East Oahu is home to two new eateries Corner Kitchen and Papa’s Burgers.

* Corner Kitchen opened in mid-November at 477 Kapahulu Ave., taking the place of ZenShu restaurant, and the location is notorious for its lack of parking.

General manager Patti Sato said parking hasn’t been too big of an issue. Hee Hing Restaurant has made its parking lot available for a $3 valet fee after 5 p.m. There’s also parking across the street and at First Hawaiian Bank after 5 p.m.

Some local favorites are Boneless Kalbi, Karaage Chicken soaked in sake and ginger, the Crispy Crunch Pork Baby Back Ribs or a sampling of the three. The sushi chef has 12-plus years’ experience in Hawaii and serves rolls and traditional nigiri.

Live music plays five nights a week (not Thursdays or Saturdays); the sushi bar also is closed Thursdays. For more information call 732-3217.

* Papa’s Burgers is making waves at Market City Shopping Center in the space formerly home to Blazin’ Steaks. Its mission is to give people fresh, local food, grass-fed beef and real potatoes for fries.

The Pork & Shrimp Thai and Miso burgers are Asianinspired specials, and all burgers come with a variety of sauces and fresh toppings. More traditional choices such as Portabella and Bacon Cheeseburgers are available, too. For the sweet tooth, there’s green tea, mocha and peanut butter milkshakes and more on the menu.

It’s open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily at 2919 Kapiolani Blvd. For more information, call 732-5100.

Liquor licenses are pending for both sites.
