Comfortably nestled poolside at the resort, Kani Ka Pila Grille jumps to life as Hawaii’s most legendary musicians perform. New local talent and island artists of international renown fill the weekly schedule of nightly performances, which take place from 6 to 9 p.m.

It consists of crispy fried shrimp that is tossed in a creamy, spicy tequila sauce that the eatery named Boom Boom sauce. This is a wonderful dish to indulge in by yourself or to share as a pupu with others.
