IN­SPI­RA­TION MEETS TRA­DI­TION WHERE WAIKĪKĪ MEETS THE SKY AT HONOLULU’S HOTTEST ROOFTOP VENUE, BUHO COCINA Y CANTINA.

FLUX Hawaii - - PROMOTIONAL -

Even though Buho Cocina y Cantina re­cently cel­e­brated its one year an­niver­sary, ec­cen­tric food­ies and vis­i­tors alike con­tinue to find their ways to the rooftop restau­rant for both the first time and for re­peat vis­its. Mex­ico-na­tive chef Ar­turo Silva and his team con­tinue to search the Hawai­ian Is­lands and be­yond for note­wor­thy in­gre­di­ents to add to their al­ready eclec­tic menu. For years, it has been said that there are no good Mex­i­can eater­ies in Hawai‘i. That all changed a year ago, when chef Silva and his brigade brought their take on tra­di­tional Mex­i­can fare with an el­e­vated twist. Buho’s fo­cus on us­ing the fresh­est and high­est qual­ity lo­cal in­gre­di­ents is ev­i­dent in each and ev­ery bite of its in­ven­tive menu. The fo­cus of us­ing lo­cal in­gre­di­ents is in homage to Silva’s culi­nary train­ing from none other than his mother. At an early age, the young chef found him­self side

by side with his mom in their home kitchen, cook­ing fam­ily meals for his brothers and sis­ter. Since leav­ing his home­town in Mex­ico, jour­ney­ing through var­i­ous kitchens across the United States, chef Silva has al­ways dreamed of run­ning a Mex­i­can restau­rant, where he could best ex­press his culi­nary dreams.

Aside from the food, the am­biance at Buho is un­like any other that one may find on the streets of Waikīkī. High above the hus­tle and bus­tle is Buho’s trendy 12,300-square-foot open-air rooftop cantina, equipped with fire pits and a 60-foot long bar, where Buho’s bar­tenders serve up some of the best mar­gar­i­tas around, along­side more than 60 pre­mium sip­ping tequi­las and an abun­dant se­lec­tion of Mex­i­can, lo­cal, and craft beers.

Buho’s lo­ca­tion, high above the Waikīkī crowd, lends the per­fect venue for an ar­ray of dif­fer­ent oc­ca­sions, from af­ter­noon cock­tails to a ro­man­tic din­ner. On Fri­day evenings, en­joy a breath­tak­ing view of the fire­works right from your seat, or en­joy the late night tunes of live mu­si­cians play­ing nightly from 9 p.m. to mid­night. If you’re not a late night per­son, stop in on the 5th of ev­ery month for Cinco de Buho, a fes­tive spin on the yearly cel­e­bra­tion Cinco de Mayo. And no Mex­i­can cantina would be com­plete with­out Taco Tues­day, where Buho carves up de­li­cious tacos from their trompo carv­ing sta­tion.
