Tucked away on the first floor of the Aqua Oasis Hotel on Lewers Street in Waikiki, you will find one of the tastiest and most affordable tomahawk steaks in Hawaii at Aloha Steak House. I had the pleasure to share this with my friend Maki Konikson — and just to clarify her name is Maki and not Maki-Ko.
Many times she is referred to as Hawaii Maki-San, Ambassador of Hawaii to Japan, bridging the gap to the Japanese whether they are tourists or locals, to all of the best that Hawaii has to offer. Not only is she famous, but she is also a local business owner here in Hawaii. She knows firsthand how our economy and restaurants are suffering without the tourist traffic.We sat down to talk story about what makes this restaurant one of her go to places and learned a lot about the Zetton restaurant group from Makoto “Mild” Hasegawa, director of operations.
