new Avocado Toast. Priced at $12, smashed avocado, sliced tomatoes, pea tendrils, mircoscallions and a poached egg sit on top toasted rye bread.
“I get the pea tendrils and mircoscallions from a farmer in Kakaako at MetroGrow Hawaii,” says Almoguera. “He grows all his stuff indoors (using) hydroponics and aeroponics so it’s real consistent and clean products.”
For lunch, try Huli Huli Chicken ($27). “We marinate it in a Ziploc bag and sous vide it for a couple hours,” he says. The chicken is marinated in shoyu, garlic, sugar, sake and more. “And the result is something super tender and moist, so it’s gonna be the best chicken to try once guests cut into it,” Almoguera adds. This succulent take on huli huli chicken is served with rice and seasonal vegetables.
The latest addition to the dinner menu is the Pasta Special of the Day ($32). “This is orzo pasta served with braised short rib, made kalbi-style,” explains Almoguera. “I cooked up the orzo and put onions, peppers, garlic and some really tiny shimeji mushrooms, and we cooked it like fried rice with some shoyu and oyster sauce.”
Almoguera and his team of cooks are constantly at work creating new dishes. “We are always eating and trying new things to put dishes together,” he says.
At 100 Sails, guests also can enjoy daily happy hour from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. and again from 8 to 10 p.m., where certain foods from the Small Bites’ menu are 50 percent off. It’s never been easier to sail off into the sunset with a dazzling meal you won’t soon forget.
