Please join us for our New Member Induction and Meeting at Buho Cocina y Cantina in Waikiki!

Get to know our new LDEI Hawaii members, socialize, and taste highlights from Buho’s menu. Chef Arturo Silva will speak with us about his inspiration for this new restaurant with a unique setting.

Buho is one of Honolulu’s newest restaurants atop of Waikiki on the 5th floor rooftop of The Waikiki Shopping Center. Using locally sourced produce and proteins, Buho combines flavors for a more updated Mexican cuisine which owner Hide Sakurai is calling “Modern Mexican”. Some of what Buho offers may seem familiar, other dishes are definitely updated. We will have an opportunity to taste a mix of both.
