The holiday season was made for caving in to indulgences — at least that’s how I justify it.
To make sure everyone is able to enjoy the seasonal feasting, Kenny’s Restaurant is offering a number of specials available through Jan. 4.
“We (want to) give back to the community,” says owner John Fujieki.
To start, all items on the restaurant’s catering menu are 15 percent off. If your order totals $450 or more, Kenny’s also is offering an 18-pound Prime Rib for $325 (normally $399.99).
The restaurant’s most popular catering item is the Korean Chicken ($28, small; $56, medium; $82.35, large, $106.40, extra large). Kenny’s uses a special sauce to marinate the chicken before it is deep fried to perfection.
Another favorite is Chow Mein Noodles ($17.25, small; $34.45, medium; $50.65, large; $65.45, extra large), featuring a lively variety of vegetables mixed in with the noodles to provide infusions of color and flavor.
Another protein option Fujieki recommends is Terikyaki Meat ($37.20, small; $74.40, medium; $109.40, large; $141.40, extra large). Also featuring a special sauce, the meat is marinated before being prepared for customers.
Something new the restaurant recently rolled out is sushi made in-house.
If you’re stopping in for this Japanese-style fare, choose from an a la carte list of options, set bentos or even create your own combination with any number of sushi. Pair the Ahi Futomaki Roll ($3.55 each) with Inari ($1.15 each), or a California Futomaki Roll ($4.25 each) and Tuna Cucumber Futomaki Roll ($2.95 each).
The menu is meant to provide personalization and variation for whatever you’re in the mood for.
As if the other specials weren’t enough, there is one more deal Kenny’s is offering. Customers who bring in a receipt from any of the restaurant’s fellow Kamehameha Shopping Center businesses receive 10 percent off any plate lunch or sandwich. Kenny’s also is accepting bank deposit slips from any bank located within the shopping center. Each receipt or deposit slip is good for four people.
“We’re trying to do all these things and give all these different discounts so that we can help the community,” Fujieki says.
