    There are also fusion plates that include Miso Sea Bass with Lobster Reduction ($45), which comes alongside mashed Yukon Gold potatoes, local green beans and baby carrots; a Pineapple Lobster Curry ($59) and a Grilled Rib Eye Steak ($52). The latter is seared to perfection and topped off with herb butter. It’s served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and veggies.
“Being in Hawaii for over 35 years, I’ve eat- en all the Hawaiian food, so we kind of know how to create all of that,” says Chao- wasaree regarding how he crafted the
menu. “As a chef, if you know how to
cook, you know how to make anything.

When I go out to eat at a restaurant and I try any food, in the back of my head, I can imagine how to make it already.”
Come July, KALO will be serving a breakfast menu, which will be influenced by local cul- ture, too. Expect the evergreen morning meal of a Hawaiian Breakfast (fried rice, Portuguese sausage and scrambled eggs) for $15, as well as a Kalua Pork Omelet ($18).
“Our main key is that we want visitors to try Hawaiian food. “A lot of times, they’ve only had it at big luaus, so the quality of the food is totally different than in the restaurant.”
Locals who would like to try a taste for them- selves can stop by from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. for a 20% kamaaina discount when you mention Dining Out.
“Our restaurant is not that big so we don’t accept reservations, but if you come before 5:30, we’re guarantee to have room ... It’s a win-win for everybody,” Chaowasaree says with a smile.
