In the mood for a big meal? Perhaps some sumo-sized pancakes or maybe a tureen of the Japanese soup saimin? Take a seat at MAC 24-7, a new Waikiki restaurant in the Hilton Prince Kuhio Hotel. Any time of day or night, diners find a diverse, well-priced menu with some special XXL offerings. Choose Mac Daddy pancakes ($12) in combinations such as banana, walnut and chocolate chunk or the Elvis, peanut butter and bacon. The flapjacks are bigger than a dinner plate. In the mood for pasta? Order the white cheddar mac and cheese ($12).
We loved . . . the sweet and smoky pulled pork kalua sandwich ($12) and the "killer" cupcakes (our favorite was the warm macadamia nut bread pudding cupcake for $6.)
We didn't love . . . that the three meals we ordered arrived at different times.
