With laid-back island tunes drifting overhead and photos of friends and family posted on the wall, this
strip-mall restaurant feels more like a weekend cookout. It smells like home, too, with chicken and fish
frying away, sweet and sour sauces simmering, and the light scent of our just-ordered poke salad— fresh,
raw ahi tuna tossed with sesame and furikake—tempting us to begin our meal.
