Kaaloa's Super Js Authentic Hawaiian Food
It figures that the best laulau (meat wrapped in taro leaves and ti) in West Hawaii can be found at a roadside hole-in-the-wall rather than at an expensive resort luau. In fact, this humble family-run eatery was featured on the Food Network's "The Best Thing I Ever Ate." Plate lunches to go include tender chicken or pork laulau, steamed for up to 10 hours. The kalua pig and cabbage is delicious, and the lomilomi salmon features vine-ripened tomatoes. Proprietors John and Janice Kaaloa also grind their own poi. No credit cards.
