BLT Steak Waikiki is presenting an exclusive offering of local oysters from Kualoa Ranch, starting today.

Last year, Kualoa Ranch started selling the first locally grown Pacific and Kumamoto oysters in decades. Growing more quickly in Hawaii's temperate weather than on the mainland, these homegrown oysters are described as being savory and kelpy.

The oysters will be sold one to two days a week, depending on availability, at $22 for a half dozen, and $42 for a dozen.

BLT Steak Waikiki is in the Trump Hotel Waikiki, 223 Saratoga Road. Call (808) 683-7440.
