Chef Masaharu Morimoto is one of my favorite Iron Chefs. When we were in Philadelphia several years ago, I was excited to make reservations at his namesake restaurant there. I remember the cool lighting in the booths that changed colors. I was even more excited when I first found out that he was opening a restaurant in Waikiki.
Goofy Cafe & Dine is located just in front of Hilton’s Grand Waikikian Suites, in a two-story wooden structure, just off of Ala Moana Boulevard. The small cafe is located in the second-story space that the Fat Greek once occupied. Goofy Cafe & Dine is definitely an upgrade from the Fat Greek, in terms of food, ambiance, and atmosphere.
