Did this: Highway Inn Kaka’ako preview

Highway Inn will be opening its second location in Kakaako, bringing its brand of Hawaiian food to town

Posted October 21, 2013 by Grant Shindo

Highway Inn, the popular Hawaiian food restaurant in Waipahu, will be opening up a second location in Kakaako. With a grand opening slated for November, Highway Inn is still pinning down a date while it makes final touches to the space at the corner of Ala Moana Boulevard and Coral Street. The preview event brought together an impressive array of festivities, including a traditional Hawaiian blessing, Chinese lion dance and live music.

We were treated to an equally impressive spread of such Highway Inn classics as laulau, kalua pig and haupia, but also got a glimpse into possible new menu items.
