MAC 24-7

MAC 24-7 is a fairly new restaurant located in the Hilton Waikiki Prince Kuhio. It is known for serving "Modern American Cuisine" 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This restaurant serves breakfast at all hours of the day and are known for gigantic-sized portions. Upon arriving at the restaurant, you are taken into a futuristic setting, making you feel as though you are part of the Jetsons. The ambiance is really interesting with orange painted walls, shiny dome-like sugar dispensers, and hanging silver ball decorations. I visited this place on three occasions; twice for dinner and once for breakfast. I must say, the novelty of this restaurant is what made me go back a second time; however by the second visit, I discovered that the food nothing impressive (just really big!).
The Japanese Breakfast included salmon, miso soup, a "soft" boiled egg, and fruit. The miso soup and salmon were too salty and the soft boiled egg was a "hard" boiled egg.

The pancakes were a feast for the eyes but not for the stomach. They are impressive in size (about 12-inches in diameter and 1.5 inches thick...three of them piled high!) but upon tasting the dry, rubbery pancake it is nothing but impressive in taste.

Just like the pancakes, the "sumo saimin" is impressive in size but short on taste. The tough noodles make it difficult to enjoy this dish.
Overall, this place is fun for large gatherings because of the atmosphere and novelty of the food, just don't expect quality food!
