Get Back To Basics At This No-Frills Restaurant Hiding Out In Hawaii

We all know you should never judge a book by its cover, but the same rule applies when it comes to judging a restaurant’s food by simply looking at the building’s appearance. Whether an eatery features cramped seating, a hard to find location, cheap food, a dated storefront, or prefers to serve their food out of a truck, many of our favorite restaurants in Hawaii could easily be classified as hole in the wall spots —including this no-frills eatery.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
