A CLOSER LOOK AT THIS WEEK’S HOUSE SPECIAL: Oceanarium Cioppino ($28)
Take a dive into Waikiki at Pacific Beach Hotel, where a marine myriad awaits patrons in more ways than one. Diners at Oceanarium Restaurant are welcomed not only with a seafood-filled menu, but also with a breathtaking floor-to-ceiling indoor aquarium, giving a spectacular view of more than 400 sea species.
The restaurant is well known for offering the best deep-sea dishes at its grand buffet, but its a la carte menu is a fresh catch of its own. If you’re looking for a taste of the Pacific without the all-you-can-eat appetite, ease your crustacean cravings with Oceanarium Cioppino.
“It’s a seafood lover’s type of entree,” says executive chef Mariano Lalica. And seafood lovers can rejoice at the colossal flavors packed into the plate. The dish delivers a rich contrast of salty and sweet temptations, one savory bite after another. Come aboard the Oceanarium and dine in the aquatic abyss that awaits you.
