Laulau, lomi salmon, kalua pig, poi: The names of Hawaiian dishes roll off the tongue as deliciously as they taste.
For a casual feast of true island flavors, head to one of Oahu’s Hawaiian restaurants like Helena’s, winner of a James Beard Regional Classic award.
Just remember: Hawaiian food is meant to be shared, family-style, and alternating bites of sweet, salty, meaty and fresh dishes will have your palate dancing. So ono (delicious)!
Open Tuesday through Friday, 10:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
