California Dreamin’

November 14, 2013 | By Ali Resich


California Pizza Kitchen, known affectionately by loyal patrons as CPK, has been rocking the country with its West Coast-cool approach to casual dining since 1985.

A natural fit for Waikiki’s laid-back appeal, CPK’s mix of California creativity feels right at home on O’ahu’s South Shore. Amid the palm trees and shops that line Kalakaua Avenue, a visit to the restaurant offers a chance to enjoy all the classics you’ve come to love—from The Original BBQ Chicken Pizza to Chicken Tequila Fettuccine—in a dreamy tropical setting.

CPK’s Hawai’i menu also presents a regionally inspired Peking Duck Pizza, which is both exclusive to the islands and an absolute must. Oozing with delectable ingredients, the aromatic pie features soy-glazed shiitake mushrooms, roasted duck breast, mozzarella and a sweet touch of hoisin sauce. It’s completed with a zingy burst of red Fresno chilies, cucumber and scallions.

Additionally, The Original BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad and Caramelized Peach Salad are perfectly refreshing after a day in the sun.
