Alan Wong's Amasia Opens at Maui's Grand Wailea

Maui has a new restaurant: Alan Wong’s Amasia is collaboration between Chef Alan Wong, a founder of Hawaii Regional Cuisine and Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort.

Alan Wong’s Amasia is set in Grand Wailea’s Japanese garden surrounded by 800 tons of rock from Mt. Fuji and a pond filled with koi and turtles. Designed to evoke a teahouse in Kyoto, the original structure was built in Japan and brought to Maui. Following a $3 million renovation, the restaurant has private tatami rooms, a formal dining area, a cocktail lounge, a sushi bar and a robata for grilled bites. The bar has private label wines and sakes and creative cocktails inspired by its global menu.

Menu items include (but, of course, are not limited to):

Dungeness crab chawanmushi, soybeans, shishito peppers

 

Crispy “garlic shrimp,” citrus, sweet paprika

 

Ahi chili, refried taro, “local” chips

 

Chicken meatballs, coconut-ginger-lemongrass broth, pimenton oil

 

Shoyu duck bun bao, hoisin Sriracha

 

Kurobuta char siu baby back ribs, crispy garlic, lime

 

Maui Cattle Company “cowboy” ribeye steak, Hamakua mushrooms, Hawaiian chili pepper butter

 

Alan Wong’s Amasia is located at the Grand Wailea resort, 3850 Wailea Alanui Drive, Wailea. The full menu is available at www.wailearesortdining.com, and reservations may be booked at 808-891-3954.
