Pa’akai Launches New Menu

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!! “

The display titled:Great Hawaiian Surf Families is curated by the California Surf Museum. It is a celebration of Ohana and what it means to the Hawaiian culture.

“Ohana is a primary idea in Hawaiian culture” says Jim Kempton, the President of the California Surf Museum, and curator of the exhibit. “The families presented in this exhibit have passed the traditions of their culture down to the descendants – and their surfing prowess as well. They are perhaps the greatest collection of multi-generational surf families in the history of the sport.”
