Legendary Restaurant Known for its Unique Offerings of Both Traditional and Tropical Faire and Fresh-Baked Goods Will Stay Open During its Remodeling and Will Unveil its New Look and Menu.

Torrance, Ca -- King’s Hawaiian continues its close to 50-year tradition of quality foods by remodeling the popular restaurant and bakery which opened in Southern California in 1988. The restaurant, with moderately priced mouth-watering faire, and the legendary bakery, now the South Bay’s largest, is continually recognized as one of the Southland’s favorite food destinations.

Famous throughout the United States for its original recipe Portuguese sweet bread, King’s Hawaiian is distributed to supermarkets nationwide as well as in Canada, Europe and the Far East. However, while the sweet bread is readily available to all Americans, the King’s Hawaiian Bakery and Restaurant, at 2808 W. Sepulveda Blvd. in Torrance, is the only outlet for King’s Hawaiian’s exceptional cuisine and full-range of specialty baked goods. Understanding the one-of-a-kind nature of the restaurant and bakery makes it easier to explain the enthusiastic faithfulness of its patrons, many of whom have been known to travel three or more hours to savor the restaurant’s faire.

King’s Hawaiian Bakery and Restaurant will stay open during the remodel, which will include a new look for the restaurant and exciting additions to the menu. Commonly referred to as what the locals eat or tropical faire, the menu deftly blends classic American favorites with traditional Asian and native Hawaiian foods. Guest will be able to enjoy menu favorites like Huli Huli Chicken, marinated for hours and then charbroiled over an open flame; Deluxe Saimin: Hawaiian-style noodles in a seafood broth with char sui, green onions, scrambled egg and kamaboko; and the Luau Platter, which combines several popular menu items; alongside new items such as Broiled Miso Mahi Mahi with a Cilantro-Ale Tamarind Sauce; and even comfort foods such as Meatloaf and King’s Fried Chicken all in a relaxed, warm and neighborhood-like setting.

King’s Hawaiian Bakery is also pleased to announce the addition of a specialty coffee bar. A variety of coffees will be available to complement the famous bakery items, including King’s Hawaiian special gourmet blend as well as lattes, espressos, iced mochas and a wide selection of Kona coffees. Guests will also be able to enjoy their coffee and baked goods seated in the bakery area, outside on the restaurant’s patio or, if they wish, they may take their steaming cups of coffees "to go."
