Fodor's Expert Review Verde

$ Kapaa and Wailua Mexican

Combining classic Mexican food with chili-based sauces and creations from the chef's home state of New Mexico, Verde's menu includes tostadas, enchiladas, and tacos served with fresh fish or slow-cooked chicken or local grass-fed beef. The seared tuna tacos with red chili aioli and the stacked enchilada, with chicken or beef short ribs smothered in red or green chili sauce, are favorites. The food runs hot and spicy. Beers and margaritas served with premium tequila complement the spicy sauces perfectly. There's a second location in the Kokulei Village in Lihue.
