Do you guys know that Forty Niner was the first restaurant to introduce the Haupia sauce on our Forty Niner Pancakes? Now you see them every where!

The idea came up on a car ride, Wil went back to the restaurant and went straight to the kitchen to work on the recipe. Needless to say it has been a huge hit!
This idea has spread out to many other restaurants locally and even internationally beginning with Japan in 2010 when Kinosh*ta Noritake and Ishibashi Takaaki from the Japanese comedy show “Tunnels” filmed an episode of the show at Forty Niner featuring the Forty Niner Pancake and the Banana French Toast.
Forty Niner was invited to Japan’s after that and it was so cool to see pictures of our food throughout places in Osaka and Tokyo, what an experience! Awesome memories!

Mr. Richard Chagami and his brother Henry Chagami, served in Italy and France as part of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team during World War II.

Part 1. Richard Chagami, born on June 21, 1917, son of Katutaro Chagami, suffered from a heart condition in his youth. His doctor did not feel that he had much longer to live and advised that he enlist in the army since he would be passing away shortly anyway. The idea was that he might as well die giving up his life for his country. Mr. Chagami entered the military draft along with his brother Mr. Henry Chagami. He would overcome his ailment and live a very long and healthy life, passing away at the age of 93. During his service with the army, Mr. Chagami served as a cook, which family members have postulated as the reason behind his culinary passion.

Established in 1947. ✨

Fun Fact: The Forty Niner got its name because the Chagami Family believed that everyone would rush to the establishment like everyone rushed to California during the gold rush.
The building has been preserved throughout the years and is registered by the State of Hawaii Historic Building Society as a local landmark. 🤙

Our Story

The Forty Niner Restaurant was open in 1947 by brothers Richard and Henry Chagami when they returned from World War II where they served in Italy and France with the 442nd Army Regimental Combat Team.

The restaurant has been a landmark in Aiea and has a very warm and nostalgic feel with both architecture and food. The building has been inducted in the State of Hawaii Historic Building Society, the original counter area, tables, and chairs are still there and original menu items are still served the same as 71 years ago. We have however expanded our menu, by serving breakfast and dinner. We have added dishes to cover all of our diverse clientele.

Our service is casual yet very friendly and efficient, we emphasis treating our customers as family, and giving the sense as if they were eating at there own home, 95% of our customers are returned guest.

The Forty Niner Menu includes the original saimin, homemade local style burgers, beef cutlet, hamburger steak, we also serve some local favorites such as garlic chicken, pork roast, Hawaiian plate, fried noodles in addition to many other menu items and daily specials. Our all day breakfast menu has become very popular, some of the best selling items are our Forty Niner pancakes (banana macadamia nut pancakes smothered with our warm haupia sauce) fried rice, and smoked meat with onions.

Hi!! So my daughter has her virtual doctorate graduation from Chaminade on Saturday... she was kinda bummed that due to covid, her actual graduation (which she busted her butt for many years to get here) would be virtual... When asked where/what she wanted to eat at our family get together (her mini graduation party), she said I want the food to be from Forty Niners. My grandparents and their siblings used to go to Forty Niners in their young adult years... I don't know what the connection is here, but something about it all is bringing tears to my eyes, every time I try to figure out what it is that is choking me up about this... Maybe because my grandma raised my daughter and grandma recently passed... Not sure... When Grandpa was alive he would talk about Forty Niners and just say stuff like, yeah i like Forty Niners.. they was there long time you know... Grandma would say, the pink building Forty Niners.. they still open?? Long time you know they was there.. amazing they still around... and to think, my daughter is the 4th generation, who knew she was aware of this great establishment.. Long story, trying to cut short... thank you for your many many years of hard work, dedication, preserverence and just overall "gumption." Thank you for being apart of my entire family's life story.... God bless..
Roast Pork and Spaghetti/Mac salad was the bomb. Sorry no picture we didn’t have time we were so hungry.
