Kuhio Grille

Kuhio Grille Review

There's no atmosphere to speak of and water is served in unbreakable plastic, but if you're searching for local fare—that undefinable fusion of ethnic cuisines—this the place. Sam Araki serves a 1-pound laulau (a steamed bundle of taro leaves and pork) that is worth the trip. Other grindz include loco moco, oxtail soup, plate lunches, pork chops, steaks, saimin, stir-fry, and daily specials. At the edge of Hilo's largest mall, above the parking lot near Longs, this local diner opens at 6 am.
