Ono Hawaiian Foods Restaurant Review

: This tiny neighborhood restaurant serving traditional Hawaiian fare has a few cramped wooden booths and baseball caps hung on the wall for décor. When there’s no room inside to eat, people stand in line on the sidewalk, often with six-packs of beer under their arms, as Ono has no liquor license. Inside, order the combination plates---kalua pig, pipi kaula (a Hawaiian beef jerky), lau lau (pork and taro tops steamed inside ti leaves) and lomi lomi salmon (with tomatoes and green onion). We suggest rice instead of poi for the uninitiated. If you can’t wait, order take-out and eat in Kapiolani Park down the street.
