Say Hello to Heaping Portions of Hawaiian Food at Aloha Cafe

August 23, 2016 by  
Filed under Restaurants

Hawaiian transplants adore Aloha Cafe, where they say they can indulge in authentic, well-prepared Hawaiian fare specialties. The portions here are enormous, regulars say, definitely big enough for two people to share, even if both are hungry. Try the kalua pork, the loco moco, the French toast, the aloha breakfast, or the kal-B chicken. If you’re craving a Hawaiian specialty that’s not on the menu, don’t hesitate to ask: sometimes the staff can come through with a special order. In fact, many customers appreciate the friendly “aloha spirit” of the servers, who are known to go out of their way to make customers feel at home.

Aloha Cafe can get pretty busy and you might have a short wait for a table, but it’s usually not very long. Don't forget to get your parking validated before you leave!

The Lazy Ox Canteen serves New American fare with a global twist. Relying on produce and meats from local purveyors, the eatery adheres to a philosophy of "quality eating"; that is, approaching food preparation and meal time as something worth celebrating.

Regulars recommend the pig ear chicharrones, the caramelized cauliflower, the porcini risotto, and the seven-ounce Lazy Ox burger. For dessert, try the butterscotch budino or the rice pudding, both of which are popular. Pair your meal with one of the eatery's housemade "canteen wines," or opt for a draft beer or some sake. (Come during happy hour for the best deals.)

The Lazy Ox Canteen is open seven days a week. Don't miss the restaurant's popular weekend brunch!
