Waikikie Hawaiian BBQ
What?! Hawaiian BBQ???? :oO How did I not know about this place!? Spelling typo aside, I was invited here by a friend who is obviously withholding awesome restaurant information from me. [Note to self: browbeat said friend for more info.] This is located near the intersection of Briarcliff and LaVista with limited parking but you could easily park across the street, if need be. I ordered the Waikikie Combo. You have two options for sides - either 2 scoops of steamed rice + 1 scoop macaroni salad OR green salad. You can tell from the picture which side I chose, and I chose it simply because I have not been eating a lot of greens lately... as evidenced by previous posts. ;oP
They were really skimpy on the dressing... but it ended up being an adequate amount for me. Just FYI.
Waikikie Combo: BBQ beef, BBQ short ribs, and BBQ chicken
It was a good, cheap meal. Ultimately, it reminded me of Korean BBQ, which is a testament to the multitude Asian populations that have inhabited Hawaii over time. In case you were wondering, that is cabbage underneath the BBQ meats. It was just the right portion size for me - I cleaned my plate!
