A CLOSER LOOK AT THIS WEEK’S HOUSE SPECIAL: SLOW ROASTED PRIME RIB ($28)
Locals love to eat and talk story, which means the search for a good place to do just that is always on. And while Hawaii is blessed with an abundance of dining options, the Dining Out team may have found the perfect spot for your next get-together — Yogurstory.
Conveniently located on Keeaumoku Street, the modern eatery is the ideal venue to catch up with friends and family, as it features comfortable seating, an inviting atmosphere and mouth-watering food. Diners can salivate over items like Fat Pig Fried Rice, Pulehu Kalbi & Eggs, Red Carpet Waffles and Hurricane Rice Bowl.
Everything found on Yogurstory’s menu is quite excellent, but there are a couple of standouts. Manager Dohee Kim explains that the restaurant’s top sellers are Ube Pancakes ($12.50 lunch, $15 dinner) and Prime Rib Loco Moco ($18.50 lunch, $22 dinner).
“Everybody goes, ‘Wow!’ when they see the Prime Rib Loco Moco,” notes Kim.
The wow factor is largely due to the eatery’s generous portions, as Yogur-story’s priority is to provide kamaaina with satisfying, delicious meals.
“We want to cater to locals,” says Kim. “We always make our portions generous.”
So whether it’s one’s first or 50th visit to Yogurstory, the eatery ensures customers will walk away with a full belly and a good time.
A heavenly side

Worth the wait
The 20-ounce USDA Choice Prime Rib is roasted for about four hours to ensure it’s tender and juicy.

Oh, so tasty
A medley of rosemary, garlic, Hawaiian sea salt and other secret seasonings is rubbed on the meat before it’s cooked to perfection.
