This weekend May and I celebrated my birthday with our neighbors, Monica Toguchi and her Highway Inn ʻohana. They presented me with warm birthday wishes, and a delicious bread pudding with haupia drizzle birthday dessert! Mahalo, Monica and team, for making my birthday so special!
Highway Inn is one of my favorite spots in the neighborhood. After her grandparents opened the first Highway Inn located in Waipahu in 1947, the restaurant joined the Kakaʻako community in 2014. The restuarant is known for serving up classic Hawaiian food, as well as dishes with a twist. However, what I love most about Highway Inn besides its food is the dedication Monica and her team have for the community and to preserving a legacy that honors its local roots. When you walk into Highway Inn, you know you are in for a treat, and immediately feel the friendliness exuded by staff. The restaurant always reminds me to slow down, take time to talk story, and enjoy life.
