This modest eatery serves breakfast and lunch only, and cooks such token island dishes as "Laulau," or pork wrapped in taro and ti leaves, and "kalua pig," or slow roasted pig cooked in an underground oven.
Appetizer highlights include butter poached kona lobster and the signature soup and sandwich--chilled tomato soup with a grilled mozzarella, foie gras and kalua pig sandwich.
Its creative appetizers include tempura ahi wrapped in nori; steamed clams with kalua pig; and roasted duck nachos with homemade tapioca chips.
According to the Advertiser, the restaurant also received the James Beard Award as a "regional treasure." Imu-cooked kalua pig and short ribs are the types of food found at this casual eatery.
