Amazing New Dishes Coming to Hyatt Regency Waikīkī’s SHOR restaurant

Everything from crispy oysters to crab rolls to Washugyu yakitori will be added to the menu in January.

In mid-January, Hyatt Regency Waikīkī Beach Resort and Spa will introduce several new menu items at SHOR restaurant, which offers spacious, open-air dining with stunning Waikīkī Beach views.

The new dishes were created by Chef de Cuisine Joe Almoguera, who arrived at the resort in March 2022. SHOR has made it a priority to incorporate fresh, locally sourced vegetables, fruits, seafood and meats whenever possible. Here’s a look:

—SHOR at Hyatt Regency Waikīkī Beach Resort and Spa, 2424 Kalākaua Ave., (808) 923-1234


Ahi Poke Shooters


Silken fresh ‘ahi meets a smattering of onions and limu in a chilled shot glass—nothing says classic Hawai‘i in such a luxe way.

Kelaguen and Chips


In a nod to his Guam roots, Chef Joe pairs raw Kaua‘i shrimp cured in fresh citrus juices, a la ceviche, with red rice chips in a refreshing, multi-textured appetizer.

Washugyu Yakitori


Tender, grilled morsels of Washugyu beef, a cross between Tajima Wagyu and Black Angus, are lightly brushed with a savory-sweet glaze for bite after mouthwatering bite.

Crispy Oysters

Crispy Oysters

Fresh oysters breaded and deep-fried with a spicy calamansi aioli and kabayaki sauce deliver an umami-filled crunch.

North Shore Style Garlic Shrimp Flatbread and Hamakua Ali’i Mushroom Flatbread


The earthy Hamakua mushroom flatbread, a menu favorite, is joined by new favorite garlic shrimp and arugula on fluffy, house-made flatbread.

Crab Rolls


Forget lobster. These pillowy rolls hold fresh crab seasoned with Old Bay, bacon bits and microgreens. The ultimate in handheld luxe.

Seared Diver Scallops


Succulent diver scallops, harvested by hand by actual divers, are sautéed to perfection, then topped with corn purée and popped sorghum.

Island Harvest Terrarium


A refreshing salad that screams local: Waipoli greens, avocado, cherry tomatoes and cucumbers in a calamansi vinaigrette.



The perfect end to a meal, with a hint of coffee in a Weck jar.

Hurricane Tots

Hurricane Tots

Tater tots topped with arare, furikake, sweet soy reduction, spicy mayo and scallions are your new favorite pau hana pūpū.

Lobster Fried Rice


The ultimate in decadence, generous pieces of lobster elevate a local favorite that’s surprisingly light.

Garlic ‘Ahi


Fried ‘ahi belly—many Hawai‘i locals’ favorite part of the tuna—is topped in a sweet soy garlic sauce with lomilomi tomatoes, fried garlic and scallions. Crunchy, juicy and satisfying.
