Dani's has been a Lihue, Kauai staple for countless Hawaii citizens for quite some time. If you are a fan of Hawaiian style tripe stew, this is the place on Kauai to get it. However, if you want to eat a Hawaiian food plate (lau lau and other assorted local favorits such as poi, lomi salmon, and kalua pig), forego the lau lau. Generally speaking for those of you who are unfamiliar with Hawaiian cuisine, a lau lau usually consists of pork and fish wrapped in taro leaves and steamed for hours encased in ti leaves (sort of like banana leaves). After you unwrap and discard the ti leaves, you're supposed to be able to eat the taro leaves and meat. Unfortunately, my lau lau had absolutely no taro leaves to speak of, just pork and fish. Maybe it's a Kauai thing, but I like my steamed taro leaves (for you Southerners, think collard greens).
