My boss and I were just driving around, running errands, when we decided to pull into McCully Shopping Center to find something to eat.
I wasn’t thinking about burgers — until I saw a new burger shop had opened this summer in the spot vacated by the Banana Leaf Pasta Cafe.
Pipi’s Burgers, which opened in July, has that cool vibe, with a beach-inspired decor, island music blaring over speakers and surf videos playing on a flat screen mounted in the dining room.
Burgers here are made with seasoned premium Angus beef, made-to-order and topped with interesting marinades and ingredients like panko, shredded daikon and wasabi mayonnaise.
At least that’s what we were told.
So we decided to see for ourselves.
Here’s what our lunch looked like:
Pipi’s Burgers, McCully Shopping Center, 1960 Kapiolani Blvd. Hours: 10:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, 10:30 a.m.-10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Phone: (808) 946-4747
