My "excellent" rating is based on several things. 1) it is open air, reminiscent of many of the buildings in Kailua Kona Hawaii. 2) we were prepared to pay full price for a meal, however the gentleman at the counter advised us it was happy...More

We're a cozy Hawaiian spot on the corner of La Jolla Blvd. & Pearl St. Our menu ranges from Hawaiian favorites like the quintessential Plate Lunch, to Loco Moco and Ahi Poke. We also serve more of a local style in our Mahi Mahi Tacos, Hamburgers, and Acai Bowls.
