Hubby and I recently lunched at TASTE OF ALOHA (link):
Our mission is to serve the best Polynesian comfort food, in an enjoyable atmosphere for customers & employees. It's a popular place to meet friends & enjoy good, affordable food. Perfect for the business lunch crowd, families & students.
One of my coworkers recommended it. She was curious of our thoughts as recent Hawaiian residents.
We ordered the Moloka'i Slide - Sampler teri pork, teri beef & BBQ Kalua on King's Hawaiian rolls.
By the way, Chef Robert Alcain hails from Moloka'i. Check out my trip to Moloka'i at this link.
I ordered the Kanak Attack Burger - Seasoned, grilled burger, topped with pepperjack cheese, teriyaki pork, fried egg, grilled pineapple, sautéed onions & teri mayo. The burger was tasty ... and so was the mac salad.
Hubby ordered the Teriyaki Beef plate lunch. The plate lunches comes with three scoops of rice and/or mac salad. Hawaiians never met a carb they didn't like ....
I took home an order of Lomi Lomi Salmon - salt-cured salmon, seasoned and mixed with tomatoes & onions. I enjoyed it as an afternoon treat.
We made our selves at home. Have you sampled Hawaiian food?

Yes, Eddie would go to Taste of Aloha. Eddie Aikau was a beloved lifeguard along Oahu's North Shore. He gave his life in trying to save others. His friends also placed a monument at Waimea Beach Park (link).
