Ron Simon

Chef Ron has enjoyed 18 years of customizing and catering to high end guests and to exclusive members with superior palettes. He started from the bottom up as a busser in high school to waiting tables and finally to cooking and baking, experiencing the ins and outs of the restaurant world. Now, he wishes to share with his community his passion for building flavors and that each and every dish inspires aloha, ‘ohana, and ola.

They have enjoyed meeting and serving folks at the Aloha Tower, Blaisdell Center, and Kapiolani Community College farmer’s markets in 2017. We also appreciated the opportunity at Cafe Waiola on the campus of the University of Hawai‘i John A. Burns School of Medicine in Kaka‘ako. Our new home for ‘Ōlena by Chef Ron Simon is now open in Kalihi across from the Hawaiian Chip Company. From our family to yours, we look forward to bringing our wholesome food to your home, heart, body, and soul.
