Kona Kai, Philadelphia
Kona Kai is problably one of the best and absolutely the most interesting restaurant in Philadelphia. Upon arriving, you will find what looks like an old German ale house (what it used to be) on the outside, but will be amazed when you step inside. You will literally feel as if you have stepped into Hawai'i or some other Polynesian destination. Everything is made of bamboo and there are palm trees everywhere! The food is great and a little pricy, and there is also a Hibatchi room. But the thing that makes this restaurant really unique is the entertainment. A Polynesian band plays music as hula dancers from all dirfferent Polynesian countries do amazing dances right in the middle of the restaurant.
Favorite Dish: The Hawai'ian Clam Chowder is THE BEST SOUP ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH! Even if you don't like soup.
As for the entrees, I would go for the Kona Pork, which is pork tenderloins with a mango glaze.
The flourless chocolate cake is awesome for dessert!
