More than just a burger joint. Burgers on Bishop is a cute little, sort of hole in the wall located in downtown Honolulu. Tucked away on the ground floor of the Topa Tower right across the street from the Aloha Tower Marketplace.
I first heard about them on our local news, Hawaii News Now. They have a segment called Cheap Eats where they showcase local restaurants with amazing food at great prices. Click here to watch the Burgers on Bishop clip, please have a napkin with you and be prepared to wipe the drool off your face. LOL
Although Burgers on Bishop is known for their tasty burgers, my friend Lola and I decided to try a few different things on the menu, as prior to being known as Burgers on Bishop, they used to be called Burgers and Things. You can bet I’ll be back to try them burgers that are grilled and braised in a house made au jus. Burgers prepared French Style?? Yes please!
Lola and I weren’t wanting anything too heavy to eat, so we shared a few lighter options.
Pork Belly with Kabocha Puree
Garlic Truffle Fries
Lola and I went for “Pau Hana Friday”, which happens every Friday from 4pm-8pm. You BYOB, order from their regular menu as well as chef specials they offer that night. That Ahi Tataki in the first pic was one of their specials when we went. Seared to perfection garnished with a little lettuce, and onions, accompanied with a special soy sauce that went great with everything on the plate. YUM!
Our drink of choice that night was a special sake that Lola brought back from her recent trip to Japan. “Kamotsuru” Gold Sake that had gold flakes in it. The gold flakes were shaped like cherry blossoms. We were so stoked when one of the gold flakes landed in our glass, cause they were so cute!
We ended the night with freshly baked cookies, compliments of owner Liz Watanabe. That oatmeal raisin cookie and almond cookie were so yummy. The perfect ending to our foodie venture.
Mahalo to owner Liz Watanabe for having us! You are such a ball of energy and an amazing host. We had such a great time! We’re just sad we couldn’t try your famous homemade cheese cake. Next time we’ll come earlier so we won’t miss out!
Lola, Liz, and myself.
