Let Us Introduce Ourselves
The Surfing Pig concept is an expanded full-service restaurant of Kono’s. Kono’s began in Haleiwa in the North Shore in 2002. With its fun, surf-inspired atmosphere, and cravingly delicious dishes, Kono’s has become an island favorite. Kono’s has been awarded #1 Plate lunch, breakfast, restaurant under $29 and cheap eats on Oahu by Hawaii Magazine. 2017 Kono’s received prestigious dining award, ‘Ilima Award for People’s Choice “Best Casual Restaurant”.
With the success and relationships created at Kono’s, grew the urge to start something new… The Surfing Pig
The Surfing Pig is nestled in the heart of Kaimuki, on Waialae between 12th ave and Kokohead ave. Our concept is to bring back a Old School vibe in Kaimuki, which really is the Mecca of dining on Oahu. The Surfing Pig offers an elevated menu of Kono’s specialized 12hr slow-roasted pork, with variations of new creations of slow-roasted meats, small plates, and savory entrees. The new restaurant serves hand-crafted cocktails at the full serviced bar.
The gastropub inspired restaurant will have quite the ambiance with their communal dining in the bar & tables up in their loft. It is a gathering hotspot for the emerging local foodies, families, and visitors of Kaimuki with an urban twist.“Both restaurants exemplify quality food, cocktails, and extra aloha service”, says the owner, Stan Glander who has big plans for the future of both The Surfing Pig and Kono’s Restaurants.
