Aji House at Xyloh 1220 Kona St. 593-2227 Perfect for happy hour (and beyond), Aji House at Xyloh is the latest spot for pau hana drinks and pupus. Open daily from 6 p.m., Aji House is open until 1 a.m. and features delicious, shareable dishes created by chefs from Hoku’s at the Kahala Resort (they’re currently working both their day jobs at Hoku’s and heading over to Aji House in the evenings — you’ve got to admire that kind of passion for food and the restaurant business). Try their specialties, like the sake marinated beef with a brulee of sweet basil and miso (pictured above), the tofu tataki, salt and pepper crispy calamari, and the Korean-style chicken wings. Besides great food, Aji House also features half-price drinks all night long — cocktails are only $3, premium cocktails go for $4. And did we mention the free karaoke? What are you waiting for?
