AO Hawaiian Hideout

View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

When you’re looking to escape the harsh reality that is winter in Chicago, AO Hawaiian Hideout in the South Loop should be on your list. This spot really leans into the tropical island theme, so you’ll see straw huts, fake fish, and sunset murals all over the place. But don’t let the kitschy decor distract you from how good the food is here. The menu is long—besides their signature Hawaiian plates, you’ll also find dishes from across East Asia, Southeast Asia, and Polynesia, plus a dedicated vegan and gluten-free section. But definitely get one of their poké bowls, a tiki drink for under $12 (complete with a little umbrella), and settle in to listen to some Elvis and pretend you’re not on Wabash.
