KAISEKI EX­PE­RI­ENCE

Kahala Life - - FINE PURSUITS -

Taiki Kawai brings lux­ury to the table at Akira, known for pre­sent­ing the el­e­gant Ja­panese mul­ti­course kaiseki ex­pe­ri­ence. Out of his small kitchen comes some of the most re­fined Ja­panese fare avail­able in Hawai‘i to date. Al­though dishes are avail­able à la carte, first­timers should start with the chef ’s sea­sonal kaiseki omakase, with a full range of boiled, sim­mered and grilled dishes, plus cour­ses of sashimi and ni­giri sushi. The teaser-sized por­tions as­so­ci­ated with kaiseki may not be for ev­ery­one, but each dish ar­rives like a per­fect jewel, with the sur­prise el­e­ment of the chef ’s choice menu adding to the joy of a meal here. At 1150 S. King St. Open 5 to 10:30 p.m. Mon­days to Satur­days. Call 376-0928.
