Morimoto adds brunch+market
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.
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
