Noho's Hawaiian Cafe Restaurant Review

: Surfboards line the walls and the warm personal service reinforces the relaxed feel of a vacation getaway. As for the menu, most entrées follow the traditional style of the plate lunch: hunks of meat accompanied by rice and macaroni salad. You may order in three sizes (no serving is truly small), all the way up to the gargantuan. Spicy Korean chicken, Kalua-barbecued pork and short ribs are all popular proteins. Those watching their calories may prefer a vegetable or ahi stir-fry, and consider substituting a green salad for the ubiquitous macaroni. Yakisoba noodles pair with a choice of four sauces; beware, the garlic version is wickedly hot. When weather permits, outdoor picnic tables are available for dining. Also located at 4627 NE Fremont St., 503-445-6646; and 330 E. McAndrews Rd., Medford, 541-245-6919.
