My last Hawaiian Barbeque experience had been a bit disappointing, but I was certainly willing to give it another try, particularly on a recommendation. I'm glad I did.
We started with the Lumpia Shanghai ($2.99), thin, crispy egg rolls filled with ground pork, which came with a sweet chili sauce. They were fine but nothing particularly special.
totient got the Kalua Pig and Katsu Combo ($7.49) and I got the Mix Plate (also $7.49). He made the better choice. The Kalua Pig--shredded pork with cabbage--was excellent. Flavorful and moist, it was the highlight of the meal. The chicken katsu wasn't bad, either, pleasantly breaded and a bit less oily than usual. My mix plate came with teriyaki chicken, beef, and mahi-mahi. The mahi-mahi was a thin slice, fried. At first it looked like a fried egg. Alas, it was rather bland and limp. The teriyaki chicken wasn't bad, but it was pretty much generic teriyaki chicken, although reasonably well executed. The beef was better, tasty but a bit chewier than I like.
Both meals were accompanied by the standard white rice and macaroni salad. Both competently done, but we both reached our limit of macaroni salad pretty early.
Aloha Kitchen serves good Hawaiian at a reasonable price. I'm thinking I'll be going back for the kalua pig.
(Thanks for the pointer!)
