Hawaiian cuisine normally isn’t the first thing you’d think trying while in Japan, but if you’re ever in Enoshima, don’t pass up on the chance to visit Moke’s Hawaii. This restaurant doesn’t just serve delicious pancakes and food bowls; it was also the best restaurant award winner from through a contest by Hawaiian daily Honolulu Star Advertiser.
Lilikoi Pancake (¥1,382) uses meringue to make a fluffy dough, which matches perfectly with the sour passion fruit sauce.
Make sure to try the Lilikoi Pancake, which the pancake’s dough is made using the same recipe from the branch in Hawaii, the Parfait and Shake, and the Angel Lemonade.
However, Moke’s Hawaii also has items that are only available in the Enoshima branch.
The tomato and the green shiso (a Japanese herb) make up the Tricolor Shirasu Bowl (¥1,382). The black rice and the sesame oil add a good kick to the flavor.
Try the Tricolor Shirasu Bowl, a mix of shirasu, tomato, and shiso (¥1,382); the Garden Shirasu Pancake (¥1,490), a healthy dish with lettuce and paprika garnished on the plate along with soy sauce, shirasu, and dried mullet roe, and the Enoshima-limited Pancake It’s a girl (¥1,944).
Enoshima-limited Pancake It’s a girl
There are two colors for the angel wings, blue and pink.
One of the drinks you simply have to try here is the Angel Lemonade. The homemade concoction uses additive-free lemon and honey and comes with cute angel wings on the cup. The lemonade comes in a variety of options: the Angel Lemonade and Angel Lemonade Soda (S: ¥518, L: ¥680), Hot Lemonade (S: ¥518), and Angel Lemonade Sour (S:¥680, L: ¥820).
Do check out the Parfait Shake Pinky Pink Pink (¥950) as well. The awe-inspiring interiors and the dishes are worth making the trip over.
Parfait Shake Pinky Pink Pink has a colorful marshmallow on top of the ice cream.
You may have a difficult time choosing where to sit from a series of seats available.
The restaurant is in front of the Shonan Ocean. The wings painted on the wall stand out.
