‘Coconut T’ at Wahoos

Wahoo restaurant has a bar with a vast selection of drinks, beers and wines. I ordered the Coconut T vodka, passion fruit, pineapple coconut syrup blended and laced with grenadine.

General manager Tami Takenaka explained that when she first started working there they had a brain storming day where the staff got to create fun new drinks, and the Coconut T was her creation. Thus, the T for Tami: “I like fruity drinks, and figured I’m not alone.”

The drink is usually served in a coconut when available and is a delicious, refreshing, blended mix.

I was shown the Nui Loa and Menahune cocktail glasses, which are both huge. You can order any tropical drink in either one with Nui Loa being the “very big” one, and the Menahune, the “smaller big” one. Nui Loa is also called Wahoo’s colossal tropical liberation.

I can see why, since I am sure that after you finish one of those drinks, if you can manage, you are sure to feel liberated from anything. In my humble opinion, you should share or at least have a designated driver if you go for one.

The restaurant also has an extensive wine menu. Owner John Borales said they host a couple of wine events a year where they sample and choose wines for the restaurant. It’s usually his personal picks and choices with different kinds of wines from California and Argentina.

Happy hour is daily from 4 to 6 p.m.
