Hawaii’s Kitchen On the Road: Rocky Teppanyaki at Hilton Hawaiian Village

Hawaiis Kitchen

Hawaii’s Kitchen went on the road to Rocky Japanese Steak Teppan Restaurant aka “Rocky Teppanyaki” at Hilton Hawaiian Village trying out all the new  dishes and drinks on the menu for lunch, dinner, and happy hour.

This has been a popular Teppanyaki spot for locals and visitors alike for years at Hilton Hawaiian Village and Rocky’s is adding some new dishes and crowd pleasing cocktails and desserts that Living808’s Tannya Joaquin had to check out.

The new name and menu comes with local specials with a Rocky twist, such as Loco Moco Ramen with Sun Noodles and a new addition, Wagyu Steak.

Why the name change to Rocky’s? 

Corporate Manager Shinji Ohfuji says you can still have all of your favorite teppanyaki dishes that started the  world-famous trend as Benihana, but named in honor of founder Rocky Teppanyaki, he adds, “We are also able to offer a wider variety of dishes that cater to local tastes – like poke bowls using fresh Hawaiian fish, loco moco, ramen loco moco, and other new items, as well as special promotions like Happy Hour with 50% off all drinks – that we werenʻt able to do before, so itʻs really an exciting time for us!”

Head Chef Thomas Toth cooked up some of the new dishes including Wagyu Steak Teppanyaki and gave Tannya a chance to try out her skills as a Teppanyaki Chef.
