Jewelry served up along with edibles during Morimoto Waikiki's monthly brunch+market food+shopping event.

Morimoto Waikiki has introduced brunch+market, taking place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every last Sunday of the month. The event combines a Sunday brunch experience with pop-up shopping featuring local fashion, jewelry and accessory vendors. For multitaskers, it’s one way to fuel up while getting some early holiday shopping done.

During the inaugural event last month, I was able to browse between the time of placing my order and waiting for it to arrive. When our food was ready, the waiter alerted us so I was able to put an item I wanted to purchase on hold, and pay for it after I finished eating. No time wasted.

Among dishes served up during last month's inaugural event was salmon gravlox benedict.

The menu changes each month for those interested in trying something new. This month's a la carte menu on Sept. 25 will feature the following:

Biscuits and foie gras gravy, $16
Pork chop with tobanjan aioli, $20
Smoked marlin foccacia with avocado and tomato, $16
French toast with Asian pear, pecans and kuromitsu, v15
Shrimp on rice croquette with miso aioli, $18
Housemade spam and eggs, $15
Black bean sliders, $15
Chocolate chip pancakes, $12
Bloody Marys, mimosas and screwdrivers, $5

Steve and Elena Martin of Posh Hawaii will return with their hats, jewelry, clothing and accessories.

Market participants are:
POSH Hawaii
Beach Wahine
Waikiki Love
Ocean Secrets
Hooululani

Perfectly Posh

In addition, September is Hunger Action Month and the restaurant is accepting canned foods in support of the Hawaii Food Bank drive.
