As for the banquet and catering menus, select from a great assortment of dishes, including American, Korean and local-style favorites. There are a variety of options for cold entrees, such as Shrimp Cocktail and Oriental Chicken Salad; and hot entrees like Fresh Catch of the Day, Sauteed Seafood Medley and Teriyaki Chicken. You also can build your own Korean Buffet menu or choose a Hawaiian Reception menu.

“Our specialty is design, decor and great food,” expresses Ingrid “Pohai” Carlos, the hotel’s assistant food and beverage manager, who also handles events.

“By bringing our customers’ vision to life, we create memories that will be remembered for a lifetime.”

While at Waikiki Resort Hotel, stop by Seoul Jung for its authentic Korean cuisine, including japchae, mandoo, kalbi (or galbi), yakiniku, bibimbap, seafood pancake, cold buckwheat noodle soup, soft tofu soup and so much more.

Among the house favorites is Sundubu Jjigae ($16.95), featuring a savory broth made with gochujang, or Korean chili paste (it’s not too spicy, but you can always request to adjust the spiciness to your liking), blended with seasonal vegetables and seafood, such as clams, shrimp and squid, and silky, extra-soft tofu.

Consider Waikiki Resort Hotel for your next shindig, and allow the staff to help you create an event that you’ll never forget.
