Pa’akai Launches New Menu

Posted on Sat, 2019/01/05 - 10:06pm by Jessica Gellert

If you’re looking for a high caliber menu and hand-crafted beverages paired with an epic sunset, Pa’akai is the place for you.

Turtle Bay Resort’s Pa’akai restaurant launched a brand new menu that features local fresh seafood, mouthwatering steaks, and a raw bar.

Simple is sometimes the best way to go, and that was Pa’akai Executive Chef Joe Rose’s approach to the brand new menu.

“We simplified our offerings by focusing on high-quality meats, fish and produce. It’s still a higher end experience but it’s also fun,” explained Rose.

Everything on the menu is new. From cocktails to appetizers, main courses and sides.

“My favorite dishes would be the raw bar, tuna tartar, onion soup and of course the charbroiled oyster for starters,” said Rose. “Then the Prime New York Strip or Tomahawk for the steak, gratin potatoes and Brussel Sprout for sides and the whole fish is amazing!! “

Of course, you have to top off a delicious meal with dessert. Pa’akai now has chocolate cake, Creme Brulee, seasonal cheesecakes and even more sweet treats.

Pa’akai,” the Hawaiian word for salt, was used as gifts in ancient Hawaiian culture. The team at Pa’akai hopes to gift diners with a savory experience they will delight in and remember.
