Relish a Japanese Meal at Espacio's Mugen

Relish a Japanese Meal at Espacio's Mugen

March 2, 2020 by Mari Taketa

The hint’s in the name, at Mugen, Japanese for “infinity,” dishes match the stratospheric vision of Waikiki’s new ultraluxe boutique hotel, Espacio, The Jewel of Waikiki. Mochi blinis with osetra caviar, Kualoa oysters atop maitake duxelles, sprinkled with yuzu butter crumbs and crowned with golden Hokkaido uni are a few of the top-notch dishes. New-to-Hawai' toque Jason Yamaguchi, the mastermind behind the menu, sources ingredients from local fields, seas and points across the globe. The restaurant has a mix of a la carte choices, but your best route to culinary bliss is picking from the tasting menus, which change daily. After an evening of prix fixe dining in the lap of luxury, opulence follows you through the property, where every 2,250-square-foot suite comes with Italian marble bathrooms, a private Jacuzzi on your ocean-view lanai, and the opportunity to whip a Mercedes GLC SUV or a BMW X3 around town. An evening fit for royalty… just as it should be. 2452 Kalakaua Ave., Waikiki, 377.2247.
