A plate lunch is the ultimate lunchtime meal in Hawaii. It’s the perfect combination of food — usually with scoops of rice and salad (macaroni or garden) along with a main entree — that will fill you up for the rest of the day.
At Kahai Street Kitchen, you can expect to find a plate lunch to satisfy any of your cravings.
This local eatery expanded from a catering business in Kalihi to a full-fledged restaurant in its new Moiliili location, serving up both local favorites, such as beef stew and hamburger steak, and gourmet dishes, including crab-crusted mahi mahi and guava barbecue braised brisket.
Along with a delicious catering and lunch menu, Kahai Street Kitchen’s head chef, David Yamamoto, also creates mouthwatering daily specials.
This week, dig into Ooey Gooey Baked Mac and Cheese Pot Pie ($11.25), a warm dish filled with macaroni, chicken, bacon, chopped vegetables and a melted four-cheese blend.
START THE MORNING OFF RIGHT
For breakfast at Moiliili’s Kahai Street Kitchen, try Hawaiian/Moiliili Eggs Benedict ($11.95), featuring the eatery’s signature Okinawan sweet potato kalua cakes with layers of shredded kalua pork and sauteed spinach, then topped with poached eggs and a homemade hollandaise sauce. The irresistible dish remains on special this week!
