Garlic Shrimp ($10)

At Kau Kau Grill, situated in Mapunapuna, one can find a plethora of flavors jam-packed onto a single plate. The eatery is especially popular at lunch-time for those working in the area, including construction workers, as well as customers stopping by to pick up catering items.

Having perfected its plate-lunch fare, the family-run business serves up ono food and has something for everyone. Garlic-lovers can rejoice as this eatery rolls out three different delectable entrees for the taking.

Garlic Chicken ($10)

Seafood fans will enjoy Garlic Ahi ($12), featuring fresh (never frozen) seared ahi, or Garlic Shrimp ($10). The marinated shrimp is popular, and is great in the two-choice combo ($15) — in which diners can pick and choose any two entrees, such as Barbecue Baby Back Ribs or Teri Chicken. Create a surf-and-turf combo with Garlic Shrimp and Pulehu Beef Short Ribs, which will definitely send you “surfing” (or flying) into food heaven.

Or, enjoy a unique take on Garlic Chicken ($10), which starts with pieces of boneless, skinless chicken thighs that are pan-fried in a delectable, garlicky sauce.

All three entrees feature Kau Kau Grill’s homemade garlic sauce that uses olive oil instead of butter, offering a not-so-heavy taste with a bold flavor. Plate lunches are served with white rice and your choice of macaroni or tossed salad.

With the holidays coming up, don’t forget to call Kau Kau Grill for your catering needs. The eatery can accommodate customized orders to fit any budget or party size.
