Located at Newtown Golf Driving Range in Aiea, Newtown Drive Inn, formerly known as Newtown Pancake House, hits a hole in one when it comes to enticing your palate with delectable dining options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Owner Jini Ryu most recently took over ownership of the establishment from Jung Park, who is making a move to the Mainland.

“We cater to a great deal of golfers and families from around the neighborhood,” Ryu says, “breakfast is our specialty.”

Early birds can feast upon Newtown Drive Inn favorites, including a vast array of omelettes, eggs, pancakes, waffles and more. Perhaps a full stomach means a greater chance of shooting a birdie.

“The Loco Moco Fried Rice ($6.95) is a top pick here, along with our Banana Pancakes (short stack $4.95, full stack $6.50),” she adds. “Our Kim Chee Fried Rice with two eggs ($7) is another local favorite, as are our loco mocos.”

In addition to breakfast, Newtown Drive Inn’s talented chefs cook up decadent spreads for the afternoon and evening crowds. The kal-bi, barbecue chicken, hamburger steak, meat jun, noodles and vegetable bi bim bap are just a few of the many dishes you should sample. You’ll definitely be coming back for more.

“Prices are very reasonable here, and we have a lot of families coming in to enjoy the food,” Park says.
