In the middle of Ewa Beach and its ever-expanding community of new houses and businesses is Hawaii Prince Golf Course, a breath of fresh air with expansive landscape views of green grass and whimsical trees that line the premises.

With scenery such as this, it’s no wonder the golf course’s beloved restaurant, Bird of Paradise, is fashioned with open sliding doors all around.

Known best for its Sunday brunch buffet ($36, adults; $29, seniors 50 and older; $18, keiki ages 6-10), Bird of Paradise offers many favorites for the weekly feast, including Roasted Prime Rib of Beef, Snow Crab Legs and even some of its popular a la carte items, such as Clam Poke.

Clam Poke ($11 a la carte) features the ocean morsels in a secret shoyu-based sauce with white onions, ogo (type of seaweed) and green onions. This item is always made to order, ensuring optimum freshness.

The Sunday brunch buffet runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and includes two seating times: 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.


Another a la carte item that can be found on the Sunday buffet line is Mochiko Chicken ($13.50 a la carte). Juicy strips of chicken are battered and fried then tossed in a perfectly sweet and savory sauce, featuring ginger and teriyaki flavors. The chicken is topped with green onions and sesame seeds and is served with a tangy orange sauce for dipping.

Whether it’s during Sunday brunch or on any other given day, club members, golfers and the general public won’t want to miss an opportunity to try Mochiko Chicken and the other fare at Bird of Paradise.
