“I’m going to Hawaii, where should I eat?” Such a question, sooner or later, brings up the name Alan Wong. The elder statesman of Hawaiian cuisine, Wong’s eponymous restaurant, which opened in 1995, is one of the most consistently highly rated. And no wonder. Wong’s dishes skirt the fine line between commerciality and artistry by retaining the rustic flavors of Hawaiian melting pot cuisine but presenting it in elegant terms. Line cooks and sous chefs wear hats engraved with “The Wong Way,” while fish and wagyu beef are plated with delicate precision. The daily changing menu features not only Wong’s indelible creations, but also those of his protégés, including Chef de Cuisine Wade Ueoka and Pastry Chef Michelle Karr-Ueoka (both of whom have traveled extensively with Wong and are 2012 Rising Stars). With a deep bench of budding talent and an all-encompassing approach to Hawaiian cuisine, Alan Wong’s is bound to remain on the “you should eat here” list for a while.
