One highlight at Halekulani Okinawa is the in-house restaurant “Innovative SHIROUX”, which puts a modern French spin on locally sourced ingredients.
The exquisite marriage of local Okinawan and high-end French tastes is truly an exceptional experience, and perhaps a testament to the potential of the island’s cuisine.
Expect unconventional local ingredients such as mozuku seaweed, sea snake, or umi budou to be combined beautifully with locally caught grouper or the famous Motobu beef.
While a meal at the restaurant can unquestionably stand on its own, your experience will be enhanced even further if you happen to catch the sunset while dining.
