Try “Amasia” For a Taste of Global Food


Try "Amasia" for a Taste of Global Food

Try “Amasia” for a taste of global food and cultural exchange. Alan Wongs new restaurant, Amesia is like “East meets west in Hawaii” says The Maui News. ¬†Award winning Chef Alan Wong has a new restaurant featuring a stunning selection of small plates with satisfying global flavors.

The opening this spring at Grand Wailea is a great achievement for Mr. Wong and we wish him much success.

Try Amasia for a Taste of Global Food

He’s an amazing chef. There’s no doubt about it. Alan Wong is a James Beard Award winner, one of only two chefs in Hawaii to get the coveted prize, an Oscar of the food industry. And he just cooked a meal for President Barack Obama and his family last week on Oahu.

In fact, his acclaimed restaurant on King Street in Oahu, the original Alan Wong’s, is an Obama favorite when he visits that island. Wong has accolades for his Pineapple Room at the Ala Moana Center on Oahu, too.

This spring, he’ll bring his talents to the Grand Wailea, a Waldorf Astoria Resort, where he’ll debut Alan Wong’s Amasia in the former Kincha location.

Wong will wow taste buds with flavors from Peru, Singapore, Spain and other global destinations. Diners will share with small plates, allowing them to get a global marketplace of cuisine, where East meets West in Hawaii.

“Food brings people together, at the kitchen table or in the plantation fields in many destinations,” says Wong. I want to create an elevated local interpretation of this cultural exchange.”

Guests will experience a sense of place as they see, hear, smell and taste the exotic flavors from around the world. Of course, as any great chef should, Wong will also feature the best of Maui’s bounty from the land and sea. After all, he is a founding member of the Hawaii Regional Cuisine movement and he remains an ambassador for this style of cooking.

Alan Wong’s Amasia will feature a sushi bar and a robata, which is a charcoal grill for meat and seafood delicacies. The Amasia bar will pour private-label liquor and creative cocktails that will be inspired by its transcontinental menu.

The word, “Amasia,” according to Wikipedia, “is a possible future supercontinent that could be formed by the merger of Asia and North America.” So the global marketplace of cuisine fits the name to a T.

I’ve heard only good things about both the chef, Alan Wong and his other restaurants. If your travels take you to the Waldorf Astoria Resort in Hawaii where Wong’s Amasia will be opening soon, I hope you have the opportunity to try¬†Amasia for a taste of global food.
