Since opening in 2010 (originally as a soft- serve yogurt cafe, hence its name), Yogurstory has evolved to become a neighborhood favorite for its gourmet breakfast and unique brunch items, as well as lunch and dinner specials with an Asian and local twist.
Conveniently located on Keeaumoku Street just a few blocks up from Ala Moana Center with plenty of free parking, the two-story eatery offers a spacious and inviting setting, along with a modern interior that has made it a hot spot for social gatherings.
On the menu are a variety of breakfast dishes (select breakfast items available all day), which present local and Asian flavors.
For example, there’s Hurricane Rice Bowl made with bacon kimchee fried rice, bulgogi, vegetables and egg, which is served with kochujang (Korean red chili paste); and the K-Town Chicken & Waffle, featuring Korean chicken and a Belgian waffle — the perfect combination of sweet and salty.
Even the classic eggs Benedict gets a local touch with options like Kalua Pig, Crab Cake (served on taro rolls), BAE (seared pork belly) and more.
For lunch, enjoy a sandwich like Turkey Pesto Panini or Club Croissant Sandwich, or indulge in tasty pasta options such as Chicken Alfredo, Shrimp Linguini and Rotisserie Chicken & Asparagus.
If customers are craving something soft and sweet,they will be pleasantly surprised to find a great selection of delectable waffles, pancakes and more.
One of the more famous treats of the bunch is Ube Pancakes ($13 breakfast and lunch, $15 dinner), which comes with a generous stack of five Okinawan sweet potato pancakes, topped with purple, ube coconut sauce. This dish is a must try, as it is unlike any other cake around town.
A waffle sure to make one feel special is the Red Carpet, a red velvet waffle paired with taro cream cheese and chocolate sauce.
Prime Rib Loco Moco ($18.50 breakfast and lunch, $22 dinner) featuring a hefty 8-ounce prime rib served with rice, gravy and two eggs any style is another showstopper.
So, whether you’re looking for something sweet or savory, and for sure indulgent and filling, Yogurstory has got you covered.
Customers can get their fill of Yogurstory’s tasty dishes seven days a week from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
