From the bustling streets of Times Square to the equally vivacious streets of Hong Kong, people walk around with smiles after enjoying the japanese barbecue cuisine at Gyu-Kaku. The restaurant has more than 700 locations worldwide, each rooted in the belief that some of the strongest bonds between friends are forged at the dinner table. Groups dine on a huge variety of Japanese dishes, from popular meat and veggie dishes such as Harami Skirt Steak, Kalbi Short Rib, and Bacon-wrapped Asparagus - to unique Japanese-American appetizers such as the Spicy Tuna Volcano, Wasabi Crunchy Shrimp, and Ahi Tuna Poke. The real excitement takes place around individual grills, however, where diners can barbecue their own slabs of filet mignon, ahi tuna, or chicken with chili mayo until they are ideally tender or encircled by on-duty firemen.
When Russell W. J. Siu was a child, his grandfather always asked him to help craft Chinese dishes for the family dinner. Russell's father inherited the cooking gene from his father, while Russell's mother taught her son the ins and outs of baking. With all of this culinary talent in the family, it's no surprise Russell started working in the food industry at 15, beginning the journey that led to Kaka'ako Kitchen. Nor is it surprising that Russell pays homage to those family dinners with his monthly Picnic on the Lanai, a family-style feast whose past options have included fried oysters with Cajun-spiced tartar sauce.
Made with locally sourced produce and meats, Russell's daily menu spotlights equally flavorful dishes. He assembles avocado, bacon, and crabmeat salad into his trademark A.B.C. sandwiches, tops grass-fed burgers with caramelized onion gravy, and smothers kalua pork sandwiches with pineapple salsa. Desserts made in-house can complement each main, as can your own wine, champagne, or beer, for which Kaka'ako Kitchen has no corkage fee or give-the-waiter-a-sip policy.
