    Noticed the other day in the plaza across from Brazenhead on 5th Avenue in Grandview with the Five Guys Burgers and Buffalo Wild Wings that the old defunct Panda Express has a sign up that it’s going to be a new restaurant called Aloha Hawaiian BBQ & Asian Fusion. Seems like a unique pairing and wondered if anyone knew any more info like an opening date or more info on the menu.

    Oh that is exciting!!

    I don’t know anything about this specific restaurant, but these sorts of places are littered across the west coast and are delicious. Note: it is not going to be confused with health food.

    The Hawaiian + Asian fusion is actually not an unusual pairing–it’s pretty much the norm. Most of the places will do a traditional plate with additional options like chicken katsu or teriyaki chicken.

    Liking the way that sounds… reminds me of pineapple pork satay…

    Hrm. I’d love some place that served the food that Anne & I had while on our honeymoon on the Big Island. Would probably be right up your alley, Rus. Lots of deep-fried seafood, sticky rice, mayo-heavy macaroni salad or potato salad, fried Spam, and yellow sauces that seemed mayo-based. It was all awesome but felt like we were consuming 3000 calories with every meal. A few photos:

    Seriously? There was just a multi-tweet conversation about Spam, and now this. The universe is clearly leading me down a path of canned, even jellied meats.

    Tried Aloha Hawaiian BBQ & Asian Bistro tonight for dinner (it’s only been open 2 days now) and was pleasantly surprised. Little has changed from the previous design scheme of the former Panda Express that used to be here but the food is definitely better. It’s a walk up to the counter and order and they bring it to you kind of place. The menu is a mix of Asian and Hawaiian entrees and features short ribs, BBQ chicken, teriyaki chicken, chicken kansu (panko crusted chicken), beef and some fried seafood specialties like shrimp and mahi mahi. The price point is super affordable – under $8 affordable. And you get a meat entree, steamed rice and a macaroni salad with the Hawaiian dishes.

    Tried the chicken kansu with kansu sauce. Found the macaroni salad very tasty and the panko chicken crispy and a great complement to the sweet, tangy sauce. Also tried the BBQ chicken with a really flavorful teriyaki sauce. Very much recommend this place. Hope it does well! It’s also good for families and kids (there were quite a few there when I was there).
