Cinco de Buho


On the fifth of every month, grab your friends, put on your dancing shoes and bring your appetite to the best rooftop party in the 96815 - Cinco de Buho. Yes, that's right, celebrate Cinco de Mayo style year round at Waikiki's only open air Mexican restaurant, Buho.  Enjoy delicious $2 tacos and drink specials from 6pm to 1am, while you salsa the night away with your favorite partner in tequila crime. On our visit, we did a little too much eating and regretfully didn't make it to the dance floor. It was hard to say no to the steady flow of authentic Mexican dishes making their way to our table from Chef Arturo Silva's kitchen. The fare tasted and looked both gorgeous and fresh. Buho's "AWARD WINNING" Ceviche - fresh yellowtail, serrano pepper, apple cider reduction, pickled watermelon rinds and candied jamaica - is outstanding! Eyes closed while eating the Carne Asada Tacos - yellow onion, fresh cilantro, tomatillo habanero salsa - and I'm instantly transported to some of the best street taco stands in Mexico, another paradise I once called home. A few more rounds of Casamigos tequila cocktails and I might even start speaking Spanish!  On second thought, I'll leave that to the professionals, but next time I vow to salsa to my heart's content under the glorious Mexican star filled night's sky. Oh wait, I'm in Waikiki. I meant Hawaiian...

Buen provecho en Buho Cantina!
