Chef Ed Kenney has pulled off a real trick at this comfy corner bistro: he's created a menu of comfort foods drawn from Honolulu's many cultures and he's made it harmonize. One of the city's most lauded restaurants, Mud Hen Water has seating inside or at picnic tables in a cute little side yard.
Enjoy fried chicken with Szechuan salt, mussels with Portuguese sausage, beet poke, chicken croquettes and much more. The brunch menu is worth getting up for and the bar brings crafty wit to its cocktails. Be sure to reserve.
