By Star-Advertiser Staff


Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s Momosan Waikiki has reopened and is offering dine-in and takeout for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The ramen and sake bar has a new breakfast menu. It includes Wa Cho-Shoku, Spam Musubi, Onigiri and Tokyo Chicken.

Popular ramen and sushi items such as the Spicy Tuna Roll are back.

Sit-down breakfast is 6 a.m. to 10 a.m., lunch is 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and dinner is 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. (no reservations).

Takeout and delivery is available; call 922-0011. Zuppler and GrubHub are available for contactless payment and delivery. The restaurant is in the Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach at 2490 Kalakaua Ave.


Taqueria el Ranchero is slated to bring its Mexican food to Ka Makana Ali‘i in 2021, according to the Kapolei center, which announced a lease agreement with the restaurant.
Owner Hector Garcia Gomez is expanding with a second location after starting in Wahiawa in 2015.

“I started the restaurant because I needed food from back home. Everything on the menu is street food that I like to eat,” said Garcia, who grew up on a ranch in Mexico.

Weekend specials like posole, menudo and chile relleno will augment the regular menu, featuring tacos, burritos, quesadillas and nachos. Plans are to be open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Visit
