Want to hear a story about a restaurant in Honolulu that serves hungry kamaaina hearty, mouth-watering meals that satisfy their most intense food cravings? Well, listen to the tale of YogurStory, nestled on the corner of Keeaumoku Street.
Famous for its Ube Pancakes, waffles, Hawaiian Loco Moco, Hurricane Rice Bowl, and many other appetizing eats, YogurStory started off in 2010 as a soft serve yogurt cafe. However, the popularity of its food items exploded and the yogurt machines were taken out.
The restaurant now is a full-service two-story eatery and bar, which serves up breakfast, lunch and dinner daily in a comfortable environment.
Manager Dohee Kim explains YogurStory offers delectable local cuisine with a touch of Asian inspiration.
“We like to cater to our local customers and try to create some new menus every season,” notes Kim.
She says that YogurStory recently started offering an afternoon dinner menu, although it serves most of its breakfast items throughout the day until closing time. The establishment also offers a house wine and full liquor menu.
Many exciting new dishes recently have been launched on the restaurant’s menu, Kim shares.
One of them is Avocado Tomato Eggs Benedict ($15 lunch, $16.95 dinner). This pleasant platter includes ingredients such as freshly sliced tomatoes and avocado, mozzarella cheese, eggs and hollandaise on an English muffin. Eggs Benedict meals at YogurStory are served with a choice of rice, potato or hash browns.
Another item guests can find is Aloha French Toast ($15 lunch, $15.95 dinner).
Kim explains the French toast is made of brioche, which she buys daily, and is served with toppings that include mixed berries and bananas.
“We’re doing really well on our French toast. It’s really yummy,” notes Kim. She also boasts of the fresh brioche, “I pick it up every day. It’s soft and we’re really happy to find that bread.”
A crowd-pleasing item that can’t be missed is Prime Rib Pizza ($18, only available for lunch). The scrumptious pie features melted cheese, succulent prime rib and Chinese parsley on a crispy crust.
So, to start another chapter in the history of your food fix, stop in at YogurStory to find your newest favorite flavors.
