About Us

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 a 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 local bistro-inspired restaurant has quite the ambiance with 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.

What People Are Saying..

"INCREDIBLE. Honestly the best restaurant I‘ve eaten at on Oahu....and I’ve just about eaten my way around the island so that’s saying a lot. I got the pleasure of eating here before it opened and I was BLOWN AWAY. Right off the bat the setup, lighting, and music give off a cool, sexy vibe."- JESS "The Smoking Pig drink is a must-try signature drink. It was smoky, sweet, and topped with bacon. "- NATALIE R "Tried out this new place... will definitely be back! Ate appetizers and tried their drink specials, the Smoking Pig and Pig Pen! Yummers!!!" -KIM I "This place is outstanding.
