The Shops at Kukuiula welcomes its newest restaurant the Eating House 1849. Located above the Kukuiula Sales Center and The Dolphin, this new establishment is the brainchild of world famous chef Roy Yamaguchi (of Roy’s Hawaii in Poipu). Named after one of the first restaurants in Hawaii – founded by Peter Fernandez in the mid-1800s – the Eating House will showcase a fusion of Hawaiian dishes made with fresh, local ingredients. Cultural influences will include Japanese, Chinese, Portuguese, Korean, Puerto Rican and Filipino styles. All in all presenting a Plantation cuisine inspired by the island’s rich cultural past.
The menu include island style pu pus like Sizzling Rainbow Tetsuyaki Poke, Mama’s Pork & Tofu Lumpia, and Huli Huli Style Spicy Pork Belly. With fresh salads, savory noodle & rice dishes, gourmet burgers, sandwiches and decadent entrees, Roy has embraced an impressive range of culinary options.
“This Eating House 1849 is the first of what we are, and it is almost like the next generation of Roy’s,” Yamaguchi said. “It is making Roy’s better and this concept is what I envisioned many years ago.”
EatingHouse1849’s website goes on to say “Roy Yamaguchi is regarded as an international culinary visionary and the creator of Hawaiian fusion cuisine. His numerous accolades include the prestigious James Beard Award. Roy has also hosted six seasons of the television show “Hawaii Cooks with Roy Yamaguchi,” seen in more than 60 countries, and has published three cookbooks: Roy’s Fish and Seafood, Roy’s Feasts from Hawaii and Hawaii Cooks: Flavors from Roy’s Pacific Rim Kitchen.”
