If you’re on the hunt for onolicious local food prepared with a fun twist, look no further than Mahina & Sun’s. Presenting a menu made with quality ingredients that are locally sourced, the restaurant, located in Waikiki’s Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club, satisfies appetites of all kinds with everything from seafood and meat dishes to those that veggie-lovers and vegans will enjoy.

Right now, hungry guests can order takeout and curbside service, as well as room service for those staying at the hotel. There is even a special room rate that offers free parking and no amenity fee. (Call the hotel for more information.) The best part of it all is a $20 Mahina & Sun’s dining credit.

The aforementioned menu is part of Mahina & Sun’s Take Out, Room Service, Curbside – To Go food program and includes select items from the brunch and dinner offerings. For room service and hotel patrons, spirited beverages can also be ordered to-go.

The brunch options — available between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. — are the Morning Burrito, Local Breakfast (formerly known as the Surfjack Breakfast), Mahina Bowl (and Spicy Poke bowl), and Pork Adobo Fried Rice.

The Pork Adobo Fried Rice ($17) is a favorite among customers and is served with slices of avocado, pickled mushrooms, sesame kale and kimchee, all topped with eggs prepared to your liking — however, over-easy is the recommended way to go.

The Local Breakfast ($17) is a simple and satisfying compilation that comes with all the classic brekky favorites. It comes with two eggs cooked how you like it; a choice of Portuguese sausage, bacon or roasted mushrooms; hapa rice or toast; tossed or macaroni salad; and kimchi for an added kick.

Dive in to the dinner menu, available from 5:30 to 9 p.m., for selections of Ahi Tombo, Rigatoni, Two Ladies Farm Pork Chops, Avocado Tacos, Kale Salad, Grilled Opah Sandwich, Local Beef Sliders, Margherita Pizza, Naked Pig Pizza and sides like Bowl of Fries, snacks and Uncle’s Ice Cream Sandwiches.

Customers will find fine satisfaction in the Ahi Tombo ($30), a colorful and tasty creation crowning seared ahi atop grains and veggies. Pizza is always fun for the whole gang, and Mahina & Sun’s pies are sure to please. The Naked Pig features a thin crust pizza with fromage blanc sauce, uncured bacon and sweet onion. Arugula and Parmigiano, Small Kine Farm mushrooms and green olives can be tacked on as well for a small additional fee.

No matter what you’re craving, give Mahina & Sun’s a call and spruce up your meals with a little tasty sunshine found in each and every dish at the creative restaurant — which is now offering a 15 percent discount to all kamaaina.
