[MONTHLY UPDATE] March 2024 Café and Restaurant Openings in Hawaii!

Betty’s Burger

Just across the street from the DFS Waikiki, Betty’s Burger is a new counter inside the Royal Hawaiian Dining Plaza.

Known for their mouthwatering smash burgers, Betty’s Burger is a popular local spot near the University of Hawaii at Manoa.  Like its original location, the Waikiki location serves up juicy patties cradled in soft, slightly sweet buns sourced from a local bakery.  For the perfect side, the French fries are crispy outside and fluffy inside.  And while the Waikiki counter is very casual, be sure to also check out the University location, which has a cool retro vibe!

Craving some cool reprieve from Hawaii’s tropical weather?  Look no further than Il Gelato’s newest location on Lewers Street at Waikiki Beach Walk.

Located in the Paina Lanai Food Court on the second floor of Building B at the Royal Hawaiian Center, Mini Monster Cafe is the next go-to spot for bubble teas.

Originally from California, Mini Monster Cafe offers a variety of fruit-based drinks like strawberry lemonade and passion fruit tea, as well as classics like honey milk tea and taro milk tea.  All come with the option to add boba for just 85 cents.  Most drinks are priced around $6, making this a great place to grab a refreshing beverage in Waikiki.

Good Chicken STIX ASIA

While this spot is not open just yet, Good Chicken will bring its brand of Korean-style fried chicken to Waikiki in STIX ASIA, the Asian Food Hall located on the lower level of the Waikiki Shopping Plaza.  Indulge in flavors like garlic chili and honey soy, and pair them with tasty sides such as tteokpokki rice cakes and fried mandoo dumplings.  Once you try the Korean style of fried chicken, with crispy skin revealing tender moist meat, lacquered with sweet or savory sauces, you may be compelled to try every flavor.

Nagasaki Champon Ringer Hut

Once located in the Ala Moana Center’s Makai Market food court, Japan-originated Nagasaki Champon Ringer Hut moved to a new spot in the shopping center on March 26.

Now neighbors with Brug Bakery, the popular Japanese eatery serves soulful noodle dishes topped with pork, seafood, and vegetables.  The thick, al dente noodle dishe scented with a light chicken and pork-based broth is a signature, but other dishes such as curry and deep fried cutlets are also available, making this a new hotspot for Japanese cuisine.
